Ella’s Illustrated London – The Biscuiteers

Welcome to my new feature- ” Ella’s Illustrated London” where I will draw
my way through some of my favorite places to visit in my home town.  Each week I will illustrate my favorite places to shop, eat and socialise. It also helps when they’re super cute and easy on the eye.

First to be illustrated has to be the coolest shop exterior in Notting Hill The Biscuiteers biscuit boutique and Icing Cafe on Kensington Park Road

The shop itself is filled to the brim with delicately iced biscuits of every imaginable design. I love the London themed biscuits that they create and more recently the Beatrix Potter Biscuits are just every child’s dream.  The exterior of the shop has an Old sweet shop feel about it and looks like its come directly out of Alice and Wonderland, I’m always going to be a fan of a shop that has a fun illustrated sign and exterior.

Quite easy to get to from the tube (easiest is either Holland Park or
Notting Hill Gate) and just a road over from the famous Portobello Road.
Perfect for picking up a few edible souvenirs for loved ones or if like
me you just like biscuits and having an excuse to eat.  They also run classes from the shop teaching all levels all you need to know about icing biscuits and being creative.

Up and coming biscuit events include 

Sunday 14th June – Gardening class 

Thursday 18th June – Fathers day big breakfast.

Have any recommendations that I should visit and Illustrate? Let me know your favorite places in London.

    A lovely illustration, your artwork has a warmth about it that's really appealing. I might search that out when I do one of my summer travel challenges.

    Such a lovely post idea Ella! I come down to London every year so I look forward to seeing what other places you illustrate 🙂 What about laduree? (the one at the back of harrods) or libertys? xx
