One of my favourite parts of staying in a vacation rental while traveling is having the chance to find and enjoy the freshest local foods shops and markets. While I love dining out, there’s something so refreshing about being able to cook a healthy and quick meal at home after a day out sightseeing. I’m sure that has something to do with the fact that I’m a wear-the-rubber-off-the-bottom-of-the-shoes-walking-so-much kind of traveler. By the end of the day there’s nothing that feels as good as just kicking back and spending a peaceful evening in a beautiful home setting. And not to mention I can actually enjoy all those tempting pastries on display at the local bakery or beautifully fresh ingredients at the market!
If you’re that kind of traveller, then you’ll want to visit Gail’s Artisan Bakery during your stay in London. Just walking by the window display with its artistic and oh so tempting displays of breads, pastries and desserts will be enough to stop you in your tracks. There are many Gail’s Bakery locations throughout London, but guests staying in our Chelsea vacation rentals will want to take note of their Chelsea location at 209 King’s Road.
Founded in 2005 in Hampstead, Gail’s is based on a passion for truly great bread. And that’s what you’ll find along with a wonderful selection of freshly baked pastries and desserts. If you’re staying in Chelsea, you can simply pop in for a loaf of fresh bread or stop by and enjoy dining at the café. Just be warned … you’re going to be tempted to bring home at least a few of the desserts!
