Sunny week

Sun’s out, fun’s out with our sunny week guide.

The sun won’t cost you a thing, and neither will these wonderful ways to while away your week.

1. Win a nighttime kayaking trip

On a warm summer’s eve, there’s no better place to be than out on the water, with a cool breeze ruffling your hair. Talisker whisky, in partnership with Secret Adventures, are offering you the chance to win two tickets to an incredible sunset kayaking experience on the Thames. Best of all, your adventure ends at the pub, where there’s a celebratory glass of Talisker waiting for you. We all know that winning a competition will put you in a suitably sunny mood – you’ve got until June 29th to enter the draw and win this wonderful opportunity! ⭐️Sponsored⭐️

2. Marvel at The London Mastaba

It’s big, it’s free, it’s art. Head to Hyde Park to spot the latest offering from large-scale art maestro Christo. The multicoloured creation is composed of 7506 barrels, and it floats peacefully on the Serpentine until September. You really can’t miss it (seriously, it’s massive).

3. Wander round London’s prettiest streets

Muse on the mews, or saunter down streets that beg to be Instagrammed. Particularly on a sunny day, when you can bet the lifestyle bloggers will be out in force, angling for that perfect shot. Perfect pastels and fabulous flora are just a handful of the attractions on offer on the mean streets of Kensington, Notting Hill, and Primrose Hill.

4. Check out the Horniman Museum‘s new gallery

Ordinarily, we’d never advocate spending a sunny day indoors. But the charming Horniman Museum is unveiling their World Gallery on June 29th, an exhibit dedicated to what it means to be human. Once you’ve seen that, make a beeline for the sunshine, as the free museum has a butterfly house, aquarium, and animal walk, featuring the likes of alpacas.

5. Seek peace in Kyoto Garden

Holland Park is hiding a little slice of Japan, and the best time to see it is during a brilliant burst of sunshine. It’s impossible not to feel tranquil whilst wandering amongst Japanese maples, or peering into the garden’s beautifully sculpted koi pond. Say dōmo arigatō to the good people of Japan for providing us with such a lovely spot!
