Autumn is well and truly upon us. The leaves are turning bright shades of yellow and red, the air is fresher and the days are getting shorter and shorter. Therefore it was only right that we made the most of the autumn sunshine to explore the nooks and crannies of London. Our destination this time, Little Venice in Maida Vale.
Before we moved to London we would usually come to the big smoke for a weekend away or a quick day trip. So knowing how to see everything on just 24hours is a speciality of ours! A day in London is just not long enough to see and do everything that London has to offer so be picky about what you want to see on your trip and do your research.
Sundays are made for lie-ins, relaxing, eating Sunday lunches and a going for gentle walks. And the latter is exactly what we decided to do a couple of weeks ago.
Every year some of London’s best known buildings, that aren’t usually accessible to the public, open their doors for FREE. This event, Open House, runs for one weekend (17th & 18th September) in Autumn. Open House celebrates the buildings and neighbourhoods around the capital city, allowing the public to view architecture from not only outside but inside too.
Markets and London go hand in hand together. Their history together is as long as a piece of string. London holds some of the best and weirdest markets in the country; anything from food and antiques to fashion and crafts they have it all.
