London is a story in itself, it opens up to you like a novel, divided into individual chapters, each chapter telling a story of its own, each story setting a scene, each scene turning into a sentence. It opens up to you like a series of rooms, doors and passages. Mayfair to Piccadilly to Regent to Covent garden. London isn’t just a city, it’s a world.
Walking down Oxford street, suddenly the clouds rolled back into the distance and the late morning sun brought a shine to the whole city, gently gliding across the surfaces of the marble buildings making the ones in the distance perch like silver coins, effortlessly the city was able to take my breath away all over again within a matter of seconds. And quite simply in that moment i was in love with London. I do not mean ‘love’ in any colloquial way, i mean i was in love with the city the way you love the moment when your eyes first catch a glimpse of a ray of sunshine that streams in through your curtains each morning.
I know one of your questions must be, “well what are your favourite places in London?” & that is exactly what i am going to share with you; my London top three. Firstly Hyde park is an essential place to visit, walking in the sunshine along the lake watching the swans swim along creates the perfect afternoon. I enjoyed a late lunch on the lake at Serpentine bar and kitchen, a relaxing lunch spot with a beautiful view. Secondly Aubaine Selfridges is the most paradisiac cafe to pay a visit to in between your shopping spree. This venue provides a relaxing setting to enjoy a cup of coffee beneath the wisteria covered ceiling. Lastly i decided to go on a little adventure and take in the beauty this city has to offer. Biking through London allows you to capture the allure of London.
