Shopping Trip to London in 30 hours? It鈥檚 possible!

A quick shopping trip for someone with a fast lifestyle is just like winning a lottery ticket! Especially when you feel like your wardrobe is empty and the terrible sensation of having nothing to wear strikes again. Nowadays the availability of flying to different countries of the world is so big, that going to any place you want is no longer an issue. One of those certainly is London, a place I’ve always wanted to visit, but never actually had the occasion to do so.

One day we just came up with a crazy idea of going on a quick shopping trip to London and back and the way from the plan to the realization was very short! The whole organization and logistics of our flights, accomodation and everything was as always the job of Milena (You can read how she plans our trips HERE), so the moment we agreed on the date when we would both be free, she started organizing the super quick trip to this amazing British city. We were very lucky to find the flights from LUZ Lublin Airport which meant that we literally needed as much time to get there as we would need to the city center – without having to travel to Warsaw or so. On our way to London our luggage was ALMOST EMPTY! My bag was, no joke, weighing less than 6kg! We only brought 2 clothes changes, cosmetics, makeup and that’s it!

What exactly happened on our weekend trip:

Day 1

14:00 Arrival to London Stansted

16:00 Hotel Check In

17:00 Lunch

18:30 Shopping in Primark (Mayfair)

21:00 Dinner and comeback to the hotel

22:00 Night out for some drinks

Day 2

8:00 Waking up! No time to sleep on a short trip!

9:30 Breakfast at one of the most beautiful restaurants I’ve ever had the pleasure to be in! (and I’m very picky). I will write a separate post about it with all the details, design and food, because it literally amazed me!

11:00 Trip to the Buckingham Palace – it was one of the most important places we wanted to visit. Unfortunately Big Ben was under maintainance, which meant we couldn’t see it… So we opted for Buckingham Palace only 馃彌

13:00- 20:00 Second attempt to shopping at Oxford Street (Primark, Forever21, Topshop, Next, Marks & Spencer, New Look, River Island, but also many more such as Zara, Gap, H&M, Disney etc. It’s also nice to step into Selfridges, House of Fraser or Debenhams)

20:00 Dinner

24:00 On our way back to the airport

As our main mean of transport in London we used the Uber App, because there was not enough time to go through the initial confusion of using the London underground. If we would have stayed more, we would have used it.

A quick shopping trip to London is not one of the cheapest forms of shopping, but we haven’t had such a good time, seen so many beautiful things, had the possibility to visit another city, bought so many amazing things (over 20kg !! of bought things PER PERSON!) and had so much fun in a while now! I definitely recommend stealing your best friend for such a weekend of fun!

Zakupy w Londynie w 30 godzin? To mo偶liwe!

Szybki wypad na zakupy, przy jeszcze szybszym trybie 偶ycia jest jak wygrana w loterii! Zw艂aszcza wtedy, kiedy szafa wieje pustkami, a ja jak zwykle nie mam co na siebie za艂o偶y膰 nast臋pnego dnia do pracy.Dost臋pno艣膰 lot贸w do r贸偶nych kraj贸w 艣wiata jest tak du偶a, 偶e nie ma problemu z dostaniem si臋 do miejsca na kt贸re mamy aktualnie ochot臋. Jednym z nich jest Londyn, do kt贸rego zawsze chcia艂am polecie膰, ale jako艣 nie by艂o okazji.

Dlatego te偶 wymy艣lone na poczekaniu szybkie zakupy w Londynie od razu sprawi艂y, 偶e zacz臋艂y艣my je realizowa膰! Organizacja ca艂ego lotu i naszej logistyki nale偶a艂a jak zwykle do Mileny (W jaki spos贸b Milena planuje nasze wyjazdy przeczytacie w po艣cie – LINK), dlatego te偶 kiedy ustali艂y艣my wsp贸lny wolny weekend wybra艂y艣my si臋 na super zakupy do angielskiej stolicy. Fantastycznie, 偶e lecia艂y艣my z lotniska w 艢widniku, wi臋c mia艂y艣my bardzo blisko i nie trzeba by艂o doje偶d偶a膰 do odleg艂ych miast. Do Londynu polecia艂y艣my praktycznie z pust膮 walizk膮, moja nie wa偶y艂a nawet 6 kg! Zabra艂y艣my tylko potrzebne rzeczy do przebrania, kilka kosmetyk贸w i ot(!)ca艂e pakowanie.

Przebieg wizyty w Londynie:

Dzie艅 1.

14:00 Przylot do Londynu

16:00 Zameldowanie w hotelu

17:00 Obiad w pobliskiej restauracji

18:30 Shopping w primarku (Mayfair)

21:00 Kolacja i powr贸t do hotelu

22:00 Wyj艣cie na drinka

Dzie艅 2.

8:00 Pobudka, przygotowanie do wyj艣cia

9:30 艢niadanie w jednej z najwspanialszych restauracji w jakiej mia艂am mo偶liwo艣膰 przybywa膰! A jestem bardzo wybredna (o tej restauracji napisz臋 osobnego posta, poniewa偶 by艂a tak pi臋kna i by艂o tam tak pyszne jedzenie, 偶e musz臋 Wam o tym wszystkim opowiedzie niebawem).

11:00 Pojecha艂y艣my pod Pa艂ac Buckingham, 偶eby zobaczy膰 jak wygl膮da, poniewa偶 nigdy wcze艣niej nie mia艂y艣my okazji go zobaczy膰.

13:00- 20:00 Kolejne zakupy na Oxford street (Primark, Forever21, Topshop, Next, Marks & Spencer, New Look, czy River Island, ale te偶 mn贸stwo innych sklep贸w takich jak Zara, Gap, H&M, Disney itd. Przy Oxford Street warto wst膮pi膰 do Selfridges, House of Fraser, czy Debenhams)

20:00 Kolacja

24:00 Powr贸t na lotnisko

Po Londynie porusza艂y艣my si臋 g艂贸wnie uberem, poniewa偶 nie mia艂y艣my czasu na to, aby zaznajomi膰 si臋 z innym 艣rodkiem transportu, na przyk艂ad metrem. My艣l臋, 偶e je偶eli by艂yby艣my d艂u偶ej pewnie korzysta艂yby艣my z innych rozwi膮za艅.

Szybkie zakupy w Londynie nie nale偶膮 do najta艅szych form robienia zakup贸w, ale tyle frajdy, pi臋knych rzeczy (20 kg dobroci!) i dobrego humoru nie mia艂y艣my od dawna! Polecam!
