King’s Road: A Morning Stroll in London

King’s Road has always been one of my favourites in London- it’s got the perfect balance of lively/homey- and with November and the season of Christmassy shop-fronts finally upon us, it’s now a better time than ever to go wandering around.

Unique coffee versions have been popping up all over London, from the charcoal-coloured in Notting Hill, to the yellow turmeric ones in Shoredich.
