A Day In London

After a slow start to the morning, Jon dropped us off at Arnos Grove and we took the underground to Covent Gardens. At the market we bought macarons at Laduree, citron for Dave and chocolat orange corse for me. There was a string quartet playing in the food hall which we listened to for a bit before going to Cotswold to collect Dave’s shoes. 

We then went to Turnham Green and had very expensive espressi at Hack & Veldt before heading for Fullers Brewery. 

We walked around the Hock Cellar which was used as an aid raid shelter in WWII and is now a showcase for the brewery and a trading room. They’ve been in existence as a brewery since 1654 and it was very interesting reading the timeline. 

We walked along the Thames and stopped for lunch at The Old Ship. 

We had a half pint each, Young’s bitter for Dave and Hiver Honey beer for me. We both had the broccoli and Stilton soup for lunch but Dave added a half roast chicken sandwich and salad option to his. 

We walked to Ravenscourt Park station and caught the underground to Earl’s Court where we changed lines for Nottinghill. We walked down to Portobello market and had espressi at Garnier. 

We bought olives at the market to take to Cara and carcioffi for us to eat tomorrow as part of our supper. At Blanche Eatery we got a pasteis de natas to share and then walked to Ladbroke Grove station. At Euston Square we got off, walked to Euston station and caught the overground to Bushey. 

Adam fetched us from the station and I got some kiddy cuddles from Noa before they went to bed. We had a wonderful evening with Cara and Adam, including a really delicious meal. Adam brought us back to East Barnet and by the time we got here, everyone was asleep.
