Blogger Bucket List: Travel Edition featuring Stacee from Adventures of a Book Junkie

I’m sad to say that it’s the last day of my Blogger Bucket List feature.  It’s been another amazing week of guest bloggers sharing their ultimate travel bucket lists, and today we’re going out with a bang! I’m welcoming Stacee from Adventures of a Book Junkie today and she is sharing some of her favorite London spots. It just so happens that London is on MY travel bucket list, so I was thrilled to see so many fabulous suggestions from Stacee. Do me a  favor and make sure you stop by her personal Instagram to check out some of her recent photos from San Diego Comic Con and Disneyland, and also her bookish Instagram for some seriously gorgeous photos!

 When Sarah invited me to do a guest post for her blog while she travels, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. At first I thought about doing a bookstore bucket list, then I was going to do a bucket list of places I want to see, but somehow I just kept coming back to London.

It is my favorite place in the world {so far} and I figured why not highlight some of my favorite places/things to see in the city.

Cafe in the Crypt

This is the number one thing I tell people to go to when they say they’re going to London. And yes, it’s exactly what the title says it is. It has excellent tea and even better ambiance. I loved that the entrance we went into was a tiny little glass booth that descended into an expansive and gorgeous cafe. The floor is literal gravestones and that might not be for some people, but did I mention the tasty tea?

Big Ben

This might be one of the most iconic things about London and when we finally got to it, I think I stood across the street staring at it for about 10 minutes before I could move on. And even then, I would walk a bit and then turn around and stare. I just couldn’t believe that I had finally made it to London. Amusingly enough, while I was looking up photos and such for this post, I found out that there are normally tours available. They’ve been suspended until 2020 because the tower is going through refurbishment.

The Globe Theatre

The second time we went to London, I was set on making it to The Globe. I wanted to see a show so badly, but the day we were there, they were sold out. We did take the tour and we were able to take photos near the stage. They have all sorts of displays and yeah, it’s just gorgeous.

Piccadilly Circus

We went to Piccadilly at night and I was mesmerized. I’ve been in big cities and in large crowds {SDCC, I’m looking at you}, but nothing like this. It’s estimated that 500k people pass through Piccadilly every day. SDCC is 125k a day, so yeah… There’s a fountain in the middle of the road and it provides some of the best people watching ever.

Trafalgar Square

Hubs picked this one because I could have made this list go on forever. He loved the area because it’s historical. I loved it because the architecture is gorgeous and not only does it have an open courtyard to spend time in, it also has the National Gallery.

If you’re looking for more reasons to visit London, here’s a pretty comprehensive list of where to go. I think next time we’ll be looking at more off the path places, but for now, these work.

Huge thanks to Sarah for the invite!
