London Trip 2015

Last weekend we had a fabulous trip to London. The American Football Team that hubby supports - Miami Dolphins were playing again at Wembley so our trip was centered around that (unfortunately, they lost!) See what we got up to in London last year HERE. Look out for my shopping trip (mainly of the window variety later this week - lots have been added to the wishlist though!)

We stayed at Taj 51 Buckingham Gate and were thrilled to get an upgrade to a two bedroom suite (with two bathrooms!) It also had a kitchen/diner (with nespresso machine) and living room area. It really was a home from home (maybe a bit posher!) and lovely to relax there at the end of the day.

I was absolute made up by this lovely gesture from the hotel. It made me smile LOTS!

On the Thursday we arrived in London we dined again at Adam Handling at Caxton Grill opting this time for the Tasting Menu (with matching wines) which was fabulous.  Below are a few of my favourites:

Nibbles -
Doughnuts, dressed crab
Beetroot, beetroot and more beetroot
Cracker, cured mackerel, yuzu

Apple, dill, sea herbs

Meringue, crumble, milk ice cream

The food was really delicious (although some dishes were the same as last year).

Friday saw us trawling the shops (mainly perfume ones!) and I bought a Jo Loves perfume which I adore. See my review HERE.

On Friday night we caught up with Nardine (@Miss_Nardine) and Sam (@HoneyGo_Lightly) and had a really good catch up and lots of wine!

Saturday saw us head to Maltby Street Market (a bus ride from the centre) and well worth a visit (Sat/Sun). We ate some delicious food and had a cocktail or two.

a super spicy bloody mary and negroni from Little Bird Gin

soap from Stella Says

delicious salt beef on rye at Monty's Deli

yummy cakes at Comptoir Gourmand

Before heading off the the American Football we had a massive room service breakfast at the hotel it set us up for the day!

There was a great atmosphere at the game even although the team didn't win! 

On the way home stopping by Plane Food at Terminal 5 was a must for a delicious Caesar Salad - one of the best I've ever tasted!

Ahh...a great trip can't wait to go back!  What's your favourite things to do when visiting London?
