London Part 2: London At Night


One of my favorite things about being in London was wandering around at night. All of the lights make it look extra beautiful and even when there are a lot of people around, it somehow still seems peaceful. We spent a lot of nights walking around the Leicester Square area, which turned into our go-to spot for getting food after a night out (specifically a noodle stand called Wok To Wok and a place next door with really good falafel). We also made a bit of a habit out of getting ice cream at Haagen-Dazs even when it was cold outside.

We also spent a good amount of time on Oxford Street & Carnaby Street, both of which have amazing shopping that I didn't quite take enough advantage of. We ate at a couple restaurants in that area as well - Wagamama and Spaghetti House - and I would definitely recommend both. These photos are from all of the places I just mentioned as well as a couple from Chinatown, which we randomly wandered over to one night and I thought the decorations were really nice.

  1. This is so dope. I want to visit London, and I feel like I should starting planning the trip sooner than later. You take such cool shots, it just makes London look so mystical. Chinatown looks amazing, I would imagine you could spend all day there.

    1. Thanks! I didn't explore Chinatown much but it seemed really cool & was always busy even late at night on a weekday. You should definitely plan a trip, I'm already thinking about when I can go back!

  15. London looks like a blast and it's so pretty at night. Haven't had the chance to visit, but it's definitely on my list. I love how bright everything is, and the lanterns and lights in the street look so cute. It seems like the city has a really vibrant night life. The food sound amzing too, lots of variety! Thanks for taking me to London for a couple of minutes, I enjoyed the ride :)
