Admittedly it is a few weeks ago that I spent a wonderful and colourful spring weekend in London with my friend Bridgee. We attended a blogger styling and photography workshop on a farm in East Sussex (I blogged about it HERE) but the rest of the weekend was reserved for some inspiring strolls throughout London. And I thought it would be nice to share a few favorite spots with you here today.
Many years ago while being a student I worked for a major retailer and conducted a marketing project. And we were working with a London based design studio that was located in a wonderfully charming area - Primrose Hill. That was the moment when I discovered this beautiful quarter. So it was clear that I had to go back there and enjoy a brunch in one of the many inviting cafés and that is my first recommendation: The Greenberry Café. This café not only features a wonderful interior and some sunny places in front of it, but serves also delicious food and drinks - the pancakes were a scrumptious dream. And the staff was beyond cool and friendly. Must go if you are there!
Of course there is no visit to Primrose Hill without climbing the actual hill and enjoying a wonderful view of downtown London. Take your time, sit down on the lawn and take in the typical London atmosphere. And afterwards, I recommend just strolling around Primrose Hill. You will find lovely little shops along its main street Regent's Park Road. Plus, it's a stone's throw to walk further to Camden Town and discover the other, more punk side of London.
Regarding the accommodation we've opted for an airbnb apartment in the leafy borough of Islington in London's north. The apartment was a great success and a pleasure to stay in: Its interior design was dominated by warm colours and ethnic elements added more character to this period home in a quiet residential street in Islington. If you like what you see, check out more pictures of the apartment in my Roombeez article HERE.
I hope you enjoyed today's little stroll through London and I am wishing you a very happy new week! See you tomorrow!
