As much as I love to be submerged in the culture of London and all it has to offer, I also like to break out of the ‘city’ feel and spend my weekends escaping the crush. If I don’t get the chance to take a train elsewhere, or the weather is too miserable to walk in the parks, it’s time to think outside the box. This weekend we escaped upwards, and took a breathtaking trip up the Shard. It’s a great place to go to refresh your love for London, remind you of all its wonder, and to coax yourself out of the city lull. Plus, it’s the best place to take in all of London’s sights in one go, and reminder yourself of all that is still left to see.
If you’re feeling the strains of your own city, why not take a trip upwards and gain a new perspective?
And as the Shard is situated in London Bridge, take a trip to Borough Market afterwards to sample the best food London has to offer. We ate Cornish chilli squid, paella with tiger prawns and drank Sangria.
The perfect Saturday escape.
Go have an adventure!
