London | The Cosmopolitan

London is one of the most vibrant  cities I have ever visited. There is always something to do, whatever day of the week or the weekend you visit. From discovering citys attractions or eating at a fancy restaurant, choosing the perfect place can definitely present a challenge.  There are plenty of options to explore. Here is a quick guide of how to spend one day in London.

Tower Bridge London

THINGS TO DO

Visited Tower Bridge Exhibition, open daily  April – September from 10:00 – 17:30 and October – March 09:30 – 17:00. The whole exhibition tour caught my interest. Admired stunning panoramic views from the Walkways, walked across the new glass floor, 42 meters above River Thames, discovered Engine Rooms, that once powered the Tower Bridge  lifts and learnt about engineers and about how the bridge works.

Informative videos, films and panels to explain tower”s history. Staff was friendly and helpful. Normal adult ticket costs £9.80, although if you travel outside London  you can get  a 2 for 1 entry. National Rail tickets are valid, a printed voucher is required per two people, per attraction. One person pays the full adult price and the second person goes free on presentation of each voucher.

WHERE TO EAT

Ordered katsu chicken, noodles, spring roles and beer ginger at the price of  £28. Food was nice but portions were tiny. Lovely atmosphere and views, friendly service @ Dimt.

Have you ever heard of Selfieccino? What about getting  your face printed on your coffee or chocolate?  Visited Tea Terrace restaurant and tea room, which  is situated at House of Fraser, Victoria Street Branch. Impressed by the elegant environment, decorated on white, pastel blue and pastel pink, Victorian style chairs and sofas. Enjoyed a cappuccino,  topped with my face printed in foam.  Cost £6.60.

How Selfieccino is made up? First, you take a photo of your self and send it to the baristas team via what”s up or email.  Your selfie is scanned afterwards and sent to a machine, named “Cino”, 😋 which prints it onto froth. Whole procedure took around five minutes.
