Slowly but surely, the first signs of spring are appearing in London and, with the slightly lighter evenings, there has never been a better excuse to explore the UK capital. The city’s reputation for fantastic food is only set to increase this month with the arrival of some exciting new restaurants and food pop-ups. Avocado Show, which bills itself as the world’s first all-avocado store, opens at the Bluebird this month, bringing with it some seriously Instagrammable dishes – avocado burger anyone? Afternoon tea is a quintessential British pastime and this month The Berkeley presents arguably the most chic offering in London with the new Pret-à-Portea: The Dior Couture Collection. March also heralds the arrival of the new spring/summer 2019 collections in store and where better to shop SS19 favourites than in London? There are plenty of exciting new collaborations this month, including British shoe brand Grenson and Rag & Bone, and JW Anderson x Uniqlo. Discover all these and more with our guide to the best things to see and do in London.
