13 dreamy pictures of London’s hot bank holiday

13 dreamy pictures of London’s hot bank holiday

As temperatures soared to a record 28.7C over the weekend, Londoners in every borough made the most of the hottest bank holiday weekend since its introduction to the calendar in 1978. 

So while you’re still slapping on the after sun and recounting tales of boozy barbecues, here’s a little reminder of how the city looked in all its sun-drenched glory.

1. Trafalgar Square  

 

 

2. Temperate House, Kew Gardens 

We’ve watched the restoration of #temperatehouse @kewgardens for the last 5 years so couldn’t wait to go visit yesterday and it was well worth the wait!. . We were at Kew with a couple of my Uni pals @clairepeacock100 and @princesszozo17 and by the time we’d made our way across the gardens (after a picnic and ice creams) it’s fair to say we were baking and ready to drop! The perfect excuse to return very soon!! More pics are over on stories. ☀️#kewgardens #escapetothecity #londonliving #lovelondon . .

9. Little Venice 

The main problem I think with Instagram’s algorithm is it stops people from posting things they wouldn’t usually post because they’re scared it’s gonna just bomb. I’m totally the same, I hold back so many photos because I know they won’t be liked as much so Instagram will just hide the photo from everyone. So here is to this photo remaining in the underworld of Instagram, I hope those ho see it enjoy it 🌞 . Yet Instagram claims the algorithm was brought in to make people more creative, I think it’s done the opposite to me. But anyway, here are some cute lil kids dressed up as Victorians yesterday at Little Venice. . Little Venice is a neighbourhood in London centred on an area of decorative houseboats and a partly tree-lined, three-way junction of canals. Many of its buildings are Regency white painted stucco terraced town houses and taller blocks (mansions) in the same style. The junction, a small fraction larger than usual along the canals, is that of the Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal and the Regent's Canal, and is also known as Browning's Pool or Little Venice Lagoon. To the south is the largely commercial Paddington Basin and Hyde Park. . It’s a long weekend for us in the U.K. so we also have a chill day tomorrow, it’s going to be 27 degrees too! BBQ tomorrow and then packing for Canada 🇨🇦
