Living in a large city with so much going on is a blessing and a curse. Central London is home to pretty much any shop you could ever want to visit, as well as the best restaurants, theatres, galleries and sights, so it is easy to forget that some of the loveliest parts of the city are hidden around the edges.
One of my favourite days of this year involved hopping on a quick train to Crystal Palace Park to see the hilarious misshapen dinosaur statues. South London boasts some of the nicest parks and best views of the skyline, Greenwich market is a cute day out and a great place to take visiting parents, and there’s Kew Gardens out in Richmond (about half an hour out of central London) which are lovely all year round. And all that without the draining (and usually expensive) experience of being in the vicinity of Oxford Street.
A short walk along the Thames Path from Greenwich leads to rugged little beaches like this one – the Thames is as far from white sand and clear waters as you can get and we definitely saw some MASSIVE EELS bobbing around in the water on this day, but it still makes for something interesting and different to do in London. Being here to shoot with Jordan has very much inspired me to explore more little corners of this vast place – do you have any favourite hidden London spots?
