Out and about this weekend? With winter stubbornly holding on with no sign of easing up! Wind, rain or shine! Whatever the weather it’s good to get out and about and enjoy life all the same right?
Last weekend with a trusted friend we embraced the elements and went on a lovely, long walk. The weather was not on our side! It rained pretty much the whole day! But hey we still did it, got out and about, enjoyed it and have some awesome pictures to share as a result.
LOCAL ADVENTURES & EXPLORING – LONDON SUBURBS
Living in the suburbs of London and being an absolute nature lover; nothing beats getting out and about, simply walking or exploring new places. Generally just being outside! Is definitely one of my favourite kinds of days out! We walked to a place called Petersham nurseries located in Richmond, UK.
For those not here in the UK or have never heard of Richmond? It’s an area in a South Western Suburb of London, with a massive park located in the borough of (Richmond upon Thames). As the name would suggest located by the River.
The park was created by ‘’Charles I in the 17th century as a deer park. The largest of London’s Royal Parks, it is of national and international importance for wildlife conservation.’’ This is one of my favourite parts & parks in London and fancy a day out and about? Or up for a long walk? I doubt you’d be disappointed and may even be greeted by a deer or few along the way!
If in London and up for a days worth of walking, out and about with a few stops along the way for some lunch even a bit of shopping in an eclectic and quirky environment?
Look no further than Richmond, Petersham Nurseries. This place is a must if in town! Being a nursery in the sense they sell all kinds of plants & bits for the garden. Yet, it doesn’t end there! With beautiful store inside selling all kinds of accessories for the home, a tea house & main dining area catering to different budgets and occasions its all very charming!
Everything about this place is just simply enchanting, I especially love how well they have worked to balance the natural elements of the outside & carefully integrated these to the inside. C
an you imagine how wonderful on a summer evening it would be to sit here? Have a few drinks and some food – the food was also amazing by the way & the theme of it this tea-house is that of an actual greenhouse – yet for humans 🙂
More interested in the shops? Looking for something a bit quirky for the home or just to window shop and get inspired? Each section has been so beautifully designed, creating little settings / room environments as you go around. It’s all so inspirational, unique and makes me long for a massive house that I can design and dress up exactly how I want!
When It comes to the weekends how do you enjoy spending your time? I guess where the weeks are so hectic juggling work and general life when it comes to my two days off I like to spend them doing something that helps me reconnect, inspire my mind! This makes me feel so good! I find by the time Monday does comes around again (only always that bit too soon!) I’m ready to tackle whatever the new week throws at me!
