- 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…
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.
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. You can read my full review on Boutique Travel Blog.

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.
