So as we’re nearing December, which obviously means CHRISTMAS IS GETTING CLOSER, I decided to do a little post about a few of my favourite autumn spots in London. Living in a city where you have something new happening everyday can be overwhelming, but also exciting, and what’s even better is a city that embraces the new season. There are many well-known spots in London – Covent Garden, Oxford Street and Leicester Square, just to name a few – but there are so many other little gems all around London which are beautifully decorated during this time of the year.
Our First stop has to be Notting Hill, with its colourful houses, quaint mews and the buzz of the market on Portobello Road. Notting hill has always been one of my favourite places in London, if it’s for a stroll along Portobello Road Market or a stop at one of the many coffee shops, I love spending my days off just exploring every hidden nook. Honestly you can walk around Notting Hill during any season, but there is something about seeing the houses decorated for Halloween or the leaves turning burnt red that makes autumn in Notting Hill absolutely magnificent.
If you’re looking for a cute pink café in London than Peggy Porschen is definitely the place you have to visit. I’m not going to get into too much details because there is a blog post about Peggy’s coming very soon, but I will say that if you are ever in London. Peggy’s autumnal/Halloween display with the pastel pink pumpkins and glittery pink skulls, is a must see and if you have the time definitely stop for a coffee and one of their yummy cupcakes (my favourite is the red velvet). The café isn’t very big and can get very busy on, so there may be a bit of a wait, but definitely worth it.
There are so many cute spots around London, especially during the autumn/winter time but my new favourite is Kynance Mews. Tucked away in south-west London, Kynance mew is a perfect spot for that autumnal gram or even a little stroll, I would recommend you go during mid-October when the leaves are a lovely burnt red/orange colour.
Tulleys PYO Farm (Just outside London) is a perfect place for a bit of pumpkin fun, if that’s picking some for decoration or just as a day out. This year was my first time ever going to a pumpkin farm, and honestly I had a blast, even if we didn’t actually pick up any pumpkins. Pumpkin picking is definitely a must for the autumn season, and if you’re anything like me apparently piling pumpkins on top of each other and getting very muddy in the process is also a lot of fun. But seriously, PYO pumpkins farms are a lot of fun and I would recommend you go visit one next year.
I know it’s nearly Christmas, and I can’t wait to share some very festive Christmas posts with you (VERY SOON ARGHHH) but I also love autumn, as you might have guessed, and I had so much fun writing this post and sharing all my autumnal pictures and I hope you enjoyed reading it too. If there any posts you would like me to write please don’t hesitate to drop me message.
Have a lovely week!
Love Sharuni xx
