This is another hidden gem in London, on the list of my favs in London. BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir or more known as ‘Neasden Temple’.
Huge Hindu temple is so peaceful inside. It has a very beautiful exhibition inside that teaches basics of Hinduism, the oldest living religion in the world, their love to animals, human-beings, nature.
In the temple you can get familiar see their daily ceremonies, rituals, observe Sanskrit.
Free entry and opened to people of all faiths and backgrounds. 🏡

We believe George VI may have been on to something when he proclaimed: “It is not the walls that make the city, but the people who live within them.” Londoners, in their brilliant variety and dissimilitude, are the lifeblood of this fair metropolis. Let us take a moment to acknowledge those who work tirelessly to ensure the city’s reputation for fine goods and and fine service remains without equal across the world. Pick up a copy of the Penhaligon’s Times to read more about the valuable Little Known Londoners who are truly the unsung custodians of heritage in this vibrant city. Also available online via link in bio.

Benvenuti nella grigia Londra...
Pensare che qualche tempo fa era una città 'fumo di Londra .... cupa, triste e poco attrattiva...
Si può sempre migliorare....
E non vi dico i dolci.... che bontà....

I’m really into exploring London’s Chinatown recently. There are pockets of rejuvenation and snack joints with refreshingly young appeal right alongside really curious places that caught me by surprise. I’m grateful for the interruption of bright colours in the Westend.

Grand Gothic mausoleum of the Hollond family, built in 1867. The ruined church dates from 1632, and its architectural style is a rare one – one reason why the ruin is so precious. #ruins #church #churchruins #17thcentury #photography #englishheritage #architecture #gothic #gothicarchitecture #mausoleum #gravestone #burialground #graveyard #indigojones #churchyard #buriedtreasure #headless #angel #cherub #haunted #cross #decay #cemetery #hiddenlondon #dark #bats #atmosphere

#hiddenLondon - a piece of mysterious paradise in @londonse1

There is nothing like beautiful cake with beautiful people or in this case cats... 🐈
Whenever there is a special occasion or family/friends visiting London I always go to @thisisacoffeeshop_ as it has a special place in my heart as its a quirky, British, cat filled paradise.
*
Also it was the first vegan cake shop that I went to in London and I fell in love with their naughty but nice treats.
*
Please give the place a visit guys as it’s a lovely little treasure in London (one of the waiters is cute too 😉)

Another 'Hidden London' walk ticked off. Little alleyways and big monuments in the east City. Doorway to the Brontë's publisher, old pubs and the first coffee house in London.

The Barbican is an oasis of green in the concrete City of London.
I always gravitate here when I have some time to kill before a train or if I need a place with good WiFi, coffee, and little pretension.
It’s so strange because I always think of Georgian townhouses or sprawling Regency halls in my minds eye when I need a bit of escapism, but burgundy bricks and brutalist tower blocks cause this overwhelming sense of calm in me that I can’t quite explain.
I have, on numerous occasion, used a tote bag as a pillow and fallen asleep on the warm bricks outside next to the fountains with a book; neglected and trepidatiously close to the water.
We all need places like this. Places that demand nothing from us and give us a sanctuary in a city that is so often insistent, loud, and brash.
(Also there are terrapins that live in the conservatory)

Monday and back to the city and the spectacular 20th century Guildhall Art Gallery which fits in seamlessly next to the main Guildhall building which dates back to the mere 1400s. Old & new is London’s go to architectural move.

All my magical dreams came true when I took part in my own potions class at @thecauldronpub in Stoke Newington. For the 1hr 45min lesson you wear a robe a wave a wand. You’ll feel every inch the witch or wizard as you concoct your magical potions. If you want to read all about it and see some more photos it’s up on my blog now. The link is in my bio if you fancy it. Does this sound like it would be up your (diagon)ally? .

The bustling metropolis of London is home to scores of unusual and unique places and spaces. In these two volumes, author David Long guides us off the beaten path, revealing the very best of the capital's extraordinary buildings and strangest places, some of which are passed by every day, hidden in plain sight. Take a sideways look at England's capital - it's London, but not as you know it...

Spiralling outta control! This staircase which looks down from one of Battersea Power Station’s beautiful penthouses is modelled on the exact size of one of its famous white chimneys. An architect’s dream! 🌪️

Here is the instafamous pink door that is most popular when the tree next to it is in bloom. Which I was completely unaware of when I took the picture (and I don’t even think I noticed the tree at all 🙈🌳). Oops!

Hidden away, under a grey oil refinery is the perfect beach date. Fulham Beach Club brings the beach to an otherwise typically grey London day! Whilst your toes get sandy, you can sip on frozen margaritas and get chatting to your better half. Alternatively, take part in a game of sliders and mini golf to break the ice for first timers! #feedthedate

Nestled next to the Thames, our glorious, award-winning #gardens are a stunning oasis of flora and fauna that are as peaceful as they are welcoming. Take a stroll at #lunchtime or stop by for a #picnic and soak up the sun in seclusion #HiddenLondon #history

On my last trip up to London I stopped by this house museum in Chelsea, where the writer, essayist and historian Thomas Carlyle lived with his wife Jane for almost 50 years. (He was also the founder of #thelondonlibrary.) They moved here in 1834. At the time, he described the area as “unfashionable” and they rented this house for just £35 a year (!). Pictured here is the back garden, where they grew flowers and vegetables. Thomas and Jane appear to have had a rather unconventional relationship, and their letters make for interesting reading. Some of Carlyle’s biographers claim the union was never consummated and in any case they had no issue. Today the house is owned and run by the National Trust. It’s the only opportunity most of us will ever have to see inside a home in what is now one of London’s most exclusive residential neighbourhoods.
