One of the great things about living in London is that you can fall across a little piece of enchantment just about anywhere. Today, by following my nose (and a leafy laneway), I fell across Avenue House Estate.
As I walked further and further away from Regents Park Road, the noise of traffic seemed to disappear and the quiet embraced me. As I entered, I could smell that slightly damp leafiness that brought back memories of rainforest walks as a child.
There are several entrances to the Estate so it's pretty easy to find and the kiosk/tearooms are open every day from 10am. But quite frankly, I think it's the perfect place for a picnic and an afternoon sprawled on the grass reading the paper.
