One week in London, England at Christmas. ✨

Below are some 35mm film (and iPhone) photos from our trip:

We stayed in Camden, which I found to be a fun and exciting experience.
Camden market is absolutely incredible, & there’s some great pubs around as well.

We ate at Young Vegans, a great spot for traditional British pies with vegan fillings + sides. I had the vegan chicken with mashed potatoes and peas, but the mac and cheese was really delicious too.

Borough market, a covered outdoor market next to London Bridge,
is another great place to stop for a bite to eat.

Walking along the Thames River, where you can see Big Ben, Parliament, the
London Eye, Tower Bridge, and all of the other London landmarks.

Exploring the Notting Hill neighborhood,
where the famed Portobello Road and adorable row houses are.

This photo is my dream scenario… that mini cooper!

Exploring Hampstead Heath. One day when I live in London, I want to live
in Hampstead. The streets were quiet, the houses old, and the views wonderful.
First thing you should do when visiting Hampstead is stop in The Alice House.
Best cup of tea (and food) I had the entire trip.

Christmas in London is absolutely magical and everyone should experience it at least once
in their life. Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, Regent
Street, Covent Garden, Christmas tree courtyards, and so so many Christmas markets. <3

Honorable mentions:
1. Gallery Mess in Chelsea for afternoon tea. They also make it veggie upon request.
2. Temple of Seitan in Camden. It’s a vegan wing (& popcorn chicken) spot.
It’s a fun experience and absolutely delicious vegan food.
