Anyone planning a weekend in London? Every time I open my laptop or Instagram recently there’s something fabulous to do in London catching my eye. Having lived in the bustling capital for several years before migrating northbound, I’m always happy to visit my ol’ stomping ground to enjoy the latest restaurant, shops, West End shows and exhibitions. Here’s a little inspiration for anyone planning a weekend in London.
Theatre: With live performances from West End musicals to cutting edge plays, London has some of the best theatre productions. It has one of the worlds best theatre scenes and attracts talent and people from all over. So, take your pick from musicals to classic plays or brand new stage performances. I’ve currently got my eye on Mamma Mia and Kinky Boots. Check out TodayTix and see what’s on in London when you’re due to pay the city a visit.
Petersham Nurseries: Petersham Nurseries – the rustic Richmond café and garden centre that boasts both a real-life meadow and a Michelin star has just opened a 16,000-square-foot destination in Covent Garden, and it looks blooming marvellous. Founders of Petersham Nurseries, the Boglione family have created a business that inspires, celebrates and shares exceptional knowledge, passion and creativity, I can’t wait to visit.
The Mae Deli: Healthy eating blogger Deliciously Ella has been busy building an empire based on the principles of natural, simple and honest eating. Ella has provided endless inspiration with recipes that are plant-based and are vegetarian, wheat and refined sugar free. The Mae Deli is Ella’s latest feat and I’m very keen to pay it a visit for a healthy lunch.
Moo Canoes: I’ve always fancied kayaking down the Thames with Moo canoes you can experience an alternative sightseeing tour in a canoe painted like a cow?! The tour runs from Limehouse Basin to Greenwich where you paddle through the Thames and eat at a riverside restaurant, sounds like a laugh.
