You can’t get bored in London, there’s always something new popping up and you probably can visit something every day for years without having to go to the same place twice. Still, there are some things I would like to revisit at some point.
I whisked myself away to Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour way back in 2013 and they’ve added a lot new sets since then. And now I’ve actually watched all of the movies, a visit is long overdue. I might need to re-visit around Christmas too so I can catch the temporary festival wonders of ‘Hogwarts in the Snow’ .
I’ve been to all the big London museums multiple times, because you simply can’t see everything in one visit. But one museum I’ve never returned to is Tate Britan. But having recently I’ve gotten into Bacon…the painter Francis Bacon that is, and since Tate Britain holds one of the biggest collections of his art I think I really need to head to Pimlico. Also, it’s free, so there are no excuses left.
Eltham Palace is one of my favourite London places and I have so many photos of my visit that I feel like I can revisit every corner digitally. But when I visited they were in the midst of repairing the map room: yes… an actual room where the couple planned their trips and I must go and see it. Because like self-proclaimed traveller, I’ve always dreamt of my own beautiful, exquisitely detailed map wall.
Not that I’ll ever own a place which space for a map room, mainly because of my love for the occasional smashed avocado and scrambled eggs. I once made it into Granger & Co and I’ve been dreaming of their tastiest scrambled eggs ever since. I honestly think I’ve might over romanticised it, so I must go and test the reality. Sadly, there has always been a giant queue and I haven’t been THAT desperate yet.
My first visit to Kew Gardens was maeh as it wasn’t the right season yet, so the place wasn’t in bloom, the Temperate House wasn’t open and the giant pagoda was closed and covered in scaffolding. It would be nice to see it in full action so at some point when I am over the stress of my previous visit I would like to give it another try.
