Dreaming of London

April 24, 2015

I’ve been craving a London day for so long – it’s been months. Whenever I see something that catches my eye I open the ‘notes’ on my phone and jot it down. (Side note: Does anyone else have 73 ‘notes’ on the go? Half-written words, shopping lists, Christmas presents thought up eight months early, old meter readings, brands of vegan nail polish, films to watch… I’m accumulating them as quickly as I am unpublished drafts right here.)

Here are a select few places that I’ve been dreaming of visiting, not including parks, streets, bars or friend’s houses. Because you’ve got to draw the line somewhere, and you can never fit in that much when you’re in London, and I always like to leave a little space for spontaneity and for dedicating some serious time to hanging out with friends.

Cereal Killer Cafe, Brick Lane

The name. The concept. The VEGAN OPTIONS. Word on the (vegan) street is that they know their stuff. Four types of cereal drowned in almond milk and topped with party rings? Yes, please!

Nick Waplington/Alexander McQueen: Working Process

My favourite of all the Tate’s, Britain is a great space and this behind-the-scenes exhibition looks fascinating. I love the way that Nick Waplington talks about his work in the video.

Wellcome Collection

My favourite museum in London, they not only have this amazing crime exhibition on (how has Trout seen this and I haven’t?!) but they also have an exhibition of Victorian vibrators. I tell you.

Club Mexicana

A brand new pop-up, their menu changes depending on where they are but it always looks so good and it’s always vegan. What more could you want?!

Gordon’s Wine Bar

The oldest wine bar in London, I absolutely love popping in for a drink. Only serving wine, or port, it’s one of the most romantic places I’ve ever been.

Special mention also has to go to Norman’s Coach and Horses, The Waiting Room and Cookies and Scream for more food, Soho to pick up a few magazines, shopping in Liberty, a wander down the Southbank, coffee at Fuckoffee, a quick stop in Kensington and a visit to Whole Foods. If I could fit you all in, believe me, I would.

What are your favourite things to do in London? 
Any recommendations for when I finally get up there?

    I’m so desperate to go to cereal killer, making the choice for just one bowl must be impossible!!

    Ugh, I wanna go to London. One of my friends is studying abroad there now and my aunt and uncle are going tomorrow for a vacation. Someday I will travel the world. I hope you get to go soon!
