Believe it or not I have missed my days in London, I never expected to say this but I have truly missed walking along Southbank, having a drink under the London Bridge and going shopping at Oxford Street. So with the Caledonian Sleeper generously offering a trip to London, I jumped on the opportunity and found myself living in the most central hotel under the London Bridge- the London Bridge Hotel!
Where: London Bridge Hotel
When: April 2017
And when I say that the London Bridge Hotel is in a central location, it cannot get any more central as it is placed in the heart of the City. Say hello to The Shard, our friend standing tall next to the hotel’s entrance.
The London Bridge Hotel definitely made the stay better; if you havent been yet you must! From the Quarter Lounge Bar attached to it-which allowed us to have a lovely afternoon tea experience, to the room views, the Scandi-meets-art decor, the food and drinks…the list just goes on!
The staff was welcoming, homely and always attendative to any requests, e.g my silly questions about where is the closest Pre a Manger and where I can find freshly squeezed orange juice, ironically it was just around the corner.
My room had the best window view over Borough Market and was fully equipped with every necessary thing you might need during your stay in another city. From tea bags and a kettle to ironing board, safe locket, body lotions and hair conditioners, everything was there. Did I mention that all toiletries were from The White Company? Just brilliant!
Look at this view!!!!
The London Bridge Hotel is an independent, 4 star, boutique property, dating back to the Roman Era. Many architectural finds discovered during the hotel’s development can now be found at the Museum of London! Something I was being told the last day of our stay and made me appreciate the building even more!
After checking in, I wanted to explore Borough Market so there it’s where most of the action happened and also along Southbank before ending up at the London Eye. I am so surprised I managed to have such a busy schedule and do everything, even when my feet were ready to giveup I kept going with the same excitement as when I arrived the first day.
Next morning I had a quick shower before getting down at the restaurant for breakfast. I didn’t get many pictures of the breakfast buffet as the lighting was low, however I filmed a lot so hopefully you will get a better idea on my vlog.
As a vegetarian, I always appreciate when there is a veggie version of the traditional English breakfast. Sadly I didn’t find any vegetarian sausages, but the gluten free bake trays and mini treats made up for it! I washed down everything with a cappuccino and two glasses of grapefruit juice before heading back in the madness of the city.
