Places I want to visit – London and beyond

Richmond - River Thames

This list of places to visit was originally jotted down last year but as I’ve obviously not ticked everything off yet, I’m going to carry on working through it and adding to it for 2017!

There are restaurants, experiences and activities in no particular order and I will link to those I visit and blog about as I go along.

Of the ones I’ve ticked off, please do leave a comment or give me a shout on Facebook or Twitter if you’d like me to blog about them or if you’d like my full opinion.

Let me know if there are any that you’ve been to visit and liked or any you think aren’t worth wasting my time on!

    This is great! I have my own bucket list of things and places that I want to go to and experience! it’s interesting to see what’s on other people’s lists! I can see that you want to go to Edinburgh – I went there last summer and it was one of the best holidays I’ve ever had! If you ever go go in the summer and make sure to see the military tattoo. It’s on every night in Edinburgh castle and it’s full of music, marching, performances etc!

    I love this! Definitely going to save this post to my favourites – you have so many food places on here I want to visit too.

    Flip and Dip – wanted to visit for so long now!
    Dishoom – attempted to go to the Kings Cross branch last week but the wait time was too long!
    Dirty burger – there’s one by my boyfriend’s in Vauxhall and keep meaning to go!

    One other place that’s on my list is Shake Shack – heard so many good things!

      I’m gonna keep adding to it as well. When I see new restaurants I always have to do a bit of research.

      I tried Shake Shack for lunch and tried the chicken burger. It was really small, no flavour and average. The beef ones looked okay but I was disappointed. I also don’t like Milkshake!
