Autumn in London possibly has to be one of my favourite things. The weather is not yet unbearably cold and the streets are littered with an array of orangey leaves. Despite being known as one of the more expensive boroughs, Kensington has plenty of free activities you can enjoy, especially on a somewhat cold autumn day.

 

The Victoria & Albert Museum: I find it almost impossible to take a trip to Kensington without stopping off at the V&A. Not only is the architecture beautiful, but there are also so many amazing galleries to visit varying from fashion, design to Greek sculptures. I would recommend heading there in the next few weeks to ensure you have time to visit the beautiful Freida Kahlo exhibition.

 

The Natural History Museum: As one of my all-time favourite museums, this place is a must on anyone’s to-do list. The Natural History Museum can be enjoyed by people of all ages and contains so much interesting information. You can learn about anything from the human body to a giant three-toed sloth. Not only is the building one of the most beautiful in London (in my personal opinion) but during the winter months the giant Christmas tree and ice skating rink as definitely going to get you in the Christmas spirit. 

 

Harrods (& their food hall): If you have not yet visited Harrods (what have you been doing with your life?) then you must definitely visit their food hall. With counters filled with exquisite looking foods from all over the world, you are bound to find a delicacy you have not get tried before. If branching out of your comfort zone food wise is not your thing, you can’t forget that there is there a chocolate cafe which is located within Harrods.

 

Laduree: Being one of the most famous macaroon shops in the world, it’s not surprising that they have a location in Kensington. Although it is a bit pricey, Laduree would be the perfect place to visit for a special occasion. Imagine being greeted with a colourful display of this delicate French dessert. 

 

Bluebird Chelsea: Known as a popular hangout spot for the Made in Chelsea cast, you can be assured that this place has to be good. Again, although the menu can be a little pricey, this place is the perfect hangout for a weekend brunch and who knows, maybe you’ll even spot a celeb?

 

Kensington Gardens: One of the royal gardens, these gardens are the perfect place to take an autumn stroll. Why not take a walk around the Serpentine river and stop and admire the Princess Diana statue?
