If you thought cherry blossom season only showered its pretty little petals in Japan, you’re in for an absolute treat when it comes to London’s pretty in pink season. Rather than fleeting the city, here’s everywhere to find cherry blossoms in London. Cue pink petals fluttering their way onto your Instafeed imminently. 

WASHINGTON DC - what we can expect at the Olympic Park

Olympic Park

London’s about to get its very own cherry blossom forest! A giant cherry blossom tree circle is set to arrive at the Olympic Park by spring.

Planting is already underway, with 33 trees popping up in east London. The number of trees corresponds to the total number of London’s boroughs too.

Greenwich Park

If you’re a London reader you’ll know darn well how temperamental the weather in this city can be and @sharonyws has sure sussed the perfect combination of cherry blossoms and British weather, i.e through puddles. The pink splattered silhouette is really rather beautiful though and you can recreate this little beauty in Greenwich Park. 

Channel your inner tourist and ponder around Greenwich Park soaking up the very best of Cherry Blossom season. The park is dotted with golden gems too including The Royal Observatory, The Queen’s Orchard and The Wilderness Deer Park too.

It’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into the countryside, a far cry from the city flooded reality.

St Paul’s

Arguably one of London’s most adored and recognisable buildings, St Paul’s Cathedral always offers up the prime photoworthy spot for any tourist and hardened Londoner alike. Come Spring it’s transformed into a floral haven and is littered with pink fairy-like droplets, more commonly known as cherry blossom petals. 

One step onto Madison’s rooftop bar and you’ll find yourself scrabbling for your phone and clicking open the camera app, or Huji for you hipsters. 

Obviously we all know the exteriors are beautiful in Spring, but the cathedral’s interiors are worth a gander at too.

Regents Park

Wow. If @j_r_photography’s shot is anything to go by, Regents Park’s cherry blossoms are simply beautiful. 

Just a short stroll away from London Zoo and the Open Air Theatre, Regents Park is a prime spot for escaping the chaos of city life with its green expanses and tree-tiered paths.

Don your tutu and strike a pose among the blossoms.

Kew Gardens

A wander around Kew Gardens is always a good idea. 

As soon as you enter through the gates, prepare to head on one hell of a journey as you discover a whole new world of florals, plants and fungi. But aside from the beautiful botanical gardens that surround you, we want to draw your attention to the cherry blossoms that have managed to pitter patter their way into Kew. 

Adorn your feed with pretty petals, blue skies and flying blossoms. It’s a needs must.

Notting Hill

Notting Hill has always been my favourite spot in London to snap up a ‘gram or two. Just one look at Portobello Road and you can see why. 

In Spring, the area becomes even more beautiful. The technicoloured buildings are fronted with glittering cherry blossoms, and so are the grand buildings littered around the Royal Borough of Kensington too.

Definitely the spot for strolling along the grand streets and snapping up pretty in pink pictures.


Chelsea needs little introduction. Known for its grand houses, stylish boutiques and the abundance of celebrities who roam the streets, but we like to characterise this borough as one of London’s prime cherry blossom spots.

Dazzle your followers with petite petals, minimalist houses and natural twines.

Comptoir Libanais

Stop. Just imagine cosying up in this pretty corner. We know it’s a little different to the inclusions here but it’s uber cute, colourful and a floral haven for any cherry blossom fans. 

Comptoir Libanais brings big and unexplored Middle Eastern flavours to the table and delivers with powerful flavour punches with every bite. As amazing as the foodie delights are, we’re gushing over their photoworthy interiors. BRB, we’re running off to explore this little cherry blossom spot.
