We started out Moira & Dan's last day in London at Chinwag, a tiny little cafe near me in New Cross. The door looks like a British phonebooth and the menus are all in little old books, so I was obviously in my element.

Dan got a lamb burger that was literally the size of his face. Like, actually. His whole face. They do have that written on their chalkboard menu, but I mean.. his face.

Moira and I stuck with the full English, swapping hashbrowns and sausages and giving Dan a few beans to go with his burger.

Afterwards we hit up the Natural History Museum for a look at the mammals and dinos.

Then, since it was right outside, we bought tickets and headed into the Sensational Butterflies exhibit.

It was really really hot and humid in there so we didn't stay long..

But not before one decided to perch on Dan for a few minutes! Moira and I were slightly jealous. Although I think maaaybe I might have panicked a little had one landed on me.

What would a day be without a cupcake? Pistachio. obviously.

Sat outside a park (since we weren't allowed to drink IN the park) sipping ciders and playing Celebrity Lookalike.

And then, to end the trip off, The Lion King! Which, if you haven't seen yet, (you probably have), GOOOO see it. So amazing. We were almost crying when it started. We may have talked about this for months and months in advance. Just a little Disney obsessed, and it was well worth the wait!

So, Moira and Dan, come back now please?

Aahh I love Chinwag! Such a good vibe in that place. When my dad helped us move we took him there for lunch and shared the beef and chicken burgers between three of us - literally stuffed!

Sounds like you had a fab time! x

That's a pretty epid burger, I don't think I could manage it all, but I'd try my best.
It's been years and years since I have been to the Natural History Museum in London, I love that kind of place. We have one in Brussels that the bf and I have been to quite a few times. Looks like a great way to spend the day!
