Finally, after many months of sorrow, spring has arrived! We cannot contain our excitement and this week we take you through the best things to do in London this spring. It will be a mix of outdoor and indoor activities, since – let’s face it – it won’t always be sunny!
1. INVENTING IMPRESSIONISM – The National Gallery, until 31st of May. The exhibition revolves around the figure of Paul Durand-Ruel, Parisian art dealer who discovered and supported the masters of Impressionism. It features a collection of 85 paintings from the most renowned artists such as Claude Monet and Auguste Renoir.
2. CANALWAY CAVALCADE – Little Venice, 2nd-4th of May. In occasion of the first bank holiday weekend in May, the houseboats of London’s canals will come together in Little Venice for a fun and colourful parade. Accompanied by food and drink stalls, you can view the cutest boats in a very vibrant feast.
3. THE BED by Tracey Emin – Tate Britain, until June 2016. Coming back to London after 15 years of travelling worldwide, ‘The Bed’ represents one of the most important oeuvre of British contemporary art. Internationally acclaimed, it candidly expresses the sorrow and despair Emin was experiencing.
4. RHS CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW, Royal Hospital Chelsea, 19th-23rd of May. The most famous flower show in the UK, and possibly in the whole world, in fact it attracts visitors from all over the globe. The show presents not only ‘regular flowers’, but it also showcases avant-garde designs, artisanal and urban gardens.
5. WITH A GOOD BOOK – Green Park, always. Some times the only thing you need is relaxation! Grab a deck chair, a good book and enjoy some me-time at the park. Our favourite choice has to be Green Park, it’s so quiet that you can dive into your book and feel like you’re in another dimension.
