Long weekend trip to London, October 2018.

The autumn in London city has already started… If you just have two days to explore London in this time, you should scroll down the post. We have planned out trip because of Vulfpeck gig and besides that we walked around some nice places.

Regent’s Canal

Regent’s Canal offers a lovely walk and canalside living, easily reached from Angel tube. Sometimes it feels like a secret waterway with just you and the wildfowl, but on sunny weekends it’s a sociable route, busy with dogwalkers, canal boats and people on a lazy stroll, wandering through one of the best bits of Islington.

Natural History Museum

Natural History Museum- is a natural history museum that exhibits a vast range of specimens from various segments of natural history. It is one of three major museums on Exhibition Road in South Kensington, the others being the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Shoreditch District

Shoreditch – Situated on the Old Street roundabout in Shoreditch, London, Shoreditch Grind is the first of the Grind’s coffee and espresso bars.

English Restaurant – The English Restaurant is an independent family owned restaurant in the heart of Spitalfields. The olde-English exterior continues into the restaurant, with its wooden bar, wooden tables and chairs, wooden panelled booths and wooden floors. The mixture of tables, both with and without tablecloths add to the ambiance.

“Let’s Adore and Endure Each Other” – One of the landmarks of Shoreditch is the street art scene on the corner of Great Eastern Street and Shoreditch High Street. The ‘Adore and Endure’ wall mural has been a permanent fixture since it was painted in 2010 by the American artist Steve Powers. It is part of his project “A Love Letter to You” which consists of phrases from a love letter painted on exterior walls across London, Philadelphia and New York.
