The 9 best cherry blossom spots in London
If you’re a London reader you’ll know how temperamental the weather in this city can be and @sharonyws has sure sussed the perfect combination of cherry blossoms and British weather, i.e through puddles. The pink splattered silhouette is really rather beautiful though and you can recreate this little beauty in Greenwich Park.
Channel your inner tourist and ponder around Greenwich Park soaking up the very best of Cherry Blossom season. The park is dotted with golden gems too including The Royal Observatory, The Queen’s Orchard and The Wilderness Deer Park too.
It’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into the countryside, a far cry from the city flooded reality.
Notting Hill has always been my favourite spot in London to snap up a ‘gram or two. Just one look at Portobello Road and you can see why.
In Spring, the area becomes even more beautiful. The technicoloured buildings are fronted with glittering cherry blossoms, and so are the grand buildings littered around the Royal Borough of Kensington too.
Definitely the spot for strolling along the grand streets and snapping up pretty in pink pictures.
Chelsea needs little introduction. Known for its grand houses, stylish boutiques and the abundance of celebrities who roam the streets, but we like to characterise this borough as one of London’s prime cherry blossom spots.
Dazzle your followers with petite petals, minimalist houses and natural twines.
A favourite with Londoners, Hampstead Heath is blooming with cherry blossoms throughout the gorgeous park. While it might not be warm enough for a dip in the ponds just yet, it is the perfect place to wander and see the stunning springtime blooms.
Head to the Hill Garden, which was once the private garden of a now demolished manor house. It now boasts a variety of colourful flowers, including our favourite pink cherry blossom.
