While taking a class at the London School of Economics, I also had the opportunity to visit some fun and unique places around London. There were delicious restaurants, cute coffee shops, and amazing shops that are great to visit.

The Savoy Hotel

The Savoy, Strand, London, United Kingdom

This was an beautiful and comfortable hotel I stayed at a few nights with my parents. The food was delicious and staff was so friendly. They have a little coffee shop as well, with the best scones I had throughout my entire trip!

Meringue Girls

Meringue Girls Ltd, London, United Kingdom

I took a cooking class at this bakery, and it was so much fun!! This small bakery is famous for their meringues (they've made them for fashion week for Chanel) and they offer classes to learn how to create these cute and delicious desserts. The women were so friendly, the baking process was relatively simple, and the results were delicious and so cute! I will definitely make these again in the future.

The Experimental Cocktail Club

Experimental Cocktail Club Chinatown, Gerrard Street, London, United Kingdom

London is known for its cool bars and clubs, but this was definitely my favorite. The theme of this bar is similar to an old speakeasy. It's super secretive and it doesn't have a sign outside of it. After going behind a black door marked with a red X in the middle of London Chinatown, you enter a dimly lit, sleek atmosphere with beautiful cocktails being served all around. The drinks are amazing, and the vibe of the bar makes it an amazing experience.

Fortnum & Mason

Fortnum & Mason, Piccadilly, London, United Kingdom

This is definitely a well-known location in London. They're famous for their scones and chocolate cake and afternoon tea. This is definitely a great place to go if your looking for an authentic London activity.
