Five things I'm doing this March

Updated: Apr 26, 2019

Once again February flew by, and it's already time to plan March!

With a spring in my step, London is tricking us all into thinking it's time to put away those winter coats and get ready for summer.

But just incase, my five things to do this March will have to include some indoor things, and won't be all banking on the beautiful weather to stay!



Number One

Visit My Mosque kicks off this month on the first Sunday, which see's mosques all across the country opening there doors for an open day. London Central Mosque in Regents Park is taking part, and I'll be definitely paying a visit (especially as I've just booked another holiday to Istanbul this summer!).


Number Two

With the weather tricking us all into thinking it's almost summer, my five places to eat this month seem particularly appropriate. Another trip to Barrafina is on the cards, if you haven't been it's a must as it's one of the best Spanish restaurants in the capital. Sri Lankan restaurant Hoppers (one in Soho and one in St Christophers Place) is also in the diary as I'm particularly missing holidays to Asia at the moment, and this place helps to nurture my holiday blues. Dumplings in China Town, Bocca di Lupo and Six Portland Road have also made the list on tasty places I'll be revisiting this month.


Number Three

Take a trip down to Dulwich. First to see the Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway exhibition which is on at the moment, and also to find a few bits of very instagramable pieces of street art in the area. I've spent many summers, and plenty of winters in Norway so it holds a special place in my heart and his paintings look very nostalgic.


Number Four

With my first exams for the Blue Badge tour guide course coming up, revision will be high up on the list of priorities this month, so I'll be carrying on my quest to find the best places to study across London. The Reading Room upstairs in the Wellcome Collection was a fantastic find last month, and yesterdays trip to the V&A's National Art Library was definitely a success.


Number Five

I'll be carrying on with my blog posts on matching wine with paintings. My first blog post is now up, and it's how I paired a glass of 1995 Chateâu Beychevelle with one of my favourite paintings The Ambassadors by Hans Holbein the Younger. If that sounds interesting, read it here.
