London Photo Diary





London is a wonderful, bustling city full of all types of people; from high-end businessmen to tourists with SLR cameras slung around their necks. I had the privilege to go to London for two days with my friends, we spent the days watching performances in the theatre, shopping in Covent Garden and perusing through various art galleries. 

At the theatre, we were lucky enough to get tickets to watch Shrek and War Horse; I personally would have preferred to watch Woman in Black, but unfortunately, we couldn't get hold of tickets. Nevertheless, both performances were riveting and well worth the watch! If you're planning a trip to the theatre any time soon, I would highly recommend you watch these performances. Covent Garden is one of the most iconic areas of London, and if you've ever been there, you'd understand why! Covent Garden is full to the brim with live music, lots of food and independent retailers. I bought a handmade jasmine and rose perfume for my mother from a little stall which sold handmade and vintage perfumes; definitely the kind of place you'd love to go again and again. Visiting the art galleries in London was possibly my favourite part of the trip; at the National Portrait Gallery I was able to view the most iconic portraits from the Tudor era - a mesmerising opportunity. My favourite author at the moment is Philippa Gregory, and I have become so obsessed with her Tudor Court novels and the Tudor period in general, that I made sure I packed in some time to view the symbolic portraits of our previous kings and queens.

Of course, a trip to London without seeing Big Ben or the Houses of Parliament is practically impossible! We had an excellent time taking the mandatory pilgrimage to the staple areas of London. London is definitely worth the visit, it's one of the most iconic cities of the world and millions flock to London every month to see the city in all its glory.
Thanks to Hunaiza for taking the photos!

Love from,

Miss Iffa

  49. Hello! Thank you for your absolutely lovely comment over on my blog, it was really sweet and a joy to read, as was this post. Your trip to London sounds amazing! Unfortunately it's 24 hours by plane for me to London, so won't be happening any time soon. However, I have been 3 times before when I lived in Ireland and absolutely loved the city. The perfume you got sounds so interesting, I've never heard of anything like it! And I am a fellow theatre lover, and very jealous of the two shows you saw. Great photography too :D
