We are finally abandoning the bewildering winter climate, which seemed to last forever, and the capital is about to flourish with new openings, festivals, exhibitions and events for our enjoyment.
Spring in London: here’s a list of the most interesting things to do in the coming months throughout the city.
Walking in the parks
A must to do in London is definitely a walk in the parks: in the Kensington area there is for example the Kyoto Garden, a Japanese-style garden created in 1991 and immersed in the green of Holland Park, the most elegant and romantic London park, which offers waterfalls, stone bridges and ponds with Koi carp.
At Kew Gardens there is an interactive path between narcissus and crocus in the frame of the botanical gardens. It is also possible to plan guided tours, learn more about its history and discover the seasonal floral species, and Easter traditional chocolate egg hunt.
Another fascinating destination is the John Madejsky Garden, in the heart of the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Canal boat trip – from Little Venice to Camden
There are few things more relaxing than spending time on a boat caressed by the rays of the sun as you travel through the capital. The trips begin in Paddington Basin, in Little Venice and follow the canal, passing through Regent’s Park, up to Camden Town.
One of the most anticipated festivals of the capital, a true MUST GO for all lovers of indie music and electronics.
In the line-up there are names like Django Django, Violets Palma and Bat for Lashes. Obviously there is an endless list of Djs that will play during the day.
Rent a bike in Richmond Park
Richmond Park, the largest park in London – many erroneously think the largest is Hyde Park but this is not the case. Richmond Park is home to hundreds of deer and fallow deer, as well as a series of cycle paths aimed at guiding you towards exploring the park.
As the first ray of sun comes up and the weekend is approaching, the English are activated in two different ways: those who prepare the barbecue to take to the park and those who get on the first train to Brighton!
A place full of fun, where it is possible to eat the best fish and chips, if you are in London between spring and summer you cannot avoid taking a leap, take a train and in less than an hour you will be at the coast.
