There are so many different things to do in west London now that the weather’s finer that it’s finding time to relax that will be the difficult part. From suburban shopping to walks in the park and experiencing some of the beautiful places London is most famous for, when it comes to London, west is definitely best for keeping busy.
Here’s a few things you should definitely enjoy in west London this spring:
Charming, bustling, full of life and with an array of pastel-coloured houses lining the streets, there’s nothing like a trip to Notting Hill to brighten up a grey London day. Head to Portobello Road market and wander down the treasure trove of stalls to find a rare antique amongst the rows of bric-a-brac, clothes and shoes.
Don’t forget to sample some delicious street food or to stop off at one of the adorable cafes for a nice slice of cake and a cup of tea.
London’s most famous department store is more than a day out for many people. Where else in London can you pick up luxury clothing from all the best designers, an abundance of new skin care products, dine at a selection of the capital’s finest restaurants and have a full spa treatment and a blow dry?
Don’t miss out on taking a trip to the store’s amazing women-only Urban Retreat Moroccan Hammam, where you can experience the purifying and detoxifying rituals of traditional Morocco.
A must-visit for all those new to London and even for those who’ve been before, a trip to the Royal family’s most stylish home is more exciting than you first thought. From exhibitions like Fashion Rules, about the most famous royal ladies’ style choices over the years, to finding out some interesting historical information about Queen Victoria and enjoying a stunning walk around the palace grounds.
West London is the place to be this spring, with so many different exhibitions, events and things to do going on, there’s no chance of getting bored or spending a day cooped up inside. Hop on the train to Watford to visit the Harry Potter Studios or go see a movie at the famous Electric Cinema—with so much to do, you’ll be ready for putting your feet up and having a rest before summer comes around.
