No there is actually nothing naughty in Notting Hill rather it’s a place for plenty of noteworthy experiences. Usually higher up in the list of must-see places of any visitor to London’s, Notting Hill doesn’t stop to thrill even the Londoners from time to time. Not that I haven’t been there umpteenth of times, everytime it feels like there is something new to discover, like a dose of a chill pill every time at Notting Hill.
You don’t need to wear a nautical print shirt-dress only when you are out and about for a nautical adventure. No cruise-liners or sea shores, the attire turned out to be perfectly apt against the glitzy graffiti inside the Leake Street Tunnel on that rather overcast day in London.
The Chelsea Flower Show arranged by the Royal Horticulture Society was held from 23-27 May and what best way to expand the show around as Chelsea high street was also turned into a sea of floral waves again this year for the 12th time. As part of the Floral Safari dubbed “Chelsea in Bloom”, the entire posh west-end neighborhood of London was turned into an exhibition of floral artwork.
Weather was at its whimsical best last weekend when it blew hot and cold oscillating trying to figure out whether to let the sun shine or to let the rain doors open. Otherwise windy and rather chilly outside, the opportunity was ripe to explore a London venue under covers. Where else one could be amused in London but in many of its free museums and especially when a visit to the British Museum counts as the pilgrimage to explore the heritage and history of mankind and civilizations from around the world. With our sunglasses and umbrellas both with us – we went to immerse ourselves in the musings of the British Museum.
What is the hysteria with this wisteria around the London neighbourhoods? Well seeing is believing and therefore I stepped out to St. Leonard’s Terrace in Chelsea to unravel the mystery behind this history of the love for wistery-wisteria!
While you may claim insurance if your flight is delayed, you may not be entitled to claim compensation for late arrival of summer this year in London. Weather here is mercurial resulting in celebratory behaviour among the city dwellers in the first sight of sunshine and the first feel of proper balmy air. So was it the other weekend and we ventured out in the Regents Park to witness the first day first show of the supposedly short film in London called ‘Summer’.
Primrose Hill is a prime location to watch the London city skyline. We decided to make the most of the day light saving this weekend when the clocks were forwarded by an hour to allow for some more sunshine, atleast according to our clocks. So we thought to discover the primary elements of nature in London by exploring this famous and popular North London neighbourhood.
