London Bound + City Recommendations

Hey there!

Me and my sister spent a week in London a little while ago and I thought it’d be fun to share some of the things we did and the places we saw with you.

This post is not sponsored, I’m not paid to do this and all the opinions are my own. Just sharing some of my favorite places and vegan restaurants in London with you guys. In case you come up with any questions about anything, leave a comment down below or shoot me with an email, I’m more than happy to hear from you! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thought to go through this in chronological order day by day, as I think that might be clearer to keep up with. Also some of the places are best to visit in a certain day, as they may not be open every day. Make sure to always check the valid opening hours from official websites as they may change or have exceptions!

CAMDEN LOCK MARKET, Camden Town
www.camdenlockmarket.com

Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 8AH

If you are a hopeless market enthusiast like me, whose lifegoal is literally to get to go markets like these every weekend for the rest of her life, this is definitely the place to visit. Full of different kind of crafts and jewellery, clothing, food etc. stalls, we easily spent the whole Saturday afternoon wandering and wondering around. There’s also a wide selection of DELICIOUS vegan street food available, which I highly recommend to try. Several times.

Best day to visit Camden Lock is definitely Saturday as that is the main market day.

Sunday, June 12th

BOXPARK and BRICKLANE SUNDAY MARKET, Shoreditch
www.boxpark.co.uk

2-10 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6GY

Shoreditch is the heart of East London, it’s like the coolest city area I’ve ever been to. Boxpark is a pop-up based market place full of fashion and lifestyle showrooms, boutiques and shops, food, drinks and events. And the Bricklane Sunday market starts right from the corner.

There’s also a huge selection of vegan street food available in the Shoreditch area. However I’d definitely recommend you to visit Cook Daily London for insanely delicious buddha bowls (and STEAMED PLANTAIN CHIPS!). You won’t regret it. The best decision of your life. Open every day.

There’s also a great possibility you can enjoy awesome live music while eating ๐ŸŽถ

COLUMBIA ROAD FLOWER MARKET

Columbia Rd, London E2 7RG

Flowers. Visit for incredibly stunning sea of flowers. Open only on Sundays.

Monday, June 13th

WILD FOOD CAFE, Neal’s Yard
www.wildfoodcafe.com

14 Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden,  London WC2H 9DP

The home of raw-centric vegan/vegetarian food,Wild Food Cafe is a cute eatery located in the magical Neal’s Yard. The staff was super sweet and lovely and made our visit by far one of the best restaurant experiences ever. Not to forget the food, which I don’t even have words to describe. Heaven.

YORICA! MOMENTS, Wardour Street
www.yorica.com

130 Wardour St, London W1F 8ZN

Free-from ice creams, shakes and fro-yo. All vegan, free from gluten, dairy, nuts and eggs. You can choose your portion size, ice cream flavor and all the toppings of preference. We went for the coconut fro-yo. Almost did it twice in a row. I think that sums it up.

Tuesday, June 14th

SKY GARDEN,  20 Fenchurch Street
www.skygarden.london

1 Sky Garden Walk, London EC3M 8AF

A garden up in the sky. Like a tropical forest and pop of green in the middle of the busiest city area with a spectacular 360-view over London. There are cafes, bars and restaurants too but we only enjoyed two soy cappuccinos, so can’t really tell if there’re any vegan options available in the menu. But the view and garden are definitely worth a visit. You can go without booked visit and the garden is open for public for free. Though I’d recommend to go pretty early if you wish to avoid the rush hour (and take pictures without ten other tourists in the same picture).

26 GRAINS, Neal’s Yard
www.26grains.com

2 Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden, Seven Dials, London, WC2H 9DP

’26 grains is all about bringing you wholesome grain based dishes.’

With menu full of all the good things from sweet porridges to creamy oat mylk lattes and savoury grain dishes, this place is heaven especially for us breakfast enthusiasts. The cutest spot is located in the same magical Neal’s Yard as the wild food cafe and is definitely worth a visit! We tried the coconut cacao porridge with matcha ice cream, nordic spice porridge, quinoa slice, oat mylk matcha latte and berry smoothie – all super duper delicious!

There is a great selection of vegan dishes and drinks available, however some portions contain dairy and eggs, ask the friendly staff for more details. ๐Ÿ™‚

PORTOBELLO ROAD MARKET, Notting Hill
www.portobelloroad.co.uk

65 Portobello Rd, London W11 2QB

For cute little antique stores, book shops, handmade jewellery, vintage clothes, cafes, bakeries and lots of fresh fruits and veggies, Portobello Road Market is the place. Though Saturday is the ‘main day’, this beautiful market and the shops are open every day.

Wednesday was also our last full day in London but maybe the one we were the most excited about since we got one cool-ass thing out of our bucketlist.
