A little more about Kate
I am 35 and a mum to 2 year old Evie Violet. I own and run my own business from home,, which is a cool kids online shop for 0-3 year olds. I have chosen London as the location as it’s my hometown and one of the best cities in the world! :D
Top 5 Things to Love about London
Kate’s top five things to love about London

  1. I completely love the view walking over the Hungerford Bridges. You get to see the amazing buildings running along the river. From the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Gherkin and the new Shard, the Southbank centre the Tower of London, the juxtaposition of new and old
    architecture is sublime.
  2. There is just sooooo much to do in London. You are completely spoilt for choice weather it be food, theatre,
    cabaret, comedy, music, it’s all going on. And lots of it!
  3. There are some fabulous festivals in London. Victoria Park in Hackney hosts several very cool events like Lovebox
    or Field Day. So if you want that festival feeling for a day you can.
  4. Getting a boat down the Thames is brilliant!
  5. There are some really awe inspiring markets in London. Spitalfields and Brick Lane are hugely popular and very bohemian as is Portobello Road. From antiques to flowers, to handmade belts, clothes, and art it’s all there.
