London Travel Tips from Random Photographs


Canterbury, England

While “spring cleaning”  my desktop files, I found a series of random photographs from my last visit to my sister Yanna in London. They include our daily ritual- a giant cappuccino at Costa Coffee, a day-trip to Canterbury, a visit to the Royal Academy and an unforgettable dinner at Balthazar restaurant in Covent Garden. They were the inspiration for 7 interesting London travel tips.

You can also read my other London travel tips article here if you are planning a visit.

I was trying out my new Nikon Lens every chance I got and when I didn’t have my camera I used my iPhone.

London Travel Tips:

5. Plan a day trip to Canterbury. It is very near with the train and if you have already been to Bath, which is my favorite, it is a nice alternative.

6. Visit the Victoria and Albert Museum

It is the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 million objects. It was founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

I am sure you will love the V&A art shop, too.

7. If you like French cuisine and trendy crowds you will enjoy Balthazar in London. The famous traditional brasserie in Covent Garden is worth every penny.
