Today, I went on an Arcadia #HiddenLondon event to Sky Garden and Borough market, and it was my first Hidden London event. This was such a great day, and I would not have known about these two amazing places in London if it was not for this Arcadia event. Sky Garden is on the 43rd floor of a building in Central London, and it provides views of the entire city of London. You can walk around the entire inside of the building, or you can go outside onto the viewing deck. Sky Garden offers views of some of London’s most well-known sites such as the Shard, the Tower Bridge, the River Thames, and the London Eye. The views are breathtakingly beautiful. Also on the inside of Sky Garden is a lovely indoor garden. There are restaurants and cafes inside Sky Garden, as well. It is the perfect place to walk around, relax and enjoy the views. Sky Garden is one of my favorite places that I have been to in London so far. The location was incredible as well, and I was able to walk past the Monument, the Tower Bridge, and the London Bridge on my way from Sky Garden to Borough Market.

After Sky Garden, we went to Borough Market, which I had never heard of before. It is the most adorable market place in Central London, and there are endless amounts of different food booths from all over the world. It is one of the oldest and most abundant food markets in London. All of the food looks and smells delicious and fresh. I could eat here every day and find something different to eat! This day was overall one of my favorite days that I have spent in the city so far!
