Beatlemania

London is such an active city! There is so much to do, so much to see and so much to eat! By a happy coincidence we had some friends who were in London at the same time as us and we arranged to meet up.

One of the great things about the Tube is it comes so frequently! We jumped on and made one of the most iconic of London treks: the Pilgrimage to Abbey Road.

It must take a certain amount of patience to live in St John’s Wood! Of the heap of photos we took, this one was the best!

Abbey Road

Not too far off the real thing, right?

The walls surrounding the studio where the Beatles recorded their Abbey Album are repainted every year because legitimately thousands of fans leave their own tributes to the Fab Four.

Having risked our lives playing chicken with cars, we’d certainly built up an appetite. But where to go for lunch? Why, back to Borough Markets, of course!

Via the Millennium Bridge, which you may recognise from the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie. If you look closely, you can see just how excited Moya is…

I also couldn’t resist another photo of the Globe.

Having had our fangirl fill and with the rumbling in our tummies driving us on, we made our way back to Borough Markets.

I couldn’t leave London without having a pie and mushy peas, it wouldn’t seem right! And I definitely wasn’t disappoint by Pie Minister, just look at how delicious and creamy that filling is! All their meat is 100% British and 100% free range, so you can have your pie without the side of guilt!

Topped off with some fresh cherries, we willed away the afternoon in the shade, eating, drinking and being merry!
