Ben was lucky enough to win tickets to the Apple Music Festival so we booked up trains and a hotel for the night and headed down to London. I didn’t take as many artsy photos as I would of liked and didn’t take my camera to the gig but don’t underestimate the quality of an iPhone! I’m pretty happy with how the very few photos I took turned out.
So the plan was to eat as much amazing food as possible, dance to Florence all night and pop into a few shops we don’t have at home.
As soon as we checked in and dropped our bags we both looked at each other and I could tell we were both thinking the same thing. Homeslice. The best pizza you will ever eat. It’s so big you have to roll the slice up and eat it like a sandwich which I will admit can get a bit messy, but so worth it. For a person who normally slops I was proud when my white shirt left unstained. Every London trip for us includes Homeslice so I highly recommend you check it out if you’re a big foodie like me.
After a coffee stop and a bit of shopping it was time to head to Roundhouse. The venue was spot on, with just under 2,000 people the gig felt intimate and you could see everything clearly unlike at a huge arena. James Bay was ill so couldn’t play the gig but Florence and the Machine made up for it. Florence is up there with the best singers and performers I’ve seen live. We really did have the best night. Cheers to Apple Music for the free tickets!
The next morning we headed to The Breakfast Club and Borough Market before wandering around tower bridge area. The sun was out in full force so we sat by the river with a cold pint and nibbled on some peanut butter rocky road which tasted incredible.
