Stockwell - London’s home of geniuses
Stockwell is a district of Lambeth, inner south London. For much of its history, the area was the grounds of a private manor just outside of the city, and was developed into a fashionable middle-class suburb over the 19th century. It’s been home to two prolific artists; Arthur Rackham, and Vincent Van Gough, who completed 87 Hackford Road while living in Stockwell.
Pamper yourself at Kensington and Chelsea
Kensington and Chelsea is an affluent Royal borough in inner London, and the smallest borough in the city. Here, visitors can explore a range of delectable restaurants and niche, independent boutiques like VV Rouleaux and Designer’s Guild, alongside interesting arts venues like the Saatchi Gallery and Royal Court theatre. Relatively quiet compared to the city centre, this is the perfect part of London to unwind and pamper yourself.
Find anything on Portobello Road
One of London’s most unique and varied market streets, Portobello Road’s reputation truly precedes it. Operating on Saturdays, the antiques section at the south end of the market is the largest anywhere in the UK. Aside from that, you’ll be able to find fresh fruit and vegetables, delicious street food, and vintage clothes, all surrounded by the road’s many independent shops.
