10 family friendly places to enjoy in London

I initially wrote this blog post for a fellow blogger’s blog but I thought time had come for me to post on my own blog the updated version.

I love exploring, it probably comes from my own parents who were great at exposing us to a variety of places and taking us on various trips in France and abroad. Since moving to England more than 10 years ago I have done my fair share of exploring. Now, as a mum of 3 I am delighted to share with you my favourite family friends spots in London.

Wether you are a mum/dad, an auntie/uncle or a grandparent, I can guaranty you will find a nice place to visit in this list. They have all been tested and approved by myself and I’m picky;)

Diwali, festival of lights/Diwali, le festival indien des lumières

🇬🇧 Being a photography student, I’m always on the look out for fun, unique, colourful events in London to visit.

🇫🇷 Depuis que je suis devenue une étudiante en photographie je suis, peut être encore plus qu’avant, à la recherche d’événements colorés, sympas ou uniques qui feraient de bons sujets pour ma pratique de la photo sur Londres.

A fantastic day enjoying London Open House

Last weekend was the London Open House 2016 edition. This is a super exciting event in the capital where you get a chance to access buildings that are not generally opened to the public. The list of venues is incredible and somehow sometimes a bit overwhelming but worth spending a bit of time reviewing it.

Enjoying my local area/Profitons de nos quartiers

🇬🇧 It’s always so tempting to head to exotic places and only get excited at the sight of new amazing sites. I love travelling with an enormous passion but I think it’s important not to take for granted what we have got, sometimes on our doorstep.

That said, a couple of weeks ago, I decided to head to one of my local Farmers’ markets. The market is situated in Barnes, a very charming part of London (south west). The Farmers’ market is more a group of gourmet and delicatessen sellers but good fun nonetheless. I wanted to practise my photography more, capture colourful scenes and I was not disappointed.

I made my way from our place on foot keen to enjoy a good stroll and look around me. I love all those colourful doors in the UK, it really brightens the landscape, especially since the weather is not always that good. All the roses seem in bloom so it’s a nice sight all around.

50 shades of pink/Variations en rose

🇬🇧 It’s that time of the year when this little pocket in the heart of Richmond Park in London – the Isabella Plantation – becomes a very very special place. A sight that I have seen nowhere else. Basically the place becomes a flowers paradise where all shades of pink can be spotted! It’s simply stunning.

🇫🇷 C’est l’époque de l’année ou cette petite enclave dans le coeur du parc de Richmond – la ‘The Isabella Plantation’ – située en proche banlieue londonienne (sud-ouest de la capitale) se transforme en un lieu enchanteur ou se mêlent mille et une variations de rose. Les azalées sont en fleur et ce lieu devient totalement magique, c’est vraiment grandiose!
