My 2018 plans involve a lot of travel. Which is super exciting.
But they also involve a lot of time at home in London. Which I might* be even more excited about.
Especially because there’s a lot in this incredible city I want to do this year…
See Wicked (the musical) ✅
I got tickets for it last week but I messed the dates up and wasted said tickets.
But, I’m still just as in love with the Wicked soundtrack and 2018 is the year when I hear it live!
Dine at St John (booked)
St John is a legend of the London restaurant scene and one whose philosophy I 100% get behind. And it’s about 5min away from the flat I moved to about 10 months ago.
And yet, I haven’t managed to get myself down there yet.
Something clearly need to be done and soon!
Visit the Barbican Conservatory
Another one that’s been on my list since we moved into our Clerkenwell flat. Another one I haven’t managed to fit into our weekends so far.
It has greenhouses and tropical plants and amazing light so I really don’t know what I’ve been waiting for tbh.
See more of East London
One of my favourite London memories from last year was a visit to the Columbia Flower Market, followed by lunch at Monty’s Deli.
There’s just something about East London in the daytime that’s so beautiful, ecclectic and fun and I definitely want to make sure I make plans to get more of this in my near future.
Things along the lines of lunch at The Marksman (this custard tart will be mine!), more Columbia Road flowers, Beigel Bake bagels, brunch at Morito… Anything else I need to add to the East London list?
Eat at Temper City
We loved having dinner at Temper‘s Soho restaurant last year.
And then they went and opened a new venue in the city, where they focus on applying Indian flavours to their winning meat-and-cocktail concept.
So yeah, that’s happening soon…
Go to the (not quite so new anymore) Design Museum
It’s my favourite London museum. The new venue has been open for aaaaaages. And I haven’t been yet.
I’ll let you do the math.
Make the most of the Open House Day
Last year, we visited London City Hall and I’m still not quite over how fantastic that wonky building looks from the inside!
This time around, I’d like to get a closer look at some of my other favourite London buildings, maybe the gorgeous Courts of Justice, or the Gherkin…
Climb Primrose Hill
Never been though it seems to be a must-do. See where I’m going with this?
Explore more tiny streets & take more pictures for no reason whatsoever
Because it’s not all about blogging/instagraming/creating some content…
What’s on your London wish list this year? Any place you can’t wait to (re)visit?
*might because, well, our US travel plans involve a return visit to Katz’s Deli and a first-time visit to In-n-Out, so yeah, there’s that.
