Sara our Design coordinator returned recently from her London trip. She has kindly shared her experience, enjoy the read !
Knights-bridge, undeniably one of the most prestigious spots on the London map. Where the affluent and royalty call home, the streets occupied with luxury shops and the roads filled with super cars that are probably worth more than a down payment on a flat in the area. However don’t let all that pretentious pea-cocking put you off, there are many cultural and beautiful (plus affordable) places to see and eat:
Duke of York markets – Every Saturday from 10am until 4pm an open-air Fine Food market offers artisanal and locally produced meat, game, fish, bread, cakes, cup-cakes and much more.
Saatchi Gallery: Duke of York Square is also home to the Saatchi Gallery, arguably the world’s leading contemporary art Gallery housing international collections of sculpture and art.
Daylesford café: One of my favourite places to grab a coffee. Here you will find all the fresh seasonal produce, raised and grown on their own farm.
The Nags head: A traditional and authentic English pub. Plus the owners enforce a ‘no mobile phone’ rule!
The V&A – Undeniably one of the most famous and greatest museums of art and design. Recently showcasing the Alexander McQueen ‘savage beauty’ exhibition showcasing his spectacular work.
Royal Albert Hall – Experience one of the most beautiful entertainment venues in London, home to the proms. I recommend the grad tour of the Albert hall followed by afternoon tea for a quintessentially British experience.
