Exploring London // Photos of Camden and Pretty Buildings


If you've followed me for a while you'll know how much I love England. Every time I'm there, I just feel so serene.

I go back quite often, because a lot of my family lives there. However, as they're stationed in the middle of the countryside (possibly my favourite place in the entire world), we rarely spend time in London.

Last summer in June, I spent an extended weekend there. I went with a close friend of mine from across the world, and she had never been to 'northern' Europe before. London had always been a big dream of hers, so of course, we had to do all the typical tourist-y things!

I brought my big camera (thank god), and got some lovely shots! Here are some of my favourites, that I feel best illustrate London, in all its individuality:

Camden is definitely a must-see in London, and just so special. It's eccentric and wonderful, and the thought of it puts me in such a good mood.

One of my favourite shops inside the actual market. I know nothing about vintage cameras, but I still think they're so cool to look at!

 Such a tourist-y thing to do, but here we have the changing of the guard outside Buckingham Palace! Sure, it's a loooooong time to wait for them, but it was such a lovely day that it didn't matter.

I actually don't quite know what this building is, but it was just so typical of London. I love it!

Taken in Camden. As I said, it is certainly unique! 

We stayed in the coolest hostel I've ever seen. You'd think hostels would be boring and dirty (which they usually are) but the architecture and design of this one was so bright and special! It had been painted by design students, so this was the piano!

 Last but not least, here we have the loveliest Charlotte Campbell. I feel like such a fangirl of her sometimes, but she truly deserves it! We were walking down the South Bank, and had to stop just to listen to her beautiful voice! In a way she reminded me of Luna Lovegood, so whimsical and happy, and I couldn't recommend her music more. (Her links: youtube - itunes - twitter)

We spent a day in the Harry Potter Studio Tour, and did two posts about it (both photo-heavy!). Part 1 and Part 2 can be found here.

It was honestly such a lovely trip, and I have so many happy memories. Most of the photos I took were of us, so  I'm obviously not going to share them on here, but trust me, some of them are hanging on my wall!

I have a goal of 100 followers on bloglovin before the 1st of June (I'm currently 3 away), so please follow me on there if you're not already!

  4. This is so lovely! And I love that you love London. I've been quite a lot because I don't live too far away, but because it seems so accessible I haven't done many of the touristy things because we always think we can "just do it next time" haha! I've never actually been on the London Eye, and I must've been about 30 times! It's my absolute fave city though; I love it.

    These are beautiful pictures by the way, and congrats on your 100 followers on bloglovin! I'm so pleased for you!

I can see the tourist thing though, there are so many places around my area here in Norway that I haven't been to, just because I think I'll have loads of time! London eye is such a tourist-y thing to do, but it is incredible! Thank you, I'm so happy!
