London Day 3 | Regent’s Park, Hyde Park and Abbey Road2 min read

Baker Street Station

I’m back with day 3, my final day, in London! The first stop was Regent’s Park. I can imagine how beautiful it would be to sit out here and read a book or just chill and people-watch on a lovely, sunny day. You can also rent little pedal-boats, which reminded me of the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park in New York!

I ran into some furry little friends in the park. They were so cute!

I loved how he was just hanging out eating his food while laying vertically on the tree!

We headed back to the underground to go to Hyde Park. I guess I enjoy taking photos of tube stations haha.. But I really just can’t get over how clean they are! For such a big city, I would not expect them to be like this! It was definitely a pleasant surprise.

We strolled down Kensington Palace Gardens, which is the most beautiful street, lined with huge embassies on both sides. Randomly, there happened to be an open house in the Slovakian Embassy so we decided to pop in! I can’t say there was anything too exciting happening in there though!

There was also party on in the gardens of Kensington Palace (where Kate and William live).. But unfortunately I didn’t spot either of them!

We had the option to go inside and do the tour of Kensington Palace but neither of us were too interested so we just walked around the grounds and then through Hyde Park.

I couldn’t walk down Abbey Road without taking a picture of the famous Abbey Road Studios and the crossing! I passed the crossing so many times, and there were constantly people taking photos on it! It’s funny to think that The Beatles could make a regular street crossing such a popular attraction!

The weekend went by so fast.. a lot faster than these posts make it seem haha! It was so much fun, and great catching up with my bestie! The next day was not so fun -I left the apartment at 4am to catch a bus to Stansted, arrived home to Cork, and grabbed my stuff to spend the rest of the day college!

If you missed the rest of my weekend in London, you can catch up here.

 

Thanks for reading 🙂

    Cool place. I’ve always wanted to go to London, but wasn’t sure what exactly to visit on my trip, so this was very helpful.

    I’m glad you’re enjoying yourself. 🙂

    This makes me “home”sick for London, in definitely a good way. I lived in the Bayswater neighborhood for about six months after college, and regularly walked through Hyde Park, past the embassies, too High Street Kensington, where I worked.

    I loved visiting both of those parks when I was in London! It makes you feel like you’re almost out of the city!
