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.

Londons farmers Market, Bute Street

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 Insurance

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.

When I’m travelling, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions. You can't beat a good food tour to introduce you to a new city!
