A few weeks ago, Krista from Londonelicious asked: what’s your idea of a perfect Saturday in London? The American girl who likes food and London but not cooking (which I still cannot understand) wined and dined her way around town in her inimitable style and wrote about it here in the post that kicked it all off.
I did a post in September on my perfect 12 hours in London (although not necessarily on a Saturday) which I thought fit the bill. Others quickly followed Krista’s lead, posting their idea of a perfect Saturday in London. The ideas are fairly varied, although a trip to Borough Market does seem to be a common theme (so what if it is a tourist trap, it’s also food heaven).
- ML at SPAstic, Tales from a London Spa takes you around South Kensington and Notting Hill for a culture-filled day that ends in Holland Park.
- Su-Lin at Tamarind & Thyme gets some culture AND shopping in as she trolls central London, with the riches she imagines.
- Two entries from Mini-et-moi, a great site for modern mums in London. Sarah takes in Marylebone and The London Transport Museum while Michelle explores the South Bank, tots in tow.
- Danielle at Bloody Brilliant starts with a full English and then heads east to explore Brick Lane and Spitalfields.
- Over at Gourmet Larder, Gregory begins his day in Borough and then works his way south through Clapham and Vauxhall.
- Leah from Curiosity and The Cupcake arrives at Broadway Market bright and early and then enjoys a leisurely stroll through Victoria Park and east London.
- Christine over at If Music Be The Food of Love has a musical slant to her day as she explores Hampstead and hits the town with her idol.
- Blogger Priyanka begins at Cafe au Lait in Brixton and ends her day at Meson De Felipe and The Beehive in Borough.
- Another blogger choosing to start around Borough Market. Helen at Food Stories kicks off her Saturday with a visit to Tower Bridge, wanders over to Borough and then ends her day with a visit to Shunt and by checking out Dinner in The Sky.
- Lizzie of Hollow Legs is very busy geographically and takes us through Blackheath, North Greenwich, Trafalgar Square, Belgravia, Shoreditch, Whitechapel, and then back to Shoreditch.
- Charles of London guide Tipped.co.uk and his own blog, Grumblemouse, spends his perfect day in Islington, The City, Borough Market, Greenwich, and Shoreditch.
- And finally, new-to-the-scene Liz (of Liz Does London, not to be confused with Lizzie above) hits Chelsea, Hyde Park, Notting Hill, and Parson’s Green.
Plenty of inspiration in all of that for London residents and visitors alike.Posted by: Cara on October 30th, 2008 No Comments »
