When living in London temporarily when staying at Monarch House serviced apartments in Kensington, it will happen that you witness the most stunning sunset or sunrise. One with explosive colours over a beautiful urban landscape.
It may be one your way to or from work, or simply when having a walk by the river.
People often say the most beautiful sunsets are on a beach in Thailand or somewhere similar, but I don't necessarily agree.
London is a fantastic city that many choose as a holiday destination.
What are the ingredients for the perfect sunset or sunrise?
Clouds: Yes clouds are actually desirable, but you need just the right amount. Too many and you won't have a sunset, no clouds at all and it will be boring.
Water: Not necessary but having a reflection simply doubles the amount of colour. In London is can be the Thames or the canals.
Some form of skyline: The silhouette of the City or Canary Wharf really make for something spectacular.
Below are a few examples of places you may want to head to in order to witness jaw dropping views, but there are many more and if you have other suggestions why not share them with us?
