Drink, Shop and Do!

We have just got back from a trip to London for our 3rd wedding anniversary. We went away in our campervan and stayed at a campsite in Abbey Wood, and then got the train in. 

We had a fantastic time and expect several blog posts about things we saw and did when we were there!

First off I wanted to share about this place 'Drink, Shop & Do' 

Our friend Clare, who lives in London, took us there, and it's quite near King Cross Station.

It is a design shop and cafe bar. The shop sells work of emerging designer/makers and everything in the cafe is for sale (tables, chairs, cabinets) and is all vintage, so the look is ever changing. The place was so gorgeous and sold wonderful cakes and drinks. I had a yummy oreo and banana milkshake :) 
It had such a wonderful atmosphere and had stacks of games that you could play to keep you entertained.

It also holds workshops most of which are free. One was happening while we were there, as a table of women all appeared to be working on an interesting looking textile project.

I really wish there was a place like this near us! We will definitely be going back!
