On the second day Corey, Jimmy, Kelly and Joe set off for Amsterdam and I spent two days wedding dress shopping with my sister. The good news.....I bought a dress!!! It is currently hiding in my house from Corey but needs to be taken to mums asap and hung up. It's a tea length dress and exactly what I wanted and that is all I am going to say about that :P On Thursday Joe & Kelly went off to visit some of Kelly's family and Jimmy went off to visit his family so Corey and I got to spend a couple of days alone with Hayley and Kieran. We spent Thursday at the British Museum which was really interesting and we also hunted out Platform 9 3/4.
On Friday we spent the morning at Borough Markets which are an amazing food markets. Everyone has taste testers at their stalls so you just wander around all day and taste test. They have everything from meat, fish and cheese to wines & desserts and cakes. It was amazing!!! After we wander around their for a while we went and saw the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. Unfortunately I do not have any photos from this day cause I only took my slr out and it got stolen the next night before I loaded any photos onto facebook. On Friday night we went to see the Lion King which was AMAZING!!! I would see it again in a heartbeat.
On Saturday we went to Portobello Markets and Camden Markets and then we went out to dinner with our friends on Brick Lane. This was the night my camera was stolen so again no photos from during the day but when I get photos off my friend I will be able to show you some of the markets but that won't be for a week or 2. Here is one from the pub before we went to dinnner that I got on my point and shoot.
On Sunday Joe, Kelly and Jimmy went and saw all the sights we had seen the days that they had been away so we just had a nice relaxing morning and then went and visited some friends of ours who live in London. Kieran's sister who I went to primary school with also came to visit and we went out for Sunday dinner.
On Monday we took a trip to the seaside also known as Brighton. Brighton is a really cute little seaside town and we spent the whole day wandering around the little lanes checking out the shops. We also visited Brighton Pier which has an arcade and carnival rides on the end of it which was a lot of fun.
And because there obviously is not enough photos in this post yet here are a few random ones from our week in London that I wanted to share...
On Tuesday morning we flew from London to Barcelona but that will have to wait until the next post. Stay tuned.....
