My London tips

By popular demand I gathered some of my favorite places in London (oh and I also updated my Paris tips!):

As usual my first citrytrip tip is: simply walk around. It's my favorite way to discover a city and get a sens of its size, the different areas, the people and the more uncommon areas where you won't cross many tourists. And at the same time you are outside and exercise a bit 😉 Oh and if not: buy yourself an Oyster card and pay as you go.

    1. I really like Shoreditch too, it's vibrant & cool, and new things on every streetcorner, but it's always nice to change a bit, right! Thank you for your kind words, Gudy! Hope you are well! xx

  1. Hi Judith, two friends of mine are going to London so I passed on your great tips. One of them is a graphic designer you know, I am sure she will love most of it. Great post, by the way :-)
    Since I know and think about giving them suggestions I got sooooo nostalgic, so I hope to get to go there soon. In which case I will definitely not miss Ottolenghi's
