Wormwood Scrubs Park

At the weekend it's like a little slice of the USA here in the UK! Amazing little league games played by loads of people and great food trucks selling hot dogs, pulled pork etc. A little bit of alternative relaxation in this busy bustling city of ours!

Hanger Hill Park Pitch & Putt

This pitch and putt course in Hanger Hill Park has views of Wembley Stadium. It's so peaceful and you can have a nice walk around the park afterwards.

The Station House

A little gem located in the heart of Acton in Poet's Corner and a lovely place to go for a bite to eat - great selection of food and very tasty. The Sunday lunch is AMAZING! Really nice paved garden out front with lots of plants and they let dogs in too!

Revital

I love the Revital health food store on Willesden's High Road. Stocks all my necessities.
