We have never been more excited about the things to do in Spring than we are this year! Finally, after a long year of fighting the pandemic and after all the restrictions that have come with it – we are able to go outside and enjoy life.
Of course, by following the government guidelines, we can slowly get back to doing some of the things we love. And what a better time to do it than the season of awakening – Spring! So, here are some things to do this Spring:
Unleash your green fingers
Pay a visit to your local garden centre and stock up on flower bulbs and other seedings. One of the things we’ve learnt during the last years’ lockdown is that growing your own herbs and seasonal veggies is not only a great hobby but also offers priceless satisfaction in eating your own produce! Check out which Spring seasonal vegetables and fruits you can easily grow at home in our previous week’s article here. Or enrich your garden with colourful flowers – read all about the top Spring flowering bulbs here!
Explore the great outdoors: London parks
Once London soaks up the sunshine and all the flowers, big and small, start to bloom – the concrete jungle turns into a softer and colourful place to explore. The capital has close to 3,000 parks which covers 18% of the urban area – who knew! Many of the parks have breathtaking flower gardens which make them the best places to admire London in the Spring. Our top 3 favourite parks are:
- Holland Park
- Regent’s Park
- Greenwich Park
If you’re up for a real Spring mission, London TimeOut has listed the most beautiful Spring flowers and where you can find them – read the article here.
Feel the sand between your toes
Even though staycations are officially allowed from Monday (although with restrictions!), we’ve found a way to feel the sand between our toes – here in London! There is one condition, though… You will have to sign up for a volleyball session! Since outdoor sports activities are allowed, gather your friends (up to 6) and spend an active day outdoors, preparing for that summer beach action. Find all about beach volleyball courts in London by visiting the UK’s largest beach volleyball club SideOut website here.
