An Afternoon in Primrose Hill

Primrose Hill is a great place to wander around and dream about what you would do if you won the lottery. It’s full of picture perfect mansions in pastel hues and immaculate gardens, that look great even on the grey and cloudy afternoon that I visited. The vibe is rich but bohemian and unfussy, with plenty of brunch spots and restaurants to choose from. So if you fancy a day outside of tourist crammed hotspots, and also outside of reality, Primrose Hill is great place to while away an afternoon.

Currently… Wanting skin with a glow

Lazy [Saturday] Afternoon: Broadway Market, London

So I’m back, after a particularly long break from blogging to focus on dissertation writing and finishing my degree. I have so many plans for this blog and I really can’t wait to get back into things. I especially want to make the most of London whilst I’m here, revisiting my favourite spots and also exploring new areas, and hopefully sharing all of these travel experiences with you.

This weekend it was all about relaxing after months of non stop university stress, so I headed down to Broadway Market, a great and relatively local-orientated market that has a nice, relaxed atmosphere and some seriously great food stalls. It also sells records, clothes, some beautiful art and crafts, and a whole range of other interesting things. This is not a budget friendly market, it’s most definitely a London market, so bring a full wallet as well as an empty stomach. However, if like me you’re a student, or just generally on a budget, there are some great, less expensive snacks to be had. The atmosphere alone is worth the trip, especially on sunny summer days.
