London Travel Guide

Where We Stayed

The Royal Horseguards Hotel

My cousin had stayed here before and loved it, so we stayed here on our visit. I always recommend checking AirBnb for unique places with sometimes great locations and prices!


Where We Ate

Dishoom - A great place if you like Indian food! I recommend doing an early dinner, as the line can get very long the later you wait.

Abuelo - Great brunch/cafe spot. I had eggs Benedict!

Slice - Delicious and big slices of pizza! You can eat it there, or take it to go and eat in the courtyard (the wait to sit was super long so this is what we did, and we loved it!)

Grind - Breakfast/Coffee shop, I ordered their Acai Bowl!

Saint Aymes - All time favorite coffee shop. Read more about it in this post!

Jacob the Angel - Another amazing spot for coffee and breakfast, located just a few doors down from Slice, the aforementioned pizza place! Their homemade jam is fantastic!
