After Stonehenge, we went back to London and stayed at Hotel Megaro again. The next day we had a delicious and hearty breakfast at The Riding House Cafe near Oxford Circus, thanks to recommendation by a dear friend from Malaysia who happened to be visiting London at the time.
We then spent the afternoon at Warner Bros. Studio Tour – the Making of Harry Potter. It was well worth the trip. We spent over 3 hours there without knowing. So cool to see all the real props and sets from the movies. We appreciate the movies even more now that we know how much effort and time were invested into making them. It was truly amazing. My favorite part of the tour was the Hogwarts castle model, impressive craftsmanship.
On our final day, last but not least, the British Museum. We spent the morning there, a bit rush but managed to check out most of the major artefacts. For the rest of the afternoon, it was just easy shopping around Oxford Circus and Carnaby Street, and later wandered into Kingly Court and had a satisfying wrap up dinner at Wright Brothers.
As much as I like their food, I always find it very discouraging to go there because of their long queue. We decided to try our luck last weekend and were even prepared to go off shopping after registering for the queue. When we got there we found out they finally take reservation for parties of all size at Scotts Square and were told we might be able to get a table at 3pm! (It was around noon at the time). The good thing is you would instantly give up waiting…lucky for us we got called back before we walked out of the mall and we got a 1.5hr time slot right away.
The berry sauce is very nice … not too sweet, not too sour
We have been here once but at the time we didn’t know it is a very popular brunch place. Since we are in search for Sunday brunch places, here we are again….
We got here before noon and just when the breakfast crowd started to leave.
Ordered the Full Monty for kids to share….it is huge, I think adults can share too
Breakfast burrito – nothing special about it
Egg Benedict – nicely done
Green Egg & Ham – scrambled egg in basil pesto with Parma ham, a pleasant surprise…pesto taste wasn’t too strong
Note – Their waiting time for food is at least 20 – 30mins, on top of the table queuing time.
Our first time in Duxton Hill, nice little neighborhood inside CBD. Very quiet and relaxing on Sunday but I guess quite a happening place during the week.
Really like the ambiance at Group Therapy, casual and relaxing. they serve all day breakfast and also have a pretty wide menu. Best is they take reservation!
Croissant was too hard but the rest was good, kids finished all except the salad.
Ham & Cheese Panini – again, kids finished all
Nice juicy burger, didn’t expect to get a good burger at a café!
Yummy egg benedict with salmon…
We walked around in Duxton Hill area after lunch, quite a lot of restaurants in the area, definitely will come back and try them.
