London has eight amazing Royal Parks. Â My choice on a cold, crisp, sunny autumn day was Kensington Palace in Kensington Gardens; very close to where I first lived and worked in London. Â This Palace is always enchanting and they are currently preparing for some super events starting with decorating the palace for The Victorian Christmas exhibition (Queen Victoria's childhood home) Â You will find lantern-making, tasty talks and carols tailored for tiny explorers, families and anyone else who is searching for a little magic and sparkle over the holiday season. Â In 2017 I'm excited to hear about the Diana 'her fashion story' exhibition in February and later 'White Garden' a presentation of stunning spring flowers in the gardens inspired by memories of the her life. Â That's in the dreamy diary!
Many years have passed since the world laid flowers for her at the entrance to Kensington Palace but I enjoyed another walk to Diana's Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park and then along to the Serpentine. Â It was delightful to amble along with my camera but many were biking and some were using a Santander Cycle Hire bike......... Â Another way to see the parks are through Fat Tire Bike Tours.Â who tailor a trip according to your particular interest. Â After three hours in the Park (with a cappuccino stop in the Palace with what seemed to be, one third of Italy), I opted for a steaming bowl of broth at Bone Daddies in the Whole Foods market on Kensington High Street.
