Summer is officially here, and it’s hot outside. Which is great, because there are so many amazing places to visit in England when the weather is warm (and even when it isn’t). If you’re looking for a quick getaway this season, today I bring you 5 lovely summer day trips from London.
Summer has arrived. London’s weather is cheerfully sunny, and the forecast looks even brighter. I’m spending as much time as I can outdoors, and some of my favorite places to do so are pubs with beer gardens in London.
One of the most common questions I get asked is “what kind of camera do you use?”.

You have no idea how long I’ve been avoiding writing this blog post. I’ve been telling myself to write a City of London guide for years, but there’s a problem: it’s intimidating.

I know many of you feel the same, so over the next two weeks I want to share my 3 favorite London walks with you. I’ll start with a self-guided walk in Hampstead and continue with walks in Kensington and Notting Hill.
My boyfriend calls Victoria the dead center of London. It’s right in the heart of the city, but there’s not much going on. Until recently, that is. The neighborhood has been a construction zone for years, and it’s finally emerging from the dust with a load of new offerings. In case you haven’t been in a while, here’s A Lady in London’s guide to Victoria.
