September in London, Londoness Loves

Londoness Loves September 2018

Covent Garden in a day

Covent Garden is London’s living theatre, a canvas of the city’s enchanting past and its immersive present.

The 100 works which have been stuffed into the Palace’s Ball Supper Room were personally chosen by the Prince from the Royal Collection, the result of which is a…

Victorian Afternoon Tea at the V & A Museum

The Victorian Afternoon Tea at the Victoria and Albert Museum had me at seed cake. These two words always bring my childhood back in a whoosh of nostalgia wrapped in a cocoon of Englishness. If seed cake was good enough for Bilbo Baggins and his Unexpected Party, then it’s good enough for Londoness. And thanks…
