Our Autumn picks this season.

It’s officially Autumn and with the leaves turning gold and a chill in the air we all know it’s time to take that jacket out of hibernation once again or shop for a fabulous new one! London is bursting with activities this season and here is a pick of our favourite things to do.

The famous Trafalgar Square hosts many events all year round and October 12th marks this year’s Diwali celebrations. Partake in the ‘Festival of Lights’ and experience traditional Asian music and dance before exploring the bazaar and watching the dazzling fireworks. http://bit.ly/1okt533
Daylight Saving Time ends on the 26th October and that means shorter days and longer nights! London is at its most beautiful in the dark so why not make the most of this opportunity and admire the lights at Piccadilly Circus or Harrods? http://bit.ly/1my1pft

Nasim, Fabio and Federica. Our wonderful Reservation Agents at Cheval Residences can be reached on +44 (0)20 7341 7052.
My name is Nasim, I am German from Lebanese origin that moved to London to study and work at the age of 17 and ended up staying and falling in love with this city. I have worked in several London 5 star hotels before and joined the Cabin Crew sector for a year working for Emirates and living in Dubai. Besides being bilingual in German and Arabic, I am keen on learning French again as I currently understand the language but find it hard to articulate myself appropriately.

We at Cheval Residences had a wonderful time volunteering our afternoon yesterday at the Tower of London. Team members from sales, marketing, concierge, housekeeping and management spent the afternoon productively making and planting poppies in the moat of the tower. Upon arriving we joined the volunteer queue, it was wonderful to see so many eager and willing people wanting to make a difference! As well as Team Cheval and many individuals, we also spotted Team Santander, it was great to see another large corporation volunteering their time. After a health and safety briefing and short video we were ready to construct! 














Teams were split in two, the assemblers and the planters. The assemblers would place large and small plastic washers on a metal rod before finishing with a plastic base and cap to keep the poppies in place and prevent any from coming undone.















The assemblers would then hand these ‘poppy rods’ to the planters to fill the moat with red. The planters would need protective eye…
