There’s nothing better than a morning walk around the park when it’s still calm and peaceful in the morning. We planned to have breakfast at Serpentine Bar & Kitchen, a gorgeous place on the eastern edge of the Serpentine in Hyde Park, so we decided to walk all the way from our hotel. It took us about 45 minutes, but we stopped multiple times to enjoy the view and also feed a couple of squirrels and ducks! There were also so many beautiful parakeets, crows and swans roaming around the place and posing for photographs!
We arrived at the restaurant absolutely famished and I practically devoured the huge bowl of porridge! The place is absolutely gorgeous, with a superb view of the lake, where you can enjoy watching the sun glinting off the water, pedalos pottering about and flocks of birds taking a morning bath.
We planned to spend the afternoon at the Science and Natural History museums, with a coffee stop in-between. I love the Natural History museums SO MUCH! There’s just something about the place that makes me feel welcome and at home. You can lose yourself for hours amongst the many exhibits, from enormous dinosaurs to tiny water creatures. You can honestly travel millions of years in the few hours that you spend there. I absolutely love the infamous Hintze Hall with the blue whale skeleton suspended from the ceiling. It is absolutely humbling to see such beautiful and enormous creatures and you become keenly aware of how small we really in comparison.
For our coffee-stop we went to Hummingbird bakery just a few minutes away from the museums. I’ve been collecting their recipe books for years so I was honestly excited to taste their infamous cupcakes. P.S. They were exquisite.
It was about 5 pm when we were done with our visits and naturally we were absolutely famished! A friend of ours recommended this gorgeous bistro in the heart of South Kensington and since were only a few minutes away, we decided to check it out. Muriel’s Kitchen is such a wonderful place that honestly serves the best pumpkin soup I’ve ever tasted! The interior design is on point, filled with plants and contemporary decor. I would highly recommend it!
Our evening was spent shopping at Oxford street and we ended our day with a huge serving of fish&chips!
