A few month ago we featured a design post by one of our favorite bloggers, Supal Desai of chevrons & éclairs. Since then, Supal moved to London and today shares with us her favorite places to visit so far.
It has officially been 6 months since I’ve moved to London and every second is always so exciting, new, energetic and magical! Usually, I spend my weekends perusing the city’s corners and what a lovely experience it is. London is incredibly diverse and has so much to offer, from visiting galleries to trying new markets and even getting lost in a sweet, little village. After the last 6 months, I think I’ve found a few favorite places to visit, but I’m sure that will change over the course of the next 6 months or even year.
It is pretty obvious that I am absolutely in love with iconic London, I take a trip down to Waterloo often to take in the views from the London Eye of Big Ben and the majestic ambiance of Westminster Abbey. I used to visit during the day with a cup of coffee in hand, but it wasn’t until I met with a friend for an evening walk around the Embankment to take in the lights and views of the cities icons.
Every single blogger, either local or foreigner, would always upload an Instagram from the Columbia Road Flower Market and it is just as charming as all the photos. Layers upon layers of roses, tulips, hydrangeas and seasonal shrubs–it’s the perfect place to visit for a little stroll, a fresh bouquet, and a nice brunch.
My absolutely favorite place, and walking distance to where I live, in all of London is the Victoria & Albert Museum. I’ve always been inspired by art, but later I found that there is a gorgeous library housed in the V&A that overlooks the gardens and water fountain. Anytime I write a blog for my post, I like to be in the right setting, completely inspired. And so a visit to the National Art Library for a few hours to blog on a Saturday afternoon is just what I like to do.
Hope you enjoyed my little tour of London!
