We recommend eating London’s most Instagrammed rainbow poke bowls at Kaia and enjoying cocktails on the roof, looking out over St Paul’s and the city skyline at sunset.
They say the best way to experience a city is by foot. Awash with architectural wonders, London is a city with two faces. Modernist lines and mirrored glass surround historic wonders that sit waiting to be found. Tucked away behind modern buildings in the heart of the City of London, you’ll find The Walbrook Club, a 1952 Queen Anne-style townhouse converted into a beautiful private member’s club.
Keep going and you will stumble upon the iconic cultural institutions of the old East End. Small shabby buildings line cobbled streets steeped with history. It is as if time has stood still.
A city of seasons, Londoners are hardened to the elements, but never shy away from a good honest cup of tea. Sleepy Sundays find us holed up in the Typing Room located in East London’s Town Hall Hotel, cosying up with a hot cuppa and a good read.
There is no better place to escape the bustle of the city than Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. A two-minute walk from our home, the lush Palm House and tree-lined walkways are a tranquil reminder to slow down and take the time to waste a moment.
