Two bank holidays in a month…. No doubt, May is coming. You will have plenty of time to discover and to enjoy what London has to offer. This month, we’ve made with Marine an eclectic selection where you could see us in our favourite playground. From art and flower exhibitions to open air theatre or Peckham Rye Festival, it’s time to plan your weekend activities. Welcome in May and welcome in London.
On a sunny Monday (it’s always better when it’s a workday), we headed with Charlotte to the Chelsea Harbour, a tiny marina, close to the Imperial Wharf station. To enjoy the view, choose the Chelsea Harbour Hotel, whose interest lies in its terrace. After that, pop in the Design Center, a building as interesting as the stores dedicated to the decoration and refurbishment it houses. Walking along the Thames (or trying to – unfortunately you have a lot of buildings in progress), you will reconnect with the famous Chelsea spirit, these small colored houses. Did I mention the famous painter Turner set his sights on the 119 Cheyne Walk? By chance, just in front of the famous river…sunset admirer forever. If you are a plant-savvy, push the doors of the Chelsea Physic Garden (as usual, all the links to the websites are in the main text), the 2nd oldest botanical garden in GB created in 1673. Then, leave for the Saatchi Gallery, the famous contemporary art Gallery where I always prefer the temporary exhibition rather than the permanent collection. For those who are fancy to do some trendy shopping, the King’s road should be the answer to the stores you look for. Have a nice Chelsea day!
