Despite the wet weather, London has lots of rainy-day activities to make the most of your weekends...
We headed back in to the office a little less enthusiastically than normal after the weekend. Even the weather seemed to be against us, as the rain pelted down on our commute in. The three-day break was much needed but, now we face that long-haul before the summer holidays and not much to entertain us in between. The next bank holiday is too far off to think about and the welcome distractions of Wimbledon, summer exhibitions and festivals haven’t quite yet started. However, despite the wet weather, London has lots of rainy-day activities to make the most of your weekends.
Here are our suggestions of what we’ll be getting up to at the weekends in the coming month:
- Botticelli Reimagined at the V&A, which is the largest Botticelli exhibition in the UK since 1930.
- We couldn’t leave without admiring the mural in the V&A’s café, giving us the perfect excuse for a spot of afternoon tea!With thoughts of Spring-Cleaning and rejuvenation, a wander around Andrew Martin and OKA for inspiration. We’re after the Botannical Prints from Oka to bring a touch of Spring indoors.
- Forget the weather and head indoors to lose yourself in a bygone era of Jane Austen’s Love and Friendship at the cinema. We like the look of The Gate Cinema, which offers a comfortable seat in a traditional picture house setting.
