I remember going to London for the first time, it was 5 or 6 years ago for my birthday.
I was really excited to explore the city as I heard so many good things about it. In an instant this city became dear to my heart.
Since then, I revisited London several times, my last trip was this May.
My favorite areas to walk around are Mayfair and Soho. I enjoyed walking through Mayfair, as you can see all the beautiful architecture, lots of high-end designer stores. Soho is a much more edgier area of London, it has really good restaurants and unique boutiques.
Here is a little guide of where to eat, where to shop when you are in London, hopefully it will be helpful.
Italian restaurant which has a few locations in London, I visited the one located in Soho. The staff is friendly and the food is heavenly tasty.
Trendy bar and restaurant located in Soho offers a mix of British, American and European food. I always visit this restaurant as the dishes are so delicious that you can’t get enough. I’ve tried the salmon, the burgers, both were really tasty.
This stylish self-service Italian restaurant offers delicious pizza, salads, pastry and desserts. Whenever I visited the place it was all the time crowded, there were no free tables. So I took it away and enjoyed it while watching my favorite show.
This cute little shop offers a wide variety of ballerinas. As I am a huge fan of ballet flats, I was pretty happy to find this shop, which has a location in my favorite district in London – Mayfair.
COS – Collection Of Style it is a part of H&M Group. The shop offers essential pieces, classic, simple cuts at an affordable price. As I am all about essentials, I was delighted to find this store and managed to purchase a few basic pieces.
Grand department store located on Oxford Street offers mostly high-end brands, but you can also find budget friendly pieces. My favorite floor is the shoes floor. Here you can find shoes from Nine West to Lanvin.
One of my favorite stores in London. This British label offers punk-rock-chic women and men clothing. The windows and insides are filled with Singer sewing machines, which makes the store unique. When I was in London for the fist time I fell in love with this store and managed to purchase a great shoulder bag and wallet. The other great thing is that you can order online and the delivery is free. I ordered online for several times, my last order was for my birthday a great leather biker jacket.
