A Friday free -- what would you do?

I arrive in London on a Friday in June and my daughters won't be joining me until about supper time.

I've been to London multiple times before so I'm just looking for something low key and restful to keep me out in the (hopefully) sunshine and busy so I overcome any jet lag; I'm a good plane sleeper.

I'll be staying in Kensington and I for sure can drop off my bags.

I've thought of going to the Chelsea Physic Garden. Any other suggestions for filling my time? Nice lunch suggestion?

thanks and always.

Cross the river after CPG and have a look round Battersea Gardens... Very nice place for a walk and it has a cafeteria.

So many options. Holland Park would be a leisurely way to spend a Friday. They have a cafe in the park, but I'd be tempted to head over near Holland Park tube station or onward to the Clarendon Cross area. Can recommend Cool Monkey Thai and Maison Blanc.


Another suggestion would be to take the 50 minute watertaxi ride between Little Venice and Camden. It's fun to first have a stroll through Regent's Park, walk the towpath to Camden Lock, have lunch & browse the markets, then catch the watertaxi to Little Venice.

Or if you choose to forego the canal ride, then head up to the top of Primrose Hill for the view if you haven't done so already and have lunch in the village below.
