We had a quick getaway to London in May, thanks to Norwegian Air, who started offering low-cost non-stop flights from Tampa, Florida to Gatwick, London. We tried to fit in as much as possible during the 3 days we were there and here are some of our favorite spots we enjoyed in London.
London is a huge tourist destination and we can’t believe it’s taken us so long to finally visit. We are happy to report that we had an amazing time and will definitely make another trip back. There were a few things we learned on our first visit and hope these tips will help when you make that first journey to London.
Stopping by Peggy Porschen Cakes has been on our list for a while. If you’re on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve seen this cute pink cafe on your feed at least once. We’re suckers for anything cute and Peggy Porschen definitely nails it. It’s one of the girliest cafes out there. Not only is their building adorable but their cupcakes are gorgeous.
We always like to do at least one quirky thing on our trips and when we stumbled upon ABQ London, we were immediately in! We’re both huge fans of the TV show, Breaking Bad, and this bar is based on that show where you can make your own cocktails in a more scientific way.
When we booked our flights to London, we were excited to start planning our accommodations. We mix up our accommodations from Airbnb to hotels on our trips, but for our vacay in London we wanted to stay at the Kimpton Fitzroy.
On our recent trip to London, we were introduced to a tour agency website called Hi, hi Guide. The name “Hi, hi” is quite catchy and the concept of the company is to book a private tour with a local in the destination you are traveling to. As soon as we saw the words “local” and “private”, we knew this was an experience we couldn’t pass up. We are all about finding hidden gems and it’s usually the locals that know where they are.
We had never been to England so when we heard that Norwegian Air was going to start offering direct flights from Tampa, Florida to London, we were thrilled! When we booked our flights to London, we decided to try their Premium Cabin.
