Last Friday my day started ridiculously early but all for good reason, I packed my little babes off to school and nursery and hopped on the train to London. It feels like forever ago since I was last in town for an event it was well over due.
Scott and I were heading to The Shard to hear all about Chestertons Polo in the Park, the annual polo competition held at Hurlingham park in Fulham on the 9,10 & 11th June. I never really pictured Polo as being my thing but since going along and hearing a little more I’m a complete Polo convert and we cannot wait to go to the main event!
So to give you a quick run down of the weekend; Friday it all kicks off with international day, teams from all over the world come to take part. Saturday is ladies day get ready for a hat off and a ton of champagne to be consumed. Sunday (the day we will be going) is finals day, the last day to catch all the action and it is really geared up toward children.With fun activities and entertainment from Sharky & George including a huge pitch invasion, water bombing, giant bubbles and a 100-a-side tug of war!
We got a little taste of the activities with sticky bubble blowing in The Shard, slightly different to what most people go up there for!
The View from the Shard is so gorgeous, this was my first ever visit to The Shard and the views are just breathtaking. It was so lovely to be shown around with a glass of champagne in hand, you can see so much, I didn’t have a clue what I was actually looking at so would definitely recommend getting a tour guide to point London’s landmarks out.
Kids are going free at the shard this May half term so worth booking yourselves a trip if you are going to be in London.
Full of bubbles we left The Shard in search of food and headed for Borough Market.
Borough Market is a foodies dream, from one stall to the next the aroma hits you in waves. Choosing which cuisine to go for is so tough.
We ended up grabbing some hotdogs and of corse in true blogger style I had to pick up some macaroons!
We finished our day walking all the way down Southbank, stopping for coffee and watching street artists. It was such a lovely day even if by the end of it my feet were killing and I had to purchase the most fetching pair of I <3 London flip flops!
