London is one of the best cities in the world. Take it from me, I lived there. London has so much to offer, so many neighborhoods to see and will truly take years to fully experience.

Here are the coolest things to do, see, eat in the capital city:

 

DO

Boxpark . . . Visit Boxpark on any given day for cool shops, great bites and an upstairs bar. BP is the ultimate hangout spot in Shoreditch. TIP: Go on Sunday afternoon for "Busk The Box", where you'll hear so many talented musicians. 

Gods Own Junkyard . . . A whimsical art gallery filled with neon signs and cafe all-in-one. Come here for Instagram and Snapchat worthy moments. 

See the changing of guard . . . This is a must-see in London. Yes, thousands of people will be there, but it's worth the crowd. It's truly fascinating. 

Have afternoon Tea . . . It's not a myth that British people love their tea. Having afternoon tea is a fun time to really live like the Brits do. 

London Eye . . . The views from the London Eye will make you fall in love in love with the city. 

Regents Park . . . By far one of the most beautiful, relaxing and less crowded parks in Central London. 

Hyde Park . . .  The famous park is worth the visit. There's so much history and it's beautiful to wander the nearby Kensington gardens.

Explore street art in Shoreditch . . . Shoreditch is the home of cool in London. The street art is even better. Grab drinks at a nearby pub and take a tour of this eclectic neighborhood. 

Shop on Oxford Street . . . Arguably the most crowded street in town. Oxford street has all of your favorite stores and shops. Break out your walking shoes for this one!

Ride a double decker  . . . Buses are the best way to get around while taking in the city sights. Try getting off a couple stops early and walk to your destination. You never know what you'll see or who you'll meet! 

Primrose Hill  . . . This is the best sunset/sunrise in London! Wake up early to catch the beautiful London sun from here. Primrose Hill is the perfect place for a picnic.

The Shard  . . . is London's highest viewing platform. Have drinks and dinner with a view.

Picadilly Circus  . . .Located in Westminister, Picadilly is a huge area with shops and lights. It's reminiscent of NYC's Time Square. Catch street performers and quirky Londoners here. 

EAT

Broadway market . . . Located in the heart of East London, Hackney, Broadway Market is bustling each day with hungry foodies. You can sample almost any food here. TIP: Try a Bread Ahead Doughnut and thank me later. #YouMeLunch

Balans Soho Society . . . The best damn English breakfast in London. They're open until 2 AM. 

Meat Liquor . . . one word: Juicy. The best damn chicken sandwich. Period

Honest Burger . . . A clean-eats type burger, still hearty and delicious. Tip: Order a 'Kona' Big Wave with your Burger. 

Dishoom . . . World-class Indian food that you'll want more of. Their Kings Cross location is inside of an old factory. 

Camden Lock Market . . . An outdoor food market with almost every cuisine you can think of. 

 I miss London with all my heart and I can't wait to get back across the pond.

Get out there and take on the best city in the world head on! Don't forget to tag your adventures: #YouMeLunch #YouMeTravel. 

 

 

You. Me. Lunch. started as a saying between my best friend, Khaila, and I. It's been our way of saying 'see ya later' since we were seven years old. I guess you can say I'm an actual food baby.
