Pre and post-Shard visit, Moon and I had a bit of a jaunt around London town, something we haven’t done in a while – though since then, we were in London almost every weekend in July. Ridiculous.
Even though it’s basic tourist stuff, walking up/down Southbank in the sunshine truly is one of the nicest things to do in London. Starting at Borough Market in the morning, we walked right along the Thames (via Wahaca St Pauls) before ending up back at Waterloo to head over to Southfields to take a peek at our friends, Dan and Kirstin’s new home. Not a bad day out, big LDN isn’t so bad to visit every now and then.
Seeing the Shard from a distance, even after being at the top is still quite amazing. It’s not even the tallest building I’ve seen and the scale, I guess when compared to the rest of the London skyline, is awesome.
Everything about the dining experience at Wahaca St Pauls was on-point. It’s probably not a great sign for them that it was a Saturday lunchtime in London and we just sat right down but the quality of service and food were nothing short of brilliant. I’d happily have there as my Wahaca of choice, I’m not a fan of waiting lists, seats at the bar or pagers.
The OXO tower looks as though it’s attempting to become London’s answer to Hong Kong’s PMQ, it would certainly be welcome.
