I felt so incredibly lucky to have my latest London trip fall on such a beautiful weekend. London in the sun is my favourite way to see the city and it was pure bliss to feel a bit of warmth on my face again – I mean, it could have been summer and in March, that’s always a brilliant surprise.
Somehow, the Real Food Market that comes to the Southbank every weekend managed to escape my attention until now so when we rounded to the corner to find a glorious mass of people and food, it was a lovely surprise.
In the warm weather, these smoothies looked so good and my boyfriend had to drag me away from a couple of pancake stalls. Why am I automatically drawn to the word pancake everywhere and anywhere?
There really isn’t much better than wandering around all the tourist spots in the sun. It’s a much more pleasant process than my previous trips in winter where we’ve paced from Tube station to attraction and back again, in a valiant attempt to avoid the biting wind. I’d never actually been to any of the famously beautiful London parks so we made sure to visit Hyde Park and St James’s on our trip.
Basically this post is just an ode to how wonderful Spring is and while I’m afraid it’s left us for a little while, it’s one of those weekends that I’ll always remember with a rose tinted haze. If you want to know more about the actual ‘stuff’ we did, including a few visits to some art galleries – I know, get us being all cultural – you can check back in a couple of days for another post.
