London Calling!

A day out in London with Sn-ap



Did you know you can get from Leicester to London for as little as £3?! Sn-ap recently launched their services from Leicester to the capital and I was beyond excited to explore more of one of my favourite cities! London is just a short 2 hour journey away yet I haven't had the chance to explore it all, if that even is a possibility. Every visit involves something new and exciting and thanks to Sn-ap, I was able to discover more of the capital city.

Sn-ap is a new “on-demand” coach service, that offers very inexpensive journeys to and from various cities. I met the CEO, Thomas, at the Leicester launch which took place in the Highcross and he explained how customers are the core of his business and that they really are trying to change the experience and stereotypes of coach travel. The coaches aren't just any old thing, they are luxury coaches that often get used for sports teams and ski trips. As they aren't in use all of the time, Sn-ap use them for cheap coach trips between places like Leicester to London.

FOOD 





We started the day off right: FOOD. We went to Camden Market to explore the quirky shops, abundance of street art and of course, the food stalls! There was so much choice when it came to food... imagine all of the worlds' cuisines under one roof. All of the doughnuts, ice-cream and drinks stands. Camden is also home to Oli Baba's - the place to get halloumi fries. I was feeling more than just fries so I went for a delicious falafel pitta (which was actually vegan!). There's something for everyone at Camden, definitely a place to visit if you are heading to London.






Jumping to dinner, we booked a table at P F Chang's, an asian restaurant we had visited on our travels in Abu Dhabi. The food was great, we had ordered the Dynamite Shrimp, Singapore Style Noodles, Mongolian Beef and Stir Fried Rice. Although the food doesn't taste exactly the same as it did abroad (I think Abu Dhabi has a higher quality of food and presentation compared to the UK), it was still yum!

SIGHTSEEING

Obviously there are plenty of things to do when it comes to sightseeing. You can visit The London Eye, Madame Tussauds, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Leicester Square, Hyde Park... the list goes on and on.

We decided to have a little stroll around the River Thames, as the weather was so glorious. South Bank is filled with more food places as well as entertainment. There are so many street entertainers that you can spend hours watching!

Areas like Notting Hill, Mayfair and Covent Garden are some of my favourite spots to visit when I'm in London. They are so full of life, character and each have their own personality and vibe.

I've blogged about a London visit previously, which you can have a read of here, but if I were to go again (which I no doubt will since it is so cheap to travel with Sn-ap) where else should I go?

OUTFIT

As it was a whopping 30+ degrees in London last weekend, I wanted to wear something that looked cool yet kept me cool. I am still feeling the holiday vibes so I went for this lovely palm print jumpsuit that has really nice little details including the tie waist. You can also use the waistband as a hairband, which I'm definitely going to try!

My sister kindly gifted this to me and I was very excited and so surprised that this jumpsuit was actually from Primark. I mean, I shouldn't be surprised because most of my wardrobe is Primark, but this just really shocked me - in a good way of course. It is such a steal and should still be available as it was a recent purchase.



This trip was kindly gifted to me by Sn-ap
