For my spring break in 2015, I decided to go to London and explore one of the cities I had at the top of my travel list. Of course this city is filled with some amazing, historical and popular landmarks that everyone know about, but this guide includes some of my favorite spots for shopping, food and of course the famous spots from movies and music.
If you are going to be travelling to London, I highly recommend that you check out a few of these places!

15) Theres a lot of Shakespeare stuff over here, if you’re a fan it might be nice to check out.
16) Borough Market: Cool market place with lots of little food vendors, go a little earlier in the day (around noon), there were a lot of booths that weren’t open when we went in the late afternoon.
17) King’s Cross Station holds the Harry Potter photo area where you can experience running through platform 9 3/4.
