Bank holiday Monday my friend Cheryl & I went to London for the day…
On our ‘to do list’ for the day was Sky Garden, The Shard, a few vino’s & then a meal at Bella Italia in The Strand. We arrived in London just past 11am and we headed to the new area of Kings Cross/St Pancreas, we stumbled across Vinotea, this is a lovely restaurant, light, welcoming industrial space. We looked over the brunch menu and the whole brunch menu sounded delish! We started with a Melon Bellini, and then a posh Sausage Roll and a fried duck egg, and I would have to say the brunch was delish…
After we finished brunch we headed towards Bank on the tube to get to the Sky Garden which we were booked in at 1pm, I’ve seen so many people’s pictures of this place and it looks lovely and its also FREE, yes I said FREE to get in you just need to book a time slot online. You go to the 35th Floor for the and have some amazing views of London, there are frosted silhouettes on the glass to show you what is in the area you are looking out at. Just look at some of the views..
Inside the Sky GardenWe left the Sky Garden just before 3pm as we were booked into the Shard at 3:30pm. There are some great views of London on the 69th & 72nd floor in the Shard, but in my honest opinion I prefer the Sky Garden, as you have places to sit down, the atmosphere was better and its FREE to get in!!
Here are a few pictures from the Shard
Lots of Love
