Adventure planning: Other Amusements Tour of London

4.6.10 - 21:32
I'm quite excited about this new adventure.

In a few weeks time I'm taking a trip to London for a couple of days. I've been to London before, but there has always been a reason, like a gig or a show or for work. This time I'm going to all the places I never had time to go on other visits! This is the Other Amusements Tour of London.

I'm looking forward to going to the cupcake shops I had to walk past in order to catch trains, fabric shops which were already closed for the night and the Lomography shop - since it's my newest obsession.

And most of all I'm looking forward to trying some macarons from the top bakeries like Ladurée (the top picture) and Pierre Hermé (the second picture) maybe even PAUL,Yauatcha and La Maison du Chocolat if I don't feel sick by then...

Any other recommendations? What would you do with a day in London?


  1. I've been to London before too, always for conventions, never just for fun!
    I hear you can do purikura in Camden and there is a lolita shop there too.
    My favourite place to be in London is Trocadero in Piccadilly Circus. I love all of the pretty jewelry on sale and the huge arcade!

  2. i havent been to london for 6 years :(

    I guess camden market... XD

    cant wait to see ur photos from the trip ^^

  3. I've always wanted to go to London. For sight-seeing, how about the Peter Pan statue in Kensington Park? http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/kensington_gardens/peter_pan_statue.cfm

  4. Thanks for your suggestions :) I'd forgotten about Camden - last time I was there we were going to see Deftones at the Electric Ballroom. Happy days!

  5. Wowowowow! I have never been to London! But I hope you have a great time!

  6. Sweetie, I've been to London. Now I hate myself so much that I didn't go to a cupcake shop nor the lomography shop!
