While the lockdown measures continue across the UK, there is some hope on the horizon as Covid-19 cases show a steady decline and the vaccine rollout continues apace. As we edge towards spring, there are still many things worth getting out and about in London to see and do. Here’s a few ideas.
1. London Markets. Markets selling fresh goods remain open, such as Southark’s renowned Borough Market. This is London’s oldest food market, which has been trading for an extraordinary 1000 years! It is a lively dynamic place full of outstanding fresh produce. You will find knowledgeable and friendly traders, and plenty of cooking tips!
2. Outdoor Art. The Winter Commission at Tate Britain, London, is a must-see. The artist Chila Kumari Singh Burman has transformed the front of the building with a spectacular colourful light display, inspired by an eclectic mix of Bollywood and Blackpool. Entitled remembering a brave new world, the artwork offers hope for a brighter future.
Elsewhere, look out for the Illuminated River installation. This is a nocturnal display which lights up 14 Thames bridges, spanning 4.5 nautical miles. The LED technology throws a new on light some of London’s most famous landmarks including the Millennium Bridge.
3. Parks and Gardens. London is full of beautiful green outdoor spaces, many of which are still accessible. For example, much of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew is open to the public. Here you will find some of the world’s most diverse collection of plants, which are an UNESCO world heritage site.
Remember, if you are travelling out and about in London, it is important to follow Covid-19 safety measures. These include wearing face coverings on public transport, in taxis, and in private-hire vehicles.
