The Perfect Little Sunday in London

Sunday is always my favourite day of the week for exploring London. There’s an abundance of things to do and places to see, plus it’s often a little quieter than on a Saturday. My Sunday cost just £30 for three wonderful little meals and some eye-opening sights along the way.

There’s nowhere better to admire the beautiful architecture that London has to offer other than the borough of Kensington & Chelsea. The Boltons and Launceston Place are just a few of my favourite areas for walkabouts in London.

A late breakfast happened at Sweet Things in Notting Hill. I walked from Kensington and it was around a 45 minute walk. The onion marmalade & cheese toastie (£4.85) was perfect for an indulgent Sunday breakfast. You can choose your own fillings and mix & match.

Next, I got the Piccadilly line down to Leicester Square and walked to Covent Garden. Neal’s Yard is a beautiful little hideaway full of colour and cafes.

After this I stopped for lunch at Wildwood Cafe, minutes away from Neal’s Yard. Sundays are never very healthy days in my opinion so if a roast isn’t on the cards…something else equally as naughty probably will be!

After this I walked on up to the British Museum. Like many of the museums in London it’s free, so instead of splashing the cash on the Cinema or even vegging out in front of the TV like any other day, why not experience some cultural history at no expense to your wallet.

The British Museum offer scones (£8.50) and an lovely selection of cakes…in my opinion there is no better day of the week for scones and prosecco (£7.50). After all of this, I caught the tube home and curled up on the sofa with a glass of Malbec…Perfect!

I hope you all had a lovely Sunday! Comment on what you guys got up to 🙂

    I want your life! The pictures of London were marvelous. What a great combination: prosecco and scones! I will have to try it…especially at the British Museum. Cheers, Lori

      It’s the best combination! I think Sunday afternoon prosecco and cake should become a ritual…
