We’ve had an unusually long and glorious spell of sunshine and warmth in London so why not explore this new part of London!
Here’s our recipe for a summer weekend in Nine Elms and Vauxhall:
Better start with a good brunch:
Then how about one of the local parks to enjoy some sunshine?
Greenery is good for you; it’s what brings life to the neighbourhoods and there are plenty of spots to check out as we get more #sunkissed. The newly opened Nine Elms Pavilion is a great spot to enjoy some river views or the SkyStation by Riverlight is another option to soak in the blue skies.
And maybe a spot of culture: Migration Museum or Garden Museum
The Migration Museum at The Workshop tells the stories of movement to and from Britain in engaging ways. They have an adventurous programme of exhibitions, events and education workshops just off Albert Embankment. Open Wednesdays to Sundays, from 11am to 5pm, this is a very neat space.
The Garden Museum, on Lambeth Palace Road, was set up to save an abandoned church and garden where the famous gardener John Tradescant is buried. The space explores and celebrates the British heritage of gardening and contains a fascinating collection as well as temporary exhibitions.
