A Weekend in London

I can get a little despondent πŸ˜” about living in London - the pollution😷, the packed tubesπŸšƒ, the traffic πŸš—πŸš•πŸš™, the people EVERYWHEREπŸ‘·πŸ»πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³πŸ‘¨πŸΌβ€πŸ”§πŸ‘¨πŸ½β€πŸ’ΌπŸ‘ΈπŸ»πŸ‘¨β€πŸš€πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈπŸ‘°πŸ»πŸ‘©πŸ»β€βš–οΈπŸ™†πŸ»πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ - it can all be a little bit too much sometimes.But I also love that there is so much to do 🎭🎨🎻🎧🚴🏻🎯πŸ₯‚πŸΏπŸ’ƒπŸ»and so many new things to discover and places to explore πŸ—Ί - I am constantly curious, and love trying out new thingsπŸ’πŸ».And I am a firm believer that if you live in London🎑, for however long, you must use it to it's full potential - it is all too easy to go to work πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»and back again🏑 and miss out on all the exciting things happeningπŸΈβ˜•οΈπŸ­πŸ±πŸ‘—πŸŽ¨πŸŽ­πŸŽͺ. The summer β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈis the perfect time to get out and do things, so below I have found 5 things you should do if you are in London 🎑 this weekend.Alice xxx πŸ’•

Visit the Pear Tree Cafe and have a Jude's Ice Cream

This beautiful cafe 🍐tucked away in Battersea Park serves delicious ice cream 🍧by Jude's - the black coconut is the one you want to try, it's very yummy indeed. They also do a great brunch (try the smashed avocadoπŸ₯‘), and are open in the evening for drinks πŸ₯‚ with a fun outdoor area right next to the boating lake🚣🏻. Absolutely worth a visit.

See a film on top of the Bussey Building

Sit outdoors on the roof of the Bussey Building in deckchairs and enjoy a beautiful sunsetπŸŒ….  Once the sun is down the filmπŸŽ₯ begins, it’s all very modern with wireless headphones🎧 and most importantly they provide blankets.  There is also a bar at the top and, and you can take drinks 🍹🍿in, and Peckham itself is just a vibrantly fun place to visit 🍻. This weekend they are showing The Nice Guys πŸ•ΊπŸ•Ί and La La Land πŸ’ƒ – maybe go twice and spend two evenings with Ryan Gosling😘.

Go and see Kiss Me at Trafalgar Studios

Claire Lams and Ben Lloyd-Hughes star ⭐️🎭 in Kiss Me πŸ’ by Richard Bean (you'll know him from One Man, Two Guvnors) a love story πŸ’”set against the shifting world of London post World War 1.  It’s 75 minutes of    pure enjoyment πŸ˜ƒ (although maybe not first date material) with time for dinner and drinks after too, try Sticks'n'Sushi in Covent Garden πŸ£πŸΈπŸ‘ŒπŸ». 

Have Afternoon Tea at Fleming’s Mayfair

I love afternoon tea πŸ₯‚πŸ°πŸ­β˜•οΈπŸ©and am always on the hunt for a new one. The dΓ©cor in the Drawing Room of this hotel is very beautiful, I’m slightly obsessed with their teal sofas and chairsπŸ’š and I really love the murals on the walls🎨🐘.  An excellent tea in beautiful surroundings πŸ˜ƒ.

Experience LOOP with BoxLess Physical Theatre

Tucked away in the attic theatre 🎭 at N16, this fun-loving play is a journey through 50 years of love πŸ’˜and music 🎢 . A superbly entertaining evening with a score of classic old school tunes 🎀🎼and laugh out loud moments, LOOP will put you in the perfect mood for a night out on the townπŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•Ί. Check out The Exhibit in Balham for drinks  πŸ»after.
