London Living with an Alternative Twist!

Date Day in London

This weekend we spent our Saturday on a date day in London as for Christmas Mike’s parents bought us a lovely gift of lunch then tickets to visit The View at The Shard, and we finally got time to make the most out of it!

This won’t be a super long boring post, just a few fun pics of what we got up to…

We began our day with cocktails, a three-course meal and Prosecco at Union Street Cafe.

My starter was Burrata, Augergine and Balsamic Vinegar… and I may have licked the plate slightly!


For mains we both went for Homemade Egg Rigatoni with Spicy Sausage…


This was so bloody good. We just about had room left for dessert where we both had Raspberry Sorbet and Yogurt, which again was really good!

After dinner, we popped downstairs to the Union Street Bar where we shared a carafe of wine.


We had such fantastic service throughout but we couldn’t stay any longer as we had our Shard tickets booked.


We hopped into the lift to the 68th floor and grabbed a bevvy…


We then took in the sites…


Took a ton of photos and had a really lovely time up there!

Have you been to The Shard or Union Street Cafe?
