There’s just something about London that makes me fall in love with the city every time I go down, this weekend just gone wasn’t any different. I headed down on a sleeper bus on Saturday night to arrive the Sunday morning, which I did. Bright and early, I was in London on Sunday.. 6:45am to be precise to make it even better I couldn’t check into my hotel until 3pm and I forgot England has the Sunday trading law so shops don’t open until 12, definitely not what I needed.
Let’s just say, I went to Buckingham palace twice that day, just to waste some time. Also spent an hour in Primark on Oxford Street not even able to buy anything because from 11am you can only browse until 12. This was definitely the only downside. If I’m honest though, I love just wandering about London, I do it pretty much every time I go down.
The whole reason I was down though, the main reason I always go to London, for a gig of course. I went to see The Midnight Beast in Dingwalls, Camden. First time in Camden and what a nightmare it was trying to find the venue, I headed in the wrong direction at first then luckily realised this, headed in the right direction then walked past the venue in the wrong direction again. It was definitely not my night! I did finally find it though and I had a good night, spent it beside the bar for a change, as usually I’m front row at gigs. It was a different atmosphere obviously but it was good, I really enjoyed it.
Unfortunately my London adventures didn’t go any further, I went back to the hotel that night and got the coach home the next day. If I’m honest though, I don’t care how long I’m down there for, I just love going down at all. Whether it be for an hour, a day or a week. I love every minute.
Currently contemplating going down this Saturday for the day as I’m now off work.. Oh temptation.
