London Borough Market and Tower of London Poppies

As I only live about an hour away from London, I get to go there quite often. 

Last Thursday we visited Borough Market, which is permanent food market. It was really lovely there. There were lots of different foods from all over the world. There was also a huge selection of fruit and vegetables, which made the market very colourful. For my lunch I had a BBQ Chicken wrap which was delicious and is included in the pictures below.

We also visited the poppies at the Tower of London which is incredible. It is known as 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' and there are 888,246 handmade ceramic poppies planted in the moat of the tower. Each poppy represents a British military fatality during World War 1. 

I was also lucky enough to go up the Shard which is a skyscraper and has a total of 72 floors. It was so amazing to be able to see so much of London. The weather was a little bit hazy which meant that the view wasn't completely clear but we could still see a lot.

  1. Really although I live in London but unfortunately as busy with writing my dissertation, I never had time to visit this market. I will go there now as it seems a pretty place to go.
