The Colonnade: A Photo Diary

June 14, 2016
A couple of weeks ago me and my boyfriend visited London for the weekend to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. We met in London and it’s where we spent the first two years of our relationship, so it was amazing to be back, but also amazing to explore places we had never seen before.
I mentioned in my Little Venice outfit post that I’d never been to that area of London before, which was shocking as I studied on campus in Baker Street for three years. The canal is absolutely stunning and the whole ‘quintessential english’ feel is so lovely, so I’ll definitely be going back.
The hotel we stayed in for the two nights we were there is definitely one of the fanciest places I’ve stayed in (we usually opt for Premier Inns) and oh my god did it make the whole trip special. As I fell head over heels for the hotel, I thought I’d share a little bit of a photo diary from The Colonnade in Warick Avenue.
I thought I would also share a little bit about the hotel, as it only adds to its beauty. The Colonnade was originally victorian houses in the 1800’s, before converted into an all girls boarding school. Six years later it was made into a birthing hospital and surgery for ladies.
In June 1912, Alan Turing who was best known for cracking The Enigma Code, was born in the hospital. Since then the bulding was converted into a hotel where Sigmund Frued stayed while his house was being renovated, they’ve even named their best suite after him.
Warning, if you like photo heavy posts look away now!
