It’s that time again! Today I’m sharing my London Summer Bucket List with all the things I can’t wait to go see and do in possibly the best season of the year (yes, I’m saying that to all the seasons).
Eat All The Ice-Cream
Plan my weekends around the ice-cream places I want to visit. Chin Chin Labs, Badiani Gelato and Mamasons Dirty Ice Cream top that list, but I’m sure I can find another 10.
Cool Down In The Water
I won’t ever make it to the Sky Pool, so I’ll have to make do with dipping my toes in Hampstead Pond or Beckenham Place Park Lake, but a lido will do as well.
After Dark Museum Visit
I’ve been meaning to visit the London Transport Museum for a while and can’t think of a better time to go than during After Dark hours – aka when it’s as child free as can be.
Change My Hair
I’ve had these different shades of red for way too long now and am really looking forward to something new. I just need to figure out what colour I want. Or I might just chop it off. Maybe grow out my bangs? So many options!
Discover New Walks
Ones I didn’t know existed in and around London as well as some I’ve been holding off because they might be too muddy. There are also a few on the London – Sevenoaks train route that I need to complete as well.
Lock In Another Staycation
Day trips are nice and all, but to really escape the hustle and bustle you actually sometimes need to leave the city for at least 24 hours. There are so many spots to retreat to, but the ones that meet my requirements are all booked until the end of September. I’m on a few waiting lists, so let’s see if anything comes out of that.
Go To A Pick-My-Own Farm
This has been on so many of my Summer to-do lists and I haven’t made it to one yet. Once the one near me opens for the season, I will head there on an early Saturday morning and grab all the strawberries, raspberries and courgettes I can carry. I’ve freed up some space in my freezer, so there is absolutely no excuse.
Catch A Summer Sunrise
And yes, that means waking up at the crack of dawn and heading to a local viewing point for a – hopefully – breathtaking sunrise. And fingers crossed there’s no mist to get in the way of the vista.
