Describe your perfect weekend

Starting the weekend at Duke of York Square Fine Food Market with a spot of shopping along King’s Road in the afternoon. I love eating out so will usually find a restaurant for Saturday evening and on Sunday afternoon. On Sundays we also like to go to a park with the family and end the weekend with a drink at one of our favourite Chelsea pubs.
