Last week I wrote about my day out driving a Fiat 500 S Convertible TwinAir through South West London. I drove to some of my favourite neighbourhoods of London, Chelsea and Pimlico, but I also visited areas I rarely go to because they are difficult to reach by public transport such as Wandsworth and Battersea. Along the way I had time to stop for an excellent brunch at Queenswood, a lovely restaruant and café in Battersea Square.
A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to test the new Fiat 500 car. I don’t get the chance to drive in London very often so having my own stylish car for a day was a real luxury. The Fiat 500 is a fantastic city car: I was able to run errands across three boroughs of London, quickly and effortlessly, and still have time to have brunch with my husband. I am going to share my experience in two blog posts; this is the first one so keep an eye out for the second one next week.
Yesterday I took my parents to Oblix to try the “London Afternoon Tea” menu, a traditional afternoon tea with dishes that pay homage to the city of London. I booked the table weeks in advance and as the day approached I began to worry about the weather. Luckily we were blessed with a gorgeous day and clear panoramic views across the London skyline from the 32nd floor dining room.
