A Weekend in London

I can get a little despondent 😔 about living in London - the pollution😷, the packed tubes🚃, the traffic 🚗🚕🚙, the people EVERYWHERE👷🏻👨🏻‍💻👩🏻‍🍳👨🏼‍🔧👨🏽‍💼👸🏻👨‍🚀👨🏻‍✈️👰🏻👩🏻‍⚖️🙆🏻🤷🏻‍♀️ - it can all be a little bit too much sometimes.But I also love that there is so much to do 🎭🎨🎻🎧🚴🏻🎯🥂🍿💃🏻and so many new things to discover and places to explore 🗺 - I am constantly curious, and love trying out new things💁🏻.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 👩🏻‍💻and back again🏡 and miss out on all the exciting things happening🍸☕️🍭🍱👗🎨🎭🎪. The summer ☀️☀️☀️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 💕

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 avocado🥑), and are open in the evening for drinks 🥂 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 sunset🌅.  Once the sun is down the film🎥 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 🕺🕺 and La La Land 💃 – 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 💏 by Richard Bean (you'll know him from One Man, Two Guvnors) a love story 💔set against the shifting world of London post World War 1.  It’s 75 minutes of    pure enjoyment 😃 (although maybe not first date material) with time for dinner and drinks after too, try Sticks'n'Sushi in Covent Garden 🍣🍸👌🏻. 

Have Afternoon Tea at Fleming’s Mayfair

I love afternoon tea 🥂🍰🍭☕️🍩and am always on the hunt for a new one. The décor in the Drawing Room of this hotel is very beautiful, I’m slightly obsessed with their teal sofas and chairs💚 and I really love the murals on the walls🎨🐘.  An excellent tea in beautiful surroundings 😃.

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 💘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 town💃🏻🕺. Check out The Exhibit in Balham for drinks  🍻after.
