A Day Out In London – Soho

a day out in soho

Going on day outs in my own home city, London, has always been one of my favourites. Whether it’s staying in hotels in Soho or trailing a popular food joint in Covent Garden - even since moving away (albeit not that far) and working in London, I am still amazed at all the hidden little treasures you can find, be it a nice hotel, a restaurant or a cute little shop.

In today’s post, I am taking you on a little ‘day out with me’, exploring more of Soho and just seeing what we come across……

I live in Kent, so it takes me roughly, around an hour to get in to Central London and within a short walk from Charing Cross, I am already in the heart of Soho. Taking two friends along with me, we opted to stop for some lunch, after much deliberation (since there was so much choice), we settled for some sushi at Eat Tokyo. If you’re looking for a cosy place, with good, affordable food, then I would definitely recommend Eat Tokyo – I mean, just look at the portion of Katsu Curry. Other restaurants we deliberated over included Patty & Bun, Bun House and The Ivy which I’m sure I’ll head back to try another day.

After lunch, we wondered around the neighbourhood, came across some lovely little Instagram spots for outfit pics (cue all fashion bloggers, you need visit Soho for shoots, it’s so cool) and if you didn’t already know, Soho houses two of the most popular theatre shows, Harry Potter and Aladdin which I would love to watch one day.

As if the huge lunch we had wasn’t enough, we all secretly saved some space for desserts and we stumbled across Amorino, which I had tried once before in Tenerife, but not in London, so that means it’s a new experience right? Amorino is famous for their rose carved ice creams and of course, we all opted for one each with three flavours. I can confirm that they taste as good as they look and as well as ice creams, they also served cakes and teas/coffees too.

Moving in to the evening, there are bars galore in Soho, so you won’t be short of finding a nice, little place for a good tipple or two which is always handy after a long day of exploring (and shopping). I actually love meeting friends in Soho because it’s always so lively and there’s plenty of choices which definitely pleases everyone.

And just like that, my day exploring Soho is over. I had a great day and can’t wait to do it all over again at a different spot in London.

    It must be lovely living so close to London, but also far enough away haha! I love visiting London – the city is one of my favourite places and it’s such a cool and fun place to go. Loving all of your photos – sounds like you had a fab day 🙂 xx
