My Favourite London Boroughs

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of spending the weekend in London for my oldest girlfriend's wedding. Whilst there, we had a few hours at our our disposal so we hopped on and off the tube to a couple of places we loved. As my wife and I sat, taking in our surroundings, it occurred to us that when we're in London we always head to the same boroughs first before exploring elsewhere so I thought I'd share them with you today. 

CAMDEN

We always head to Camden first, that weekend was no different. Though the streets are always bustling with people, tourist and locals alike, there's just something so comforting about it. There's an endless stream of market stalls, undiscovered food joints and countless independent shops. We always head straight towards the market, grab a seat in Dingwalls and listen to the live music over a few drinks. If it's a nice day, we'll sit outside and watch the locks open and close whilst taking in everything around us. It's without a doubt our favorite.

ISLINGTON

Hands down, a new favourite.  We stayed here over the weekend so had plenty of opportunity to stroll around and take it all in. There's endless bars and restaurants all on one convenient street along with hidden gems, alleyways full of antiques and old favourites, like Byron. 

NOTTING HILL

I fell in love with Notting Hill before I'd even visited. As I expected, the prestigious townhouses, communal gardens and street markets were just like the movies and little did I know then that snacking on a crepe from Portobello Road Market would soon become one of my favourite London memories. It's such a beautiful borough to walk around and clear your mind but also has so much to offer in terms of quaint shops, brunch spots and so much greenery.

There are, of course, so many incredible places to visit in London and these are just a few of the great places we've enjoyed over the years. Other favourites include Green Park, St James' Park & Covent Garden. What are your London favourites?

How I'm Working My Way To The Laptop Lifestyle Through Travel

I'm a Travel Business Owner - ItsHollieAnn.com
After keeping quiet online for what feels like forever, I'm excited to announce that I've been building a business alongside ItsHollieAnn.com. 

As you know, I've spent so much time over the past few years planning travel for myself and my wife, giving out my best recommendations and being my friends and families go-go gal for all things travel, which I love. 

With this in mind, it was time to take the plunge and start turning what I do everyday for the people I love, into something that could benefit each and every one of you. 

I have now turned my love of travel into an income, freed up more time to do what I love and also help people like you do the same. It was something that made complete sense to me and will enable me to have the laptop lifestyle I've always dreamed of.

This really is the plunge I've been wanting to take for the longest time and I'm so happy to finally be on the path to the life I've always wanted to live. It really was a no brainer for me.
