Spring is one of my favourite times of the year for me in England, it is the sign of the end of a long, drizzly and cold winter, a sign of new beginnings and hope. I tend to spend March anticipating the first signs of daffodils, for me, daffodils symbolise spring more than any other bloom! Once the daffodils are out, it’s just a short wait for the blossom and magnolia!
For those of you who are considering visiting London and don’t know what time to come, Spring is perfect if you want mild (sometimes unpredictable) temperatures, quieter streets, and lots of pink.
Despite what you might generally see on Instagram, I actually prefer East London to West. However, spring in the West is almost unbeatable, I would definitely recommend taking a day to enjoy the leafy streets of Notting Hill, Holland Park and south Kensington. there are lots of lovely, less well known cafes off of the main roads that you can pop into between the trees of blossom.
