Okay, so this past month I’ve had a few problems with my web host meaning I haven’t been able to post anything. However, it is all sorted out now for the most part, and so here is a little London must-see post.

One of my favourite places in London is Richmond Park. It feels unlike any other public park in the city, and isn’t just a patch of green within the hustle and bustle of the capital – it actually (almost) feels a little like the countryside.

This may be to do with the fact that it is the biggest royal park in London, or the fact that you will almost definitely encounter deer on every walk around the park. Either way, its beauty is outstanding and I more than recommend a visit.

I feel that posting this right now is so relevant because I recently came back to London full time and I am lucky to be living so close to the park. Something I intend to do from now on is spend more time here!

It is much busier on a weekend, and so I do recommend visiting on a weekday if you’re after some peace and quiet without the nuisance of cars; unless you’re one of those people who like to people watch.

The park is so huge I have never been around the whole thing myself, and there are so many places inside I am yet to see. Isabellas Plantation is definitely one I have actually tried (and failed, doh) to find in the park because in the summer all of the flowers are in bloom and it is apparently one of the most beautiful places.

However, in the autumn and winter the mornings at Richmond Park are just as magical. It is well known for being misty here in the mornings, and with the dotted trees, long grass and deer the place looks absolutely incredible on a misty morning.

My last few days living outside of London this summer have been nice and well-spent. This time next week I will be living in London again and I can’t wait to be back in my favourite city!

Until then, I thought I would write up a short-but-sweet post on a different favourite city of mine in England: Canterbury. Although in comparison to London this city is much smaller, I love it because I spent three years of my life studying at College there, and although I was ready to move away from this place it is always nice to go back and appreciate its beauty.

It is always a tourist hotspot, and there are many reasons as to why so many people go.

Most of the international tourists here always visit the Cathedral which is stunning.

Despite the many┬ámodern shops and stores, such as Topshop and French Connection, the streets still have not lost their old traditional charms. Many of the buildings are a little older than you’d think, my favourite building is a restaurant on by the river – it has been there since the 1500’s. You can also take a river boat tour here too which although I am yet to try, I have heard its definitely worthwhile!

With cobbled streets, old fashioned sweet shops and ice cream carts, the city really does take tradition seriously!

There are more pubs than bars or clubs in Canterbury, so its the perfect place for a proper pub crawl! When we visited the other day we went to the Foundry Brew Pub for their craft beer festival.

I always love to go to small festivals like these; they’re inexpensive, have great live music and you can always find yourself meeting new people. We found ourselves chatting to some guys and girls from South Africa and Canada at this one.

They had travelled in from London that day too, so that’s just proof that it doesn’t take long to reach these other cute places and how worthwhile it can be.
