A Greatest Hits Guide to Magical London
Food & Wine
Arts & Culture
London is one of the most magical cities in the world. I love that I am surrounded by history and culture. I love museum hopping, going for a stroll in Hyde Park, grabbing a sandwich from Pret and finding a spot to sit at Trafalgar Square; the hustle & bustle of modern day life surrounded by ancient history. It's incredible how you can get on a train for a couple of hours and end up on the town of Brighton's beautiful coast, or if I'm in the mood for some ancient history, take a tour to Stonehenge and the Roman Baths. London has everything to offer.
