1. I recently spent a wonderful weekend in London staying at the smart, Millennium Gloucester Hotel in South Kensington. You can read my review of the hotel, which I loved, on the Boutique Travel Blog but I’d also like to show you more about this lovely area of London itself. My photos will tell the story better than my words can…

Zack’s Deli on Gloucester Road, looked a great place for breakfast, lunch or cakes!

We enjoyed drooling over the lovely cars at Hexagon Classic’s
showroom in Reece Mews.

Quite by chance we stumbled upon one of London’s Farmer’s Markets held every Saturday from 9am to 2pm on Bute Street, a great place to pick up some delicious treats for a picnic in nearby Hyde Park.
Check out their website for details of others held around the city.

Best London Museum, Natural Hstory Museum

The stunning Natural History Museum, which I wrote about last week,
as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum, are just a short walk away.

All this on the doorstep of our lovely hotel, the Millennium Gloucester, which I’d certainly recommend. Not only is the hotel itself very smart and stylish, the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and it’s in a lovely area of London with many of the city’s attractions, such as the Natural History Museum just minutes away.

Travel Planning Resources


Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries. For UK residence, Alianz Assistance offers insurance for backpackers, as well as annual multi-trip cover and single-trip cover starting from £3.36.
