It may be Black Friday – but if shopping’s not your thing, or you just need an escape from the crowds, head to one of London’s best kept secrets – The Chelsea Physic Garden.
A pleasant walk or short taxi ride away from The Levin, the Chelsea Physic Garden is one of London’s oldest botanic gardens and home to a unique collection of around 5,000 different edible, useful, medicinal and historical plants.. Escape the fast pace of the city with a relaxing stroll around the gardens or enjoy lunch or Afternoon Tea in their award winning cafe.
Guests checking in this weekend are in luck as Saturday 26 – Sunday 27 November brings with it the return of the Physic Garden’s much anticipated Christmas Fair. Featuring everything from beautifully crafted jewellery to crafts (including the always popular hand-crafted wreaths) to toys and of course, a delicious range of festive treats. Pick up some gifts for family and friends or treat yourself! There is also festive craft activities on offer for the younger family members.
If you are not in London this weekend don’t worry. The garden host regular events throughout the year covering everything from painting to photography and talks with horticulture experts to crafting sessions. Don’t miss the monthly behind the scenes tours or The Wiggly Wild Show – perfect for any young budding zoologists!
