Baring Hall, Grove Park.
Built in 1882, Baring Hall was the public face of the Earl of Northbrook's estate sitting at the southern edge of the grounds across from the newly built train station. It was designed by architect Ernest Newton and is an early example of the arts and crafts movement. Notable visitors have included George Bernard Shaw and children’s author Edith Nesbit. Sadly in 2009 the building suffered damage due to a fire and risked demolition. Locals campaigned to save it and it has recently been taken over by Antic who have embraced it's fire damaged interior.
Totally in awe and gratitude for these amazing summer sunsets for the remaining amount of time we have in this magical home here in London. Soaking every moment in! 🔥
@ollietrew and I are setting off to Thailand in a few weeks in the preps for our Beautiful YOU Retreat, followed by a few months(or who knows how long) of nomadic travels. 🙈👣🙈👣 As Ollie often says, before you get to bed tonight remember you are loved you are enough. ❤
Vegan and gluten free heaven. Delicious simple menu. Chose from only about 4 or 5 options but they’ve definitely picked some good’uns. The ‘Full Broca’ is a classic great veggie breakfast with roasted tatties, homemade molasses beans, (homemade?) sausages and either 🥑 or 🍳 with roasted 🍅. Gluten free bread is available and doesn’t taste like dry air 🙌🏼 another good dish is the Mexican inspired bowl with either scrambled egg or tofu. If you’re after a meat fest then obviously don’t go there but this is better in our opinion. There’s pretty much every tea you can think of plus great coffee, a range of pastries, sarnies and gluten free vegan cakes 🙏🏽 all in the little daily basket shop. Definitely a great little Aladdin’s den place to stop. Worth a visit, right opposite Brockley station 🥦 👌🏾👌🏼 8/10
Great afternoon swimming with all our Sunday Marriott turtles!
We have 3 turtle shout outs this afternoon.... Arthur in our Toddler Level 2 class and both Aishleen and Aurelia in our Toddler Level 3 class for their fabulous independent woggle swimming! Keep up the good work!
“One thing is for sure: most cultures have drummed for rituals, celebrations and ceremonies. Drum circles seem to tap into our primal need to share and support one another through one of the simplest and most beautiful ways to connect without words; music.” #christinestevens
THINGS TO DO IN LONDON #1
To many Londoners, Canary Wharf is an area best avoided. Full of suited workers in the week, and an apparent ghost town at the weekends. But I think this is a place worth attention 🏙💓 Canary Wharf is just amazing, I recommend visiting this place at night, when all buildings are lit up.
If you have any interesting photos of this place, you can share them in DM 😌🇬🇧
