Frolicking at the Flower Show

Last year mum and I went to the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show to celebrate her birthday (read about that here) and this year we returned in a similar fashion.

This year it was the 25th anniversary of the show so there were quite a few birthday themed arrangements.

This year I felt that there was more shopping stalls than actual gardens but the show gardens were gorgeous.

Clearly the gardening fashion is for purple, white, yellow or orange to be mixed together.

Like last year children from local schools had made scarecrows, I particularly liked this rather plump viking.

There were also some lovely story book themed gardens which I especially liked.

And as always there were some just plain weird gardens.

I’m not the biggest fan of gardening – I don’t have the patience but I love going to the flower shows because its really quite impressive and beautiful what people can create.

5 Things To Do In London

London is my home town and if you want to learn all about the groovy hidden spots (that really aren’t that hidden) then Google has the answers but if you’re new to London and just want to hit up some great places then here are 5 that I personally love!

The London Aquarium

P1190875
Right by the River Thames is the London Aquarium bursting full of exotic fish, plants,reptiles and more. Perfect for taking the kids but also anyone who has a keen for photography – there are some great snaps waiting to be taken. Its not the cheapest trip out in London but there are some great vouchers and codes out there again Google is your friend!

The London Eye

P1200016

If you are new to London then a trip on The London Eye is the perfect way to view the entire city. Again it’s not the cheapest of attractions but the views are well worth it. Even as a Londoner I still find it breathtaking and would happily take another trip on the eye.

The Natural History Museum

P1190319

If you are more of a museum lover or need somewhere for a rainy day then The Natural History Museum is the place for you. I often visit when I’m just at a loose end but there are plenty of exhibitions going on all the time as well as the permanent collection – check out The Darwin Center if you want to see what goes on behind the scenes.

Harry Potter Studio Tour

A little out of central London is the Harry Potter Studio Tour and trust me this is not just for us Potter nerds. If you have any interest in the film industry then this is a perfect day out. Full of fun facts you can live out your dreams of going to Hogwarts-not just for kids adults love this as well!

Hampton Court

Again a little outside of London but this historic palace is an amazing sight seeing visit, perfect throughout the year the castle adapts with different events occurring throughout the year but again is a great place to visit even when there isn’t something extra exciting on – and don’t forget to get a cloak!
