Take a stroll down St Lukes Mews, this picturesque square is filled with quaint pastel  houses  and you’ll struggle to feel like you’re not in a coastal town in the south of France. This Mews is most well known for it’s part in film Love Actually. Keep your eyes peeled for Colin Firth!

After all that walking why not stop by our favourite coffee spot, Farm girl cafe. With their menu offering up tasty treats such as strawberry salads and Rose Lattes. If you’re feeling adventurous why not try their signature coconut bacon BLT, but careful this cafe is doggy friendly so you might end up sharing!

If vintage is more your bag and you fancy a little retail therapy pop by Rellik underneath Trellick tower. This independently owned vintage Mecca is ideal for those unique designer pieces and retro  treasures.
