Here is the recipe for a perfect (for us) day in London:
8-10am: Wake up, have a shower and enjoy a good breakfast before braving the cold.
12ish: Walk to Highgate Cemetery and visit either the East (newer) Cemetary or the older West one.
2pm: Walk down hill (yay!) to Archway tube station and take the tube to Charing Cross. Buy some plasters and put them on your sore heels and walk towards St James’s Park. Walk around the park and up towards Buckingham Palace on your Way to Green Park and Piccadilly. Walk to the large Waterstones and the top floor bar, the 5th View. Order some cocktails (a minimum of two) and enjoy the afternoon with your lovely friends.
6.30pm: Settle the bill and pop into Fortnum’s to buy a nice bottle of wine. Go home and change into stretchy trousers.
7.30pm: Have a glass of champagne and snack on some lovely nibbles while preparing dinner.
9pm: Move over to the sofa and stretch out and enjoy another glass of wine.
