Discover London with Georgina
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”
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.

Discover London through London Series
I wrote London Series which encapsulates all the places that I visited with my kids. This series forms my introduction to blogging as I retrace my footsteps as a Londoner.
London is one of the largest metropolises in the world and as such, I am sure you can imagine the chaotic lifestyle of Londoners!. Despite the hum-drum, London has so many beautiful parks where one can escape to. Find out where you can experience a peaceful retreat and be lost in your own world wonder when you walk through a garden of roses by reading the third instalment on MyCity MyTown London Series – Royal Palaces and Royal Parks.
#3 Royal Palaces & Royal Parks
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.
