Lady’s 15 Places that Will Make You Fall in Love with London

I was struck by something when I traveled to Washington, D.C. last month. Going through the museums, I noticed that the (European) history of the United States only went back a few centuries. It made perfect sense given the Pilgrims arrived in 1620, but it threw London’s long past into relief for me. I’ve always been fascinated by London’s history, and being in DC made me appreciate its heritage even more. I’ve paid particular attention to it since coming home, and today I want to share my highlights of London architecture through the centuries.

Lady’s Reasons to Discover Belsize Park

I have to admit something. I’m not proud of it, but it needs to be said. I’ve always overlooked London’s Belsize Park.

After I moved away I didn’t feel a need to go between Primrose Hill and South End Green. But lately something’s started nagging me, and I’ve been tempted to take a second look. So today I’m here to find a few things to do in Belsize Park. And—spoiler alert—I find far more than just a few.
