London for Paddys

I hope everyone had a wonderful St. Paddy's Day. I spent mine in London on a little holiday with my boyfriend. Having never been to London before it was an amazing experience. I loved it. I loved Camden, Camden Stable Market with its hundreds of tiny shops and food stalls, a Chinese lunch for £3, vintage finds, mini donuts, ostrich burgers (didn't know these existed and definitely didn't eat one) trinkets and horse statues. I loved Madame Tussuad's, the Globe Theatre, The Tate, The National gallery, The Tower Bridge, Pizza Express, The West End (We saw Jerusalem which was hilarious and incredible), The Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum, The Clink, London Bridge, The Tower of London, red buses, little taxis, cupcakes from Harrods, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Statues and cathedrals and parks and fountains, Oyster cards, TGI Fridays bottomless cokes,and red phone boxes. Here's some photos of our trip most taken by my very patient boyfriend.

What are your favourite spots in London? Any secret London treasures?
