Discover London with Georgina

London City

London opens to you like a novel itself…It is divided into chapters, the chapters into scenes, the scenes into sentences; it opens to you like a series of rooms, doors and passages. Mayfair to Piccadilly to Soho to the Strand”

Anna Quindlen

As a Londoner, I could not agree more with the quote. A City that is 2000 years old, founded by the Romans, survived the London Fire of 1666 and the Blitz, London opens up a world of discovery, from cobbled streets to high rises – every corner has a story to tell you. With Discover London with Georgina, I hope to bring these stories to you.

Explore the royal parks that have become a peaceful haven for Londoners to escape the busy city life. Kensington Palace Gardens is an absolute idyllic getaway from chaos of the city whilst the adjoining Kensington Palace will offer you an enlightening journey of history especially of the Victorian era. A visit to Regent’s Park and the sweet aroma of the rose garden will draw you over in an instant.

As for royal palaces, there is none so compelling as the Tower of London in British history. A castle built over a thousand years ago and with gripping stories of prisoners, missing princes and executed queens, a visit to this once renowned ‘fortress, palace and a prison’ should be top of any visitor’s list.
