    Sounds like you packed a lot in there!! Will have to pay a visit to some of these places next time I’m in London.

  2. Just learn from our mistakes and don’t try visiting Petersham Nurseries on a Monday! Also, as I learned on a previous visit, Books for Cooks is also closed on Mondays. I would definitely recommend checking opening hours ahead of time.

    Sounds like you had a good but hectic time :-)There’s just so much to see and do… I’m going over this weekend and a pilgrimage to Books for Cooks is definitely in order. Along with whatever else we can squeeze into 48 hours!

  4. Hope you have a lovely weekend, Jen. If you’re wanting to visit Books for Cooks, then it’s closed on Sundays and Mondays so Saturday – early, it gets packed! – might be the best time to call by. My brother keeps telling me that I’d love Borough Market but I missed out on that this time round, just being in London from the Saturday night. Irish Wine Contemplations has a piece about that market here – he also mentions a restaurant in Notting Hill which sounds worth investigating!
