Layover Life: London, England

This week, I had the pleasure of operating a flight to London, England! There is so much to do in this city, but I decided to use my time visiting an old friend from university.

We met for a quick brunch a Early Bird, a cafe located steps away from Chalk Farm Underground station (on the Northern Line Edgware Branch). They serve fresh sandwiches, salads and really nice breakfast foods. I opted for the ham and cheese panini, which was beautifully presented, freshly made and very tasty. The environment was nice too- laid back and comfortable. These are my favourite types of places to eat!

Afterwards, we ventured to both Primrose Park and Regent’s Park. Primrose Park offers a clear view of central London (visible from Primrose Hill located inside of it) and was full of residents out and about enjoying the warm weather.

Regent’s Park is significantly larger. It is 166 hectares in size, with a wide range of facilities and amenities including gardens, a lake, waterfowl and a boating area, sports pitches, and children’s playgrounds.

We spent the majority of our time in the Avenue Gardens admiring the flowers and  Victorian-style planting.

I didn’t do much more than this, because our layover was only 24 hours and I had to take a nap prior to my flight back to Dubai. I have a feeling that I’ll be back soon though!

If you go: The parks are beautiful but tend to be busy on the weekends. Try to go during the week to avoid the crowds!

Next stop: Mahé, Seychelles!
