Taking to the Streets

August 27, 2017

As the summer is in full swing, and we’re into the month of August, the most exciting event on the calendar is the world famous #NottingHillCarnival.  Live music, great food and a jolly crowd letting their hair down is certainly worth seeing; that is if you are the type that does not get claustrophobic with many people around you. Just get to Notting Hill Gate Station on the Tube, and the #Carnival will find you.


To discover #urban #culture and #art, #Shoreditch would be my personal favourite. The streets themselves are filled with the most mind-blowing, ingenious and talented pieces I’ve ever seen, and the true connoisseurs of street art offer guided #tours all around the area. They depart from Old Street Station at 11am on a Saturday and Sunday and cost £15.  Don’t forget to stop for a break in a cafeteria called the Bookclub, on 100 Leonard Street, to get a real feel of the area.


Looking for something more relaxing? Take time for a leisurely stroll in St James’ Park. Conveniently placed right between #Buckingham Palace and #Westminster Abbey, it is a tourist’s paradise, so if you want to greet some visitors to the Capital (and hungry swans), St James’ should be your pick.
