What is there to say about London that is new? Grey skies that are rarely brightened with sunshine, but when they are, they’re embraced with open arms and the superquick shedding of layers. Drizzle that becomes part of the air, streets filled with faces from all over the world, and music that plays underground and over, this is London town. A city that feels like 20 rolled into one, London has a thirst for culture and quenches it just so.
Start your morning with a walk into Carnaby (with an umbrella, don’t ever forget your umbrella), and stop by Patisserie Valerie (wherever you are, you’ll find one close by) to energise yourself. Order yourself the Eggs Benedict, they’re the absolute best in town. Head over to a patch of green wherever you spot one, London’s parks are the city’s best kept secrets. Situated in the middle of the concrete jungle are lush vast spaces of green, that serve as bubbles of fresh air, and sweet escapes from the fast paced sidewalks and tube lines of the city. Hyde park is the largest and most popular, with soft serves at every corner and a lake to go paddle boating in, but our favourite is the rose garden in Regent's’ Park, probably the best smelling spot in all of London and one that’ll transport you straight to another era. Feed the ducks, read a chapter, reflect, whatever you fancy.
