travel blogger, traveling, travel, london, europe, trip, vacation
My adventure in London continues with the visit to countless museums, one more beautiful than the other. In these 3 days you'll see in this post, I visited 4 museums, 2 parks and lots of landmarks that are a must visit for this beautiful city. In the last day I also visited the Harry Potter Warner Bros studios, but that's going to be another special post ♥.


Mi viaje en Londres continúa con un sinfín de museos, uno más hermoso que otro. En estos tres días van a ver mi visita a 4 museos, 2 parques y mi visita a muchos puntos de referencia de esta hermosa ciudad. En el último día también visité los estudios de Harry Potter, pero ese va a ser un posteo aparte ♥.

I wasn't as impressed as I thought I would be by this museum, but this must be mainly because the main hall was closed!

No me impresionó tanto como yo pensaba, pero probablemente sea porque el hall principal estaba cerrado.

The Victoria and Albert Museum is, in my opinion, the most beautiful museum I've been to in London. The collection is huge, every piece so impressive. The sculptures are gorgeous, but I honestly wouldn't want to be there alone at night :P Also the gardens are astounding! It felt like I was inside a painting, is this even real?

El museo de Victoria y Alberto es, en mi opinión, el museo más lindo en el que estuve en Londres. La colección es enorme y cada pieza es impresionante. Las esculturas son hermosas, pero la verdad no me gustaría estar ahí sola dentro de noche :P ¡Ni hablar de los jardines! Sentía que estaba metida dentro de una pintura, ¿es real todo esto?

This exhibition went over the history of Japan in clothes, armor and home decor. At the end, they'd show you stuff from the last 10 years and I was surprised to see a mannequin dressed in full Lolita attire there!

Esta exhibición recorría la historia de Japón en indumentaria, armaduras y objetos decorativos. Al final de la recorrida mostraban cosas más actuales, ¡y cuál fue mi sorpresa al ver un maniquí vestido de Lolita!

Antique shoes are probably my favorite thing to look at. Did you know that until 1850 there was no difference between the left and the right foot? :O

Probablemente lo que más me guste mirar sean zapatos. ¿Sabian que hasta 1850 no hacían diferencia entre el pie derecho y el izquierdo? :O

This museum was lots of fun to visit because I could indentify so many times my mom and I used! I was very displeased to see that their cellphones collection didn't feature the Nokia 1100 though :( hwo dare they?!

Me divertí mucho en este museo, ¡porque pude identificar cosas que tanto mamá como yo usábamos! Igual me super decepcionó que no tuvieran el Nokia 1100 entre su colección de celulares :( ¡¿cómo se atreven?!

HYDE PARK

Don't forget to walk through the Rose Garden when you go to Hyde Park! The smell is intoxicating and the colors so vivid; I was surprised to even see free parrots on one of the trees.

¡No se olviden de caminar por el Jardín de Rosas cuando visiten Hyde Park! El aroma es riquísimo y los colores super brillantes; hasta me sorprendió ver loros sueltos, libres, en uno de los árboles.

I didn't really think Kesington Palace was worth the price I paid for entering. It had an amazing shop indeed, but for a 15 minute exhibition it was just too much... there wasn't much to see, only a few pieces of furniture and clothing and that was it.

No me pareció que el Palaco de Kensington valió la pena por la entrada que pagué. Tiene un increíble shop, sí, pero por una exhibición de 15 minutos me pareció mucho... no había tampoco mucho para ver, algunos muebles, ropa y chau.

ENTRY 5£
Open every day of the year (except Christmas Day) from 9.30am - 6pm
221b Baker St, Marylebone, London NW1 6XE, UK

I highly enjoyed this museum. It's tiny and cramped, but worth every pound you pay for the ticket. Also, they have one of the best museum shops I've ever been to!

Disfruté mucho de este museo. Es chico y muy abarrotado de cosas, pero vale mucho la pena pagar por la entrada porque es único. Además, ¡tienen la tienda de regalos más linda de todos los museos en los que he estado!

In one of the exhibitions, they had some sort of guest book where people could write down their names and where they came from. I thought that was a very original and cute idea :)

En una de las habitaciones, tenían un libro donde la gente podía escribir su nombre y de dónde venían. Me pareció una idea muy original de parte del museo :)

Regent's Park


I decided to visit Regent's Park before grabbing lunch and relax a bit, surrounded by nature, birds and water.

Decidí visitar Regent's Park antes de ir a almorzar para relajarme en la natural, rodeada de pajaritos y el agua.

Camden Market


For some weird reason I thought it'd be closed on a Thursday, because in my mind fairs like those are only open on weekends like Portobello Market, but to my surprise it was!!! This is the place where you'll get all your souvenirs half the price you can get them everywhere else in London. It's also the clothing paradise for pin-up, gothic and steampunk lovers out there!

Por alguna extraña razón, pensaba que iba a estar cerrado el Jueves cuando fui, porque por lo general ferias de ese estilo están abiertas solo los fines de semana, ¡pero para mi sorpresa esta estaba abierta! Este es el lugar donde van a comprarse todos los souvenirs que quieran a la mitad del precio que los pueden comprar en otros lados de Londres. ¡También es el paraíso para los fanáticos de la ropa pin-up, gótica y steampunk!

ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL


www.stpauls.co.uk
Monday to Saturday 9:30AM - 430PM // 18£
St. Paul's Churchyard, London EC4M 8AD

To be honest, I felt like I was being ripped of by this place. I don't know about you, but when I pay to enter a certain exhibition, museum or church, I expect to leave having lived an experience of some sort. With St. Paul's Cathedral, that didn't happen. I don't have a single memory from being inside the cruch. We couldn't even take a photo without flash! I do get it's a religious space and all, but if I can't take a single photo then what are you charging me for?

Para serles honesta, me sentí estafada por la catedral. No se ustedes, pero cuando pago por entrar a alguna exhibición, museo o iglesia, espero irme habiendo vivido una experiencia de algún tipo. Con la Catedral de St. Paul no me pasó eso. No tengo ningún recuerdo que me haga recordar que estuve dentro de la catedral. Ni una foto sin flash pude sacar, ¿pueden creerlo? Entiendo que es un espacio religioso y todo, pero si no puedo sacar ni una foto, ¿qué me estarías cobrando?

City of London


On Friday 9th, besides going to the Harry Potter Warner Bros tour, I met up with some friends of my uncle's girlfriend to get to know them and hang out a bit around the City of London. I was originally going to visit all these landmarks on Monday, but there was a terrorist attack on the day before while I was flying :( so I guessed it was safer to let things cool down a bit and do it near the end of the week.

El Viernes 9, aparte de ir al Tour de Harry Potter, me encontré con unos amigos de la novia de mi tio para conocerlos mejor y recorrer la City. Planeaba visitar el centro el primer día que llegué, pero hubo un atentado ese mismo día así que decidí dejarlo para más adelante :(

Even if you don't stop to have anything to eat, visiting this lovely market should be a must in your list. I had a beer and fries at Pizza Express.

Aún si no van a comer nada ahí, tiene que visitar este hermoso mercadito. Yo comí en Pizza Express unas papas fritas con cerveza.

BUCKINGHAM PALACE


Even though it was closed by that time of the year, I still had to pass by and see the wonderful palace with my own eyes.

Aunque el palacio estaba cerrado en la época que yo fui a visitar, tenía que pasar sí o sí para ver este increíble edificio con mis propios ojos.

Of course I had to finish my day having fish n chips for dinner :P
