Travel: London Holiday To-Do’s

With a holiday break right around the corner, it’s a busy time to travel the globe. There for, we reached out to our dear friends of Nom de Mode – co-designers, Hardeep and Mandeep Kaur – to tell us the perfect spots not to be missed if you’re traveling to London for Easter break.


Botticelli Reimagined – one of our favourite artists of all time, this exhibition is all about the legacy of Botticelli, his work reimagined by artists and designers including Cindy Sherman, David LaChapelle, Elsa Schiaparelli and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. We’ll be making multiple visits.

Sensational Butterflies – the Butterfly House at the Natural History Museum is like walking into another land – surrounded by butterflies fluttering around, exquisitely coloured and really quite magical. It’s a little bit of paradise for all of us that never grew out of butterflies.

The Dessert Bar at Pollen Street Social - the restaurant may have a Michelin star but we only have eyes for the dessert bar. For self-confessed dessert addicts, it’s a cool place for late night treats without any judgement.
