London Trip

I've just got back from a fantastic weekend in London, catching up with a friend who was also visiting the capital. I stayed at the Grange St. Paul's Hotel, which was an excellent base to enjoy the restaurants, nightlife and shopping. It has a fabulous rooftop bar, where we enjoyed a champagne cocktail and took in the impressive views of some of the famous landmarks:
The Shard
The Walkie-Talkie
The Gherkin and The Leadenhall Building
I love the mixture of old and new architecture; London is such a vibrant and exciting city, and it can feel quite exhilarating to visit the city when you're a country girl at heart.

St. Paul's Cathedral is such a beautiful building; I literally stopped in the street and said "wow!"
We saw a bride & groom having their photos taken, and it was difficult to tell if they'd actually just got married, or if it was a photo shoot for a wedding magazine. The bride had quite an entourage, and she looked like a real-life princess against the dramatic backdrop of St. Paul's.

Another highlight for me was the beautiful white and purple wisteria at St. Paul's. Clusters of the gorgeous scented flowers tumbled over the railings outside the cathedral:
We just had to stop for a photo!
May is such a lovely time of year to visit London; it's not too cold and it's less likely to rain, so you really get to enjoy all the sights and make the most of the longer days.  

I hope you've enjoyed the photos! Thank you for reading, Angharad x


  1. Wow, such lovely photos, beautiful! I've never visited London before, but of course it's on my must travel list!

  2. I love this part of London! My head office is just up from there and I always try and duck off during my lunch break to drink in some of the gorgeous sights. However I've never been when the wisteria is out, must pay a visit this summer! As always your photos are just beautiful :)
