Chiswick offers a lot of variety for a day out making it little surprise it is such a popular place to live. When we recently visited we wanted to cram all of the best features into one day. There is a lot of walking but it is well worth it.
Bloomsbury has the highest concentration of grassy squares in the world with the likes of Tavistock Square and Russell Square within a few minutes walk. Throw in a few museums and some notable publishing sites and there is plenty for a fantastic day out.
One of our favourite parts of the city has to be the area around Hampton Court along the south west section of the Thames Path. With plenty to see along the river up to Teddington, Twickenham, Kingston and Richmond you'll have a cracker of a day out.
The famous Bermondsey Beer Mile and Millwall Football Club are both notorious in the area. However, there is much more to explore including several excellent foodie markets. Add in the Thames views and you are on to a winner.
Leytonstone is the home to our favourite tube stop, purely because of the Alfred Hitchcock inspired mosaics adorning the walls. The area has some good places to eat and plenty of green space to explore.
Stoke Newington or 'Stokie' to locals really surprises us every time we visit. Never getting much of a mention being a near neighbour of the flavours of the month Hackney and Dalston, Stokie offers so much.
The Covent Garden piazza is always teaming with people dipping in and out of the shops or admiring the stalls and street entertainment. The number of people can put you off so our guide to Covent Garden tries to take in the quieter spots.
Hoxton is a curious little place that many Londoners will find it hard to pinpoint. To the North of Shoreditch and The City, and near the current hotspots of Dalston and Hackney, Hoxton offers a varied day out.
Camden is notorious for throngs of visitors to the market and the lock with a lively bar scene too. We have based this day out on the slightly quieter side of Camden, combining a canal walk with the views from Primrose Hill before ending back in busy Camden Market.
Notting Hill is one of London's most iconic neighbourhoods with people coming from far and wide to take in the tree lined streets with picture perfect colourful houses. We love finding the quirks of Notting Hill and there are plenty of things to see off the beaten track.
It is amazing that one street possesses so much colour, love and vibrancy. Carnaby Street is the hub of fashion two minutes from both Oxford and Piccadilly Circus. Everywhere you look is something to marvel at. Join our Tramble to make sure you don't miss the best bits.
Perhaps best known for the interchange on the Northern Line, if you explore more of Kennington you will find a number of hidden treasures. Our Tramble loop from Kennington to Cleaver Square, a few minutes away from the underground, takes in the best of the area.
Walthamstow has undergone a regeneration over the past few years, attracting a lot of modern bars and eateries. Combine this will a street art scene and some under-rated outside space and you have all the ingredients for a good day out in an undiscovered area.
Beyond Herne Hill is the sleepy neighbourhood of Dulwich which houses the famous Dulwich Picture Gallery and Dulwich College. East Dulwich, once considered the less popular end, has enjoyed a recent resurgence and is now a well-to-do area with plenty of pubs and foodie hotspots to enjoy.
The City encompasses nearly three square kilometres stretching to the west near to Temple Station, up to Chancery Lane, past the Barbican and Liverpool Street to the north and to Aldgate but not Brick Lane to the East.
The sheer scale of this means that we have very little chance of being able to tell you every single thing to do. However, we will try and tell you some of our favourite spots and things to do.
Unless you live out in the South East of London, it is unlikely that you will get out to visit the Thames Barrier. It is a shame because, apart from being an architectural marvel, the walk back to Greenwich sees the industrial history of the area compete with modern communities. we have a Tramble from the barrier to Greenwich, but it would be equally good on bikes stopping at the riverside pubs on the way.
If we were rating our favourite parks in London it would be difficult to not put Victoria Park at the top. The place has everything - canals, mini golf, a selection of fine pubs and by several markets. And on top of that Hackney is minutes away for street art and other interesting bars.
Glossy Kensington has much to offer as one of the most elegant areas in London. Best known for Kensington Palace or the Royal Albert Hall, it also offers an amazing number of hidden mews and beautiful houses. It is the perfect place to traipse around if you want to get some house envy!
We have bundled Angel and Islington into one blog post. This post will cover the area around Angel and the canal as well as the area to the north of Highbury and Islington. We uncover a few gems, some street art which makes for an awesome day exploring.
The resurgence of Peckham has been unstoppable over recent years with people flocking to the arty bars and the fantastic green spaces. We are clearly no different and here is our day in Peckham with plenty of things to do and see.
