What To Do In London (Knightsbridge & Chelsea): Harrods & Sticks n Sushi

I’m a little late posting this one, I was supposed to post this back in February. However, better late than never, right?!

I was actually inspired to write this after a lovely reader was binge-reading my London posts and leaving comments saying she found them helpful. As well as thinking to myself, how much I enjoy writing about my ventures around London.

For those who don’t know, I moved further away, on the outskirts of Hertfordshire over two years ago, but it takes only twenty-five minutes to get into London by train. I’m really fortunate to have London so close by and I really don’t make the most of going in enough, but that has to change!

Any who… My best friend and I had a day in London together back in February. We walked all around London stepping over 20,000 steps.

We started off in Knightsbridge, wandered around the infamous Harrods – we spent hours in there!

Harrods had one of my favourite artist’s collaborating with one of the incredible well-known fashion designers. Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama. It took over the whole of Harrods on the outskirts and some little bits inside. At the time I was searching for ages trying to get the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama cakes but I sadly couldn’t find.

I’ve been a BIG BIG fan of Yayoi Kusama since she exhibited back in 2010 or 2011 I believe? You’d have to scroll all the way to the back-end of my Instagram to see images of the exhibition if you’re curious.

So yes, I was SUPER happy when Harrods made a big thing of her infamous polka dots.

Harrods is always great for browsing, I did buy my husband two ‘longboys’ from the food court, but other than that, just dreamed of all the things I wish I could have afforded.

Next we walked from Harrods, Knightsbridge to Chelsea. For some scrumptious sushi at Sticks n Sushi.
I’d been meaning to check out Sticks n Sushi for yonks and it did not disappoint.

And then made our way to Battersea to see the Battersea Power Station. I sadly didn’t get any snaps of Battersea as my phone ran out of battery. However, it’s really great for shopping! Definitely going to go back there at some point.

So, that was our adventure day out in London, I hope you enjoyed reading it.

I hope to visit London more during Spring and Summer. I’m possibly going to Wimbledon for the first time ever, but need to do a bit more planning!

    We had 2 weeks in London. We saw the “Court to Couture “at Kensington Palace, enjoyed a high tea , had a coffee every morning, visited the Leadenhall markets and saw the remnant of the Roman basilica under the hairdresser, did a canal walk from Hoxton to the Thames, visited Camden , Seven Dials, Science Museum and the London Dockyard museum (really interesting ). Love riding around in the double decker buses. London has such a great vibe. I read “Belgravia “ while I was in London and it mentions some of these places. Thanks for your inspiration .

      These all sound really lovely. I love Camden – haven’t actually been there in like 8 years I’d say. My husband actually mentioned that he would like to visit Camden the other day! Science Museum is veryyy cool too, I used to go there LOADS when I was at uni and living in London for a short 2 years.

      V&A, Tate and Design Museum are also good to visit. There’s a childhood museum which I think is connected to the V&A too. And then there are some really really unusual museums pottered about – there’s one in Holborn that’s quite interesting but cam’t remember the name of it.

      Aw any-time, I’m really happy you like reading my London posts. Always reminds me to write more about London!

      I still haven’t been into London since Feb, we were planning to see Les Mis at the theatre in early July but I had to cancel. Also we were going to go in for Wimbledon, but couldn’t get tickets this year and I haven’t been too well, so didn’t fancy queuing. I have lots of experience London day vouchers to use up, so I’m sure we will go into London in August and September.

      Also there are lovely countryside villages on the outskirts of London. Like Oxford, Cotswolds etc. And Watford (my home town) has the Harry Potter studios and Warner Bro’s studios next door. xx

      Hi Jillian! So lovely to see a comment from you. That’s so exciting that you’re coming back to London for a wedding! I hope you and your sister have the best time!

      That reminds me I really need to catch up with all my posts as I haven’t been blogging much due to health reasons, however, I love writing and have a few London posts to still write about from November onwards. I did write about some adventures on my latest blog post, the Scorpio Season one before my health stuff happened. Anyway, I’d love to hear what you get up to!

      There are some cool exhibitions and things to do during Spring in London. And, Notting Hill area is lovely around that time with the blossom trees and colourful houses. Battersea is a lovely area to explore too. Xx
