My Favourite Things to Do in London This Spring

Now that spring has, well, sprung, I’m reminded of how much I love London in the warmer seasons. With its array of gorgeous green spaces and alfresco dining spots galore you just can’t go wrong. I thought I would share with you my favourite things to do in and around London as the sun makes its dramatic reappearance after a long dark winter...

My Favourite Things to Do in London This Spring

1) Head to Hyde Park and hire a pedalo or row boat

What greater way to welcome in the summer sunshine than by boating on the famous Serpentine? Situated in Hyde Park, hiring a boat here gives you a picturesque boating experience without having to leave Central London. If the pedalo doesn’t sound like the thing for you… Then there is also the opportunity to try out the UK’s first Solarshuttle – a smooth ride powered exclusively by the sun.

2) Go to Mudchute Park and Farm

A farm? In the middle of London? Although unconventional, Mudchute Park and Farm is the perfect place to reconnect with nature and get up close and personal with the animals in their care. Set in 32 acres of countryside in the heart of East London, this city farm works wonderfully as an escape from the hustle and bustle of central London. Another bonus? It’s free…

3) Visit Greenwich, for the views and the food…

Greenwich, in South East London, really comes into its own in the warmer months. Whether you walk to the observatory viewing platform, visit the park’s deer enclosure, or sample the delights of the Greenwich food market I can assure you will enjoy your time here…

Will you be boating this spring or summer, or would you rather indulge in one of the many edible delicacies that London has to offer? Whatever you do, I hope you have a great time and discover something new about this vibrant capital city!
