The golden leaves are fading away almost as quickly as they appeared here in London.
If there is one place you can still catch the last of Autumn in London, its Regents Park.
I’m used to the colours of Richmond Park and Hyde Park, but Regents Park truly topped them all this year.
The leaves may be falling from the trees, but that just makes the pavements even more beautiful – just try to resist kicking around in the absolute piles of leaves…
The park is big enough to spend hours in whiling away the day. Grab a coffee and snack from one of the teeny cafes or even go for a full meal in the few restaurants that are here.
But what really is worth a visit, is Primrose Hill.
Not far from Regents Park itself, Primrose Hill is a gorgeous viewpoint that looks out over the whole of London. Going in fall was probably the best decision I’ve made in a long time; those gorgeous colours just looked breath-taking amongst the famous London skyline.
I do love winter and getting festive, but I’m sure going to miss fall.
So although Summer is technically not here yet, it has been scorching hot for London in the last week.
I’ve been feeling extra ‘summer-y’ lately, so figured I’d do a little post full of summery-ness. On the weekend, it was hotter than Ibiza and Las Vegas. As a Londoner, I’m not used to this much sunshine, so we had to make the most of it and spend the entire day outside.
We headed to Richmond Park, which is right down the road to me. I am so lucky to be living near this gorgeous park, and it is a park everyone should definitely consider heading to on the next hot day.
We took our handy picnic basket packed with food and drinks, and headed towards Richmond Park, Roehampton gate entrance. You can take and park your car for free, or take a walk if you live close by, and set up a space for the day in any area of the park.
It is the biggest Royal Park in London, so there’s plenty of spots to choose from.
By Roehampton gate entrance, there’s a gorgeous stream that runs through the middle so we spend the day on this stunning little spot.
As the day went on, temperatures reached up to 30 degrees Celcius. Some people were taking refreshing dips in the rivers, and herds of deers would wander by on the other side of the river as we sat in the sun.
Strawberries, cream, Pimms cider and sunshine… Pretty much a perfect combo to me.
How are you spending the summer days so far?
