The London Diaries: A New Series & A Little Life Update

I’ve harped on enough about it, but I’m super duper excited to be living in London for the summer. Having spent the last year in Surrey, with a train into London taking less than 30 minutes, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with our capital city. With W interning in Battersea and my contract being extended in said Surrey town we decided to go for it – and grabbed a short-term let in Wandsworth.

Hopefully more blogging events for me too! Having looked at my list I realised I could get posts scheduled up until October without any spontaneous ones, without any London ones, so I’ve decided to introduce a mini series whilst we’re in London. It will be full of things I’ve done, where we’ve been etc. Hopefully useful to those visiting London, or those who want to find things off the beaten track. And typically the first post next Friday is of a chain restaurant found in other cities… #sorrynotsorry

Are you a fan of London? Any recommendations of hidden gems to explore?Β

    London’s great! I recommend walking along the canal from Little Venice to Camden. Lovely in the summer! https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/see-and-do/routes/little-venice-to-camden-circular-walk

    • ninegrandstudent

      I think I’ve done part of this walk before, but I’m definitely planning on doing it again! x
