It’s no secret that I love London. And my adoration doesn’t just involve writing about the city and photographing its highlights. I also like curating my own personal collection of London-themed objects. From home decor to travel accessories, a lot of my belongings pay homage to the UK capital. If you love London as much as I do, today I want to share 7 lovely London must-haves with you.
There’s no better place to find pretty things than Etsy, and my inspiration comes from the goods they feature. So here they are in all their London loveliness…

I love the way this London map poster lays out all the neighborhoods in the city center. Given my obsession with exploring every inch of the Big Smoke, its artistic rendering of the city’s villages has great appeal. If you love discovering the city’s secrets, this is just the thing for you.

London Tote Bag
I carry my giant camera and telephoto lens around with me everywhere I go, so a good tote bag is a crucial accessory. This London tote is almost identical to the one I bring with me whenever I leave home in London and abroad. If you have a lot to carry, it’s a great way to show a love of the UK capital wherever you go in the world.
