This Sunday The Culture trip, together with Michelle – one of the loveliest Instagrammers out there – organised a festive themed walk around Mayfair and Marylebone. Early Sundays mornings are a great time to march around London. Shops open late, which means almost no tourists, clear shop fronts and empty-ish streets. I also got the chance to meet some other lovely ladies, whose feeds I have been following for ages and never met in person.
My favourite Instagrammers and their magical feeds:
Who are The Culture Trip?
The Culture trip is a great media start up, which showcases cities all over the world. Their content is created by some pretty cool and passionate people. They really love to talk about their cities, things to do and places to visit. I love the site, as it is clean and simple to navigate. I find a lot of other website that share a similar concept to The Culture Trip, are a little bit more clunky and over crowded. Head off and check it out, you can find some cool Christmas ideas – especially in the Food section.
Back to the walk now, and London’s festive spirit which has no end. As I mentioned in my previous Christmas post – there are few places that can compete with London and its festive beauty. I am going to take you on a tour of some showstoppers on our way.
The little corner pub – Coach and Horses
Fire Brigade Station
Paul Rothe and Son
Yumchaa Tottenham street:
At the end, the cherry on the cake was our visit to Yumchaa. I cannot believe I have never been to this place before. It is fabulous. The interior details – the chairs, the wallpaper and the teas. I absolutely fell in love. They have cakes, pastries and more cakes and pastries. There are vegan options as well, if you fancy them. Their tea collection is impressive, over 40 blends. lined up in small bottles on the counter, we could choose the infusions for our teas. I am a coffee person though, so they made me the yummiest latte ever. If you love the products the cool thing is that they sell them as gifts, already wrapped up and ready for you take home.
It was an absolutely fantastic day, and you should definitely try the route yourself on an early Sunday morning.
Here are some behind the scenes, as it is a little bit of fun and games:
