It was my little sister’s 18th birthday this weekend, and as it’s mine next week we headed down to London for a cute little birthday trip!
I don’t think I can remember the last time I went on a train with the whole family, however the journey to Euston was surprisingly fast and we headed into a dreary, rainy London for the weekend. A short tube journey south took us to our Premier Inn in Blackfriars, just north of the river.
Scones, jam and cream were next on the agenda. Despite the rain we headed into the courtyard to take some pictures of the beautiful V&A buildings, crazy that such a grand building was built purposely to be a museum. The V&A was founded in 1852 and is the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design and it actually houses a permanent collection of over 4.5million objects! The puddles and a glimmer of sunlight composed a gorgeous reflection shot, with the red of the building contrasting with the green grass and blue(ish) sky.
We had a meal booked for 7.30pm up in Covent Garden so we took a short ride on the tube to Leicester Square and then negotiated the crowds through the rain towards Covent Garden. I would have loved to take some photos of the food we had at Tuttons, as it was b-e-a-utiful but the lighting just wasn’t good enough.
Pork, salmon and duck was on the menu and we devoured starters, mains and shared a tasty little creme brule for pudding. Rach got excited about her birthday and the waiter was lovely!
