Blogmas Day 4: Adventures in London

It’s Blogmas day 4 of my 12 days of Christmas!

Last Christmas, we were gifted a couple of Red Letter Days experiences – afternoon tea at Marco’s New York Italian, London Bridge and a trip up the Shard! Yesterday we went on an adventure to London to use those experiences and I thought I’d share some of my day with you.

If you haven’t already seen on my Instagram stories, it was the first stormy day in weeks. It was pouring with rain and very windy but we didn’t let that stop our little adventure!

I’m not great with heights especially if the walls are clear glass and I can see straight down. So I spent a lot of my time at the Shard trying not to panic but aside from this, the views were great!

We took a little walk around the Christmas market by the river and stopped off for hot chocolate in Hay’s Galleria.

The sun came out for a little while so we took a walk along the river and enjoyed the sights!

We ended our day with afternoon tea at Marco’s New York Italian! We enjoyed lots of English tea, delicious sandwiches, bruschetta, warm scones, lemon tarts and brownies!

It was a longgggg day and we did around 17,300 steps so I am exhausted today. I’ve spent the day Christmas shopping online (I am getting very behind with my shopping!) but I might drag myself off the sofa to bake my first mince pies of the year!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the first week of December!
