Designer sample sale – Beach Blanket Babylon

Past season favourites from a whole host of designers will be available at discounted prices at the Beach Blanket Babylon store in Brick Lane. Be sure to head down to the venue early to be in with the chance of getting the best pieces.


The other art fair

Bloomsbury’s Victoria House is hosting the artwork of over 120 talented and unique artists who are not currently represented by a gallery. Visitors will have the opportunity to interact directly with the artist and their work and will be treated to special guest Gavin Turk’s photographic series.


The British museum

In honour of St. George’s day, pay a visit to The British museum on Great Russell Street. Explore exhibitions including Defining Beauty and Ancient Lives, New Discoveries for an insight into art and artefacts from all over the globe. There are also free activities daily.



The Vogue festival 2015

The Royal College of Art in Knightsbridge is hosting this year’s Vogue Festival for a weekend of beautification, professional-grade selfies and designer meet-and-greets. For just £25, you’ll be treated to manicures and beauty treatments & tips as well as a talk from a longstanding Vogue photographer.



Italian food is a Notting Hill village favourite and is perfect for a Saturday lunchtime. Saporitalia can be found on Portobello Road and is offering a great mix of Italian dishes. The most noticeable feature of the restaurant is the wood oven fire used to cook their traditional Italian pizzas.



The London Marathon

Join the lines of spectators along the London marathon route to show your support for the some 35,000 runners on the world-famous 26 mile run. Tower Bridge and Embankment are popular spectator spots, as well as the finish line close to Buckingham Palace.


Conservatory – Shhhh!

Visit London’s second biggest conservatory at the Barbican this Sunday! The Conservatory is home to exotic fish and over 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees creating your very own hidden tropical oasis in the heart of the city.
