When the trees shed their leaves of red, yellow & orange, when the days grow colder & the nights grow longer, crisp misty mornings and cold windy nights, Summer bids goodbye & Autumn says hello. A new season begins.
Autumn is without a shadow of a doubt my favourite season. Although London is a vibrant cosmopolitan city with a mixture of old architectural buildings right next to futuristic skyscrapers, London has managed to still keep a lot of its green public spaces which look great during the autumn season.
Here are a few of the best autumnal spots in London.
Kyoto Garden, Holland Park
The Japanese Kyoto Garden within Holland Park is my favourite discovery of 2017. It’s worth the visit at any time of the day but especially for morning walks through Holland Park when it’s just you and mother nature. The garden is an explosion of autumn colours and a great spot for quiet reflection.
Stretching from Paddington down to Camdam Lock, the canals of Little Venice is great for an afternoon stroll admiring the narrowboats docked alongside. There are also a number of cafes and restaurants along the way for a relaxing spot to wind down the day.
One of London’s largest Royal parks, Hyde Park is positioned right in the middle of the city. There are some great activities to do & see like visit Kensington Palace & Princess Diana memorial, row a boat across the serpentine lake, bike ride through the park or having a lovely picnic. And from the middle of November to January, Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland opens. There’s always something for everyone at Hyde Park.
