Horniman Museum London

The Horniman Museum in Forest Hill is a treasure trove of taxidermy, natural history and Wes Anderson style colour schemes! I love the baby pink they use everywhere, against the type – it’s perfect. It’s also an amazing place to sit and draw, it’s not super busy in there (I think it’s a bit of a London secret) and it’s got super good lighting. You’ll also find large gardens outside the building, a conservatory and a mini farm there – which is so nice in the sun. Great for an afternoon picnic after exploring the inside of the museum!

If this is your kinda thing then it’s well worth a visit and not as far from central as it seems. You can hop on the Overground from Shoreditch or Dalston, which takes around 20 minutes.

On Saturday it was the celebration of that fateful day me and my boyfriend went on our first date to the Red Lion pub in Hoxton and had 4 pints of beer and the weirdest sausage pizza ever. Three years on Saturday I forced him to ride the 242 back to Homerton with me so that I didn’t get murdered on the way home to my flat which was pretty grim. AWWW AIN’T THAT NICE. We are still together and stuff!

Anyyyyyway, Henry planned a ‘surprise’ for me, and I hate surprises because I hate secrets being kept from me, but obviously everyone does like surprises deep down. On Saturday it was my decision as to what to eat so I picked Brasserie ZΓ©del.
