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. The historic heart of London has so many layers and secrets that I always feel like it’s too big to tackle. But that’s changing today.
I love exploring London on foot. For me the city’s beauty lies in its details, and there’s no better way to see them than by walking. 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.
Over the last few months I’ve been sharing London itineraries on the blog. From one day to three, I’ve written out my ideal mix of things to do, see, and eat. I’ve gotten good feedback from you about them, so today I want to share my itinerary for 4 days in London. I hope you find it helpful!
Spring is here and I’m itching to travel. But while it’s easy to look abroad for seasonal sunshine, some of my favorite places to visit in spring are within an hour or two of London. England comes alive with color and life around this time, and every year I try to travel to as many of my favorite towns and gardens as I can. If you want to experience the best of the season, today I bring you 5 lovely spring day trips from London.
Spring has arrived in London! The daffodils are out in the parks and the days are getting longer and warmer every week. If you’ll be traveling to the UK capital in the next few months and want an insider’s guide to what to bring, here’s my spring packing list for London. These 5 things will help you pack light and arrive ready to live (and look) like a local.
When I think of my favorite London neighborhoods, Notting Hill always comes to mind. The area offers the perfect mix of everything I love about London, from markets and mews to good food and great nights out. I’ve been spending a lot of time there lately to soak up its colorful houses and atmospheric streets, and today I want to share some of my favorite things to do in Notting Hill.
