The National Army Museum in Chelsea, London

Would you believe me when I say The National Army Museum is like a beautiful art gallery for the Army’s history?

Well, you should. It’s beautiful, well thought through, in the heart of Chelsea a short walk from Sloane Square and it doesn’t cost a penny to go in!

I’ll just say, while I’m probably not the target demographic of the museum, I will definitely be keeping an eye out on its future exhibitions.

What a great discovery!

Headed to London soon? Take a look…

Borough Market is one of my favourite places in London. I’ve always gone to the same places when I visits, because they are my favourite, but lately I’ve tried to try one new place every time I go.

My latest discovery in the market is Bread Ahead, it’s the perfect place to go for a sweet treat and mid-afternoon pick-me-up!

Sugary shots of beautiful baked goods are just one click away…
