British Museum & Flesh and Buns

We finally made it to the British Museum which is listed as the #1 thing to do on Trip Advisor when in London. We had been told by so many people that we must go to the British Museum and I'm so glad we did. It's said to be one of the greatest museums in the world and it's free! I have no idea why we haven't managed to visit this place sooner!

The British Museum occupies a beautiful building in central London and is worthy of visiting for the architecture alone. The building itself is impressive, with it’s colossal columns dominating the entrance and the amazing glass ceiling filtering the light through the modern central hub. The museum is huge and you can literally spend hours wandering around. One second your checking out the Egyptian Mummies, next your in Ancient Greece with the Gods.

No matter what your interests, there is something for everyone and an ideal place to visit on a rainy day in London! Knowing we would build up quite an appetite wondering through 10,000 years of history, We had made an advanced booking at the highly anticipated and famous Flesh and Buns

I'm not going to lie, Jake and I have become a little obsessed with the Bao craze and Flesh and Buns specialises in these gourmet treats. We had booked for their Sunday bottomless brunch. Not quite breakfast, not quite lunch but improved with the addition of free refills of bubbly and cocktails! You can't get better than an afternoon of eating, drinking and catching up with good friends in London.

Everything is made to share at Flesh and Buns and we weren’t shy about getting stuck in!

The waiters whirled around us topping up our glasses with Prosecco and we could replenish our plates as many times as we liked…however, we did have to keep in mind, we still had two more courses to come!

Obviously the restaurant’s signature dish is the flesh and buns! We filled our light, fluffy buns with all sorts of goodness including crispy piglet belly with mustard miso and apple pickle or crispy duck leg with sour plum sauce and beetroot pickle! Drooling yet?

By this time, my waistline was bulging and the Prosecco was going down a treat! Needless to say that I made sure I saved room for DIY SMORES! Complete with your own little fire….

The British Museum is definitely worth a visit and the food at Flesh and Buns is incredible. Make sure you clear your afternoon and get yourself down there…You will love it!
