Old blue eyes Frank Sinatra and Tintin wanted to go there, whilst Constable, Turner and Kubrick were all infatuated with it. The moon has always held us in spellbinding fascination, as far back as the Ancient Mesopotamians. And over at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, you can go to the moon and beyond with…

things to do in London in November

Londoness Loves November 2019

London may be getting spruced up for Christmas, but we’ve still got a month to go before we descend into full-blown festive craziness. It’s time to banish the never-ending Brexit blues with some help from a culture-filled November in London. This month is all about the towering figures of art, history and legend with Leonardo,…

Londoness Loves October 2019

And now to my favourite time of the year and not because October is my birthday month. Let’s face it, this quinquagenarian’s foliage is looking a little tinged, and I would rather swing the clocks back a season or two, or even three. No, it’s the comforting smell of coal seeping out of the river…

Londoness Loves July 2019

As London prepares for tennis fever, I’m sticking to the non-sporty side of the city where you’ll see me hanging out in our cool museums and theatres or sitting lawnside, but with a Pimms in hand and listening to jazzy tunes.  Here are some of the best things to do in London this July. Stay…

London Season, Social Season, summer, things to do this summer in London, The Season

The London Social Season

The Chelsea Flower Show may officially kick-start the London Social Season, but for me, it’s the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy that gets summer in London off to a rip-roaring start. The world’s largest open submission art exhibition signals a tee off for strawberries and cream, cucumber sandwiches, Pimms and lemonade, racing hats, flowing…
