After a long and eventful U.S. tour, Taylor Swift deserves to take a little time for herself. On Tuesday, the 'Mean' starlet was spotted looking casual and relaxed while sightseeing in London.

According to Celebuzz, Taylor is across the pond to do a little work, but did indulge in some serious R&R despite a little sour weather. The 22-year-old pop/country famer braved the drizzle (with help from her umbrella) and hit Bond Street in search of some candy from chocolate shop Charbonnel et Walker before taking a lunch break at Cote Brasserie.

Earlier in the day, however, Swift was seen coming out of Cameron Mackintosh's office. For those who don't know, Mackintosh is an esteemed theater producer, and given Miss Swift's role in the upcoming 'Les Miserables' flick, we think it's a safe bet that that's why they were meeting. The 'Love Story' hitmaker will portray Eponine alongside seasoned stars like Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen and more.

Taylor Swift's Speak Now World Tour picks back up in Australia in March.
