The weekend is nearly here and on Friday thoughts always turn to weekend plans. Who doesn't like to make the most of their days off? A good weekend for me consists of food, fresh air, doing something different and more food.
I like to build up an appetite before I eat, so if I can combine some walking, fresh air and then lunch or dinner I am in my element.
Crystal Palace Park (5 minutes walk from Crystal Palace Station) has been a love of mine for many year's, my parents used to take me there as a child. Many an hour was spent cycling around the lake and visiting their small farm and children's playground.
Viewing the dinosaurs which were often accompanied by my dad making realistic roaring sounds and frightening the bajebers out of me.
I cannot wait to see what will happen to Crystal Palace Park with the new planned expansion, 7 star hotel and rebuild of the famous Crystal Palace Great Exhibition.
I love the park all year round, as it changes with every season and with the development there will be lots of exciting changes to come.
After a good hour or so walking around the park I like to venture up the hill to grab a bite to eat.
Crystal Palace has some wonderful foodie offerings, personal favourites:
Crystal Palace Market Place: You can read my earlier review here
The Exhibition Rooms:
Crystal Palace makes a wonderful weekend escape in which you can visit the park and have some yummy lunch.
What makes up your perfect weekend?
