The weather was glorious on Saturday in London town and luckily we’d booked to go see Bailey’s Stardust at The National Portrait Gallery, so we had an excuse to get out and about.
Polly suggested the three of us pop to Le Caprice for their Saturday Jazz brunch. The food was lovely, Lexi opting for pancakes with bacon and maple syrup (tad on the small size), Polly had the steak sandwich and I went for the mac ’n’ cheese with Roquefort and mushrooms. Ordered a side of hash browns, which were amazing and of course a glass of white wine.
Then we walked through Leicester Square and finished up at The National Portrait Gallery.
Bailey’s Stardust was a good and lovely seeing how just a simple black and white portrait photo can get across so much personality. There were some great old pictures of people like Mick Jagger looking very, very young back in the early days. Definitely worth a visit.
With the sun shining it seemed far too early to head home, so we decided to give Radio Rooftop bar a try, opposite Somerset House. For some reason a few couples were turned away as they didn’t have any reservations but they let in us 3 which was a nice surprise!
Up the lift we went and it opened up to the big bar and amazing views all the way around.
We were told there weren’t any tables but after getting our drinks we stood outside and very quickly had one of the best tables in the house for us to flop onto.
This ended up being our watering hole for the next 4 hours or so.
It was great catching up with the girls and seeing London go from light to dark, as Polly’s panoramic shots captured so well.
After this we decided the night was still young so headed up to John Salt in Islington for a few more drinks and a change of scenery.
Was a lovely day/night, and nice as none of it was planned and just seeing where the day took us while enjoying the sunshine. Reminds me what a great city London is to live in.
