Favourite walking spots/green spaces

It seems that those that are not native to the city assume that all the city has to offer are high rise buildings road after road. That is not wholly the case. From Hyde Park to Regent's Park there are a plethora of green spaces on offer that can take you away from the busy, hectic city life.

Below, highlights one of my favourite local spot in North London to go for a long walk or a jog. The endless fields can really clear your mind and is great way to wind down.






Here, is the popular Primrose Hill. You feel a real sense of achievement when you reach the top - it's nearly 63 metres above sea level! There's one heck of a view at the summit, you get to see a great skyline of London including The Shard, Cheese Grater and BT Tower. Nearby, there is an array of boutique shops such as Graham and Green and great places to eat like the Greenberry CafĂ©, which incidentally do the greatest maple syrup glazed bacon #mouthwatering !!!



 


What are you favourite walking spots and green spaces?

Winter Lights - Canary Warf

On a chilly Thursday evening my sister and I ventured to Canary Warf to check out the annual lights festival. Needless to say, we were not disappointed! It was a stunning collection by a variety of different artists and designers from all over the world, my favourite piece being the Lumen presents Passage by the French, Bonjour Interactive Lab. This interactive piece seemed to be a hit with many, the general public waited patiently in line to stand on a spot where they were scanned, then seeing themselves transformed in 3D pixel picture. If you had more time, you could definitely create a few memorable silhouettes!

Another favourite, was the Liter of Light by Mick Stephenson, I thought it was so cool how he got kids involved in producing such a colourful and eye catching installation.

Sadly, this festival only runs once a year in January, however I will definitely be back next year to see what would be on offer.
