Spring in the City
26th April, 2019

Spring in the City

The much-awaited spring is finally upon us. With it comes a handful of bank-holiday weekends and a chance to properly enjoy London at its finest. Even better news, if you're visiting us at The Pilgrm, you can use the code SPRING when booking to enjoy breakfast on us throughout your stay (valid until the end of May). 

For those who are looking for the best places to enjoy the new-found sunshine, we've put together a guide on the best local places to undo all of our previous months of darkness.

Hyde Park
One of London’s most famous parks is just a 10-minute walk from The Pilgrm. Housing the Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, home to Speaker’s Corner, the Serpentine Lake (think open water swimming, rowing and pedal boats) and the Serpentine Gallery, Hyde Park is more than just a green space. Look out for the Royal Horses which are taken out to exercise in the park each morning.

Norfolk Square Gardens and Talbot Square Gardens are also ideal nearby picnic spots, with deck chairs, ping pong, and giant chess in the warmer months.

Regent’s Canal
On our doorstep is also the famous Regent's Canal and the picturesque area of Little Venice, complete with colourful canal boats, Canadian geese and swans. You can take a canal boat from Little Venice to Camden, hire your own boat from GoBoat, or even test out your balancing skills by hiring a paddle board from Active360 (seasons permitting). If you’re just after a gentle meander, the canal path provides a great way to explore on foot.

London Zoo
Family trip? Make time to include a visit to one of London’s most well-known attractions and the world's oldest scientific zoo. Situated within our neighbouring Regent’s Park, London Zoo is only a 15-minute taxi or a leisurely 40-minute walk away for those who prefer to work on their step-counts. It’s worth checking their daily programmes for feeding times and their Meet the Keeper sessions.

Pergola Paddington
For a local rooftop foodie experience, Pergola Paddington is a sure win. Described as a ‘leafy outdoor food court’, it offers a treat for the taste buds with a mix of everything from Vietnamese barbecue from the guys at Mam, to towering burgers from Patty & Bun, and plenty of other inspired choices. Yes, there might be queues to the bar, but there are plenty of reasons why this place is so popular.

London Shell Co 
Seafood and sunshine go hand in hand, and even better when enjoyed whilst cruising Regent’s Canal aboard London’s first floating British seafood restaurant. The beautifully restored, azure-blue canal boat starts its journey in Paddington Basin, a short walk away from The Pilgrm, and offers a 5-course tasting menu and optional wine pairings. It’s an idyllic way to spend a spring evening. (We recommend booking with as much notice as possible).

The Darcie & May Green Barges, Paddington
More boat-based dining in Paddington, this time from the Daisy Green collection. Flying the flag for Aussie brunch - something we have welcomed with open arms and made a true staple for weekend dining in the capital - Darcie & May Green is the place to come for your smashed avocado, with the added bonus of waterside views.

The Lyric Bar & Grill, Hammersmith 
Just a couple of tube stops away from The Pilgrm, The Lyric offers both a prestigious theatre and a spacious rooftop bar. A picture-perfect spring evening starts with drinks on their leafy terrace, followed by a newly launched, critically-acclaimed show.

Underbelly Festival
Thinking ahead to April and slightly further afield from our west London digs, now’s the time to plan your trip to London for the infamous Underbelly Festival. A mix of live entertainment, comedy, cabaret, music, dancing, and alfresco eating and drinking in South Bank, that runs from April until the end of the summer. The festival is easily accessible from The Pilgrm, being 15 minutes via the tube to Embankment station.

So, whether you're joining us for a flying visit or looking to enjoy a slower paced break in the capital, there are plenty of ways to make the most of the sunshine in Paddington and our surrounding neighbourhoods - let's just hope it turns up and stays for a while.

To book your stay with us, click here and enjoy free breakfast when you use the promo code SPRING. Valid until the end of May.
