A ‘Me’ Day in London-Food, Museums & Christmas Lights

Scroll down to content

Just over a week ago I decided to have a ‘me’ day.

My ‘me’ time usually consists of a bubble bath and a face mask, but this time I went all out and had a lovely day out in the city. So here’s a look at what I got up to.

My Day Out

As an avid reader and book lover, I started in the London Review Bookshop as it was highly recommended.

If I’m honest, I prefer a Foyles or even a Waterstones shop but the bookstore did have a cute little cafe where I ate lunch.

As I was being super indecisive about what to get, I chose the vegan lunch combo. The pasta bake wasn’t bad but did have a sweet cinnamony flavour which didn’t totally work. The stew was fine but needed a bit more flavour. That said, it was the type of comfort food that I really needed as it was a freezing cold day.

Just a short walk from the bookstore is one of my favourite museums in London, the British Museum.

Free to enter (although donations are welcome), the museum has over 8 million works to see and is one of the largest collections there is.

The Rosetta Stone, one of the museums most important objects.

With three types of written text on the stone, it helped experts read Egyptian hieroglyphs.

And my favourite part of the museum, the mummies and the process of death and the afterlife.

After spending several hours getting my history fix, it was time to hit the streets to see the Christmas Lights.

The angels on Regent Street.

And Carnaby Street’s very impressive display this year.

In a collaboration with Project ZERO; an ocean conservation charity, all the decorations are recycled, repurposed or made from reusable materials, which I absolutely love.

To end my day, I bought some cupcakes in Planet Organic.

The raspberry one was incredible!

Then swung by Market Hall just off of Oxford Street. A new Paradise Slice stall has opened up and I got an imcredible vegan pizza slice.

The creamy, tofu mozzarella was just perfection.

After a lovely day spent wandering around, it was time to head home!

What’s your favourite places to visit in London?
