Conquer London's Beer Mile

•••
More eloquently known as the Bermondsey Beer Mile - the mile itself has actually grown to a rather greedy two miles. Based along the archways of a railway line that runs towards London Bridge Station, just off London's South Bank. In the past few years, the craft beer industry has boomed, not just in London, of course. But London, always happy to embr[...]

TAXI: My Least Favourite Method of Transportation

•••
Ah, the humble taxi. King of the road; saviour of heeled-feet and eternal cause of digress and unease… Nothing grinds my gears more than taxis. They are by far the worst form of transport and often an ongoing source of distress when visiting foreign lands. And the worst of them - airport taxis! No doubt on many an early morning you have stepped s[...]

WTF is Champing?

•••
https://www.instagram.com/p/BTgoPBklhuq/   A little known term that you may very well have never heard uttered previously - the name “champing” is a cute abbreviation of “church camping.” And church camping is, well, camping in churches - perhaps unsurprisingly. But I don’t mean flinging up a 2 man pop up in the cemetery - champing means[...]

Fall in Love with this Glampsite Just an Hour from London!

•••
As a Londoner, I’m always looking for excuses to get out of the city (temporarily, of course) on a cheeky weekender. For some time now, I’ve been trying to find an appropriate glamping experience that’s feasible from London. While there are a few options for glamping within easy reach of London, almost none offer decent transport links due to the o[...]

Sun, Sea and Anarchy and at the World’s Biggest Punk Festival!

•••
Every August thousands of punk music fans, ranging from mohawk-sporting crust punks and rainbow-haired girls, to cute rocker kids-  and even guys who look like they might play golf with your dad - descend on Blackpool; an unassuming seaside town in Northern England. With visitors pouring in from across the world, it’s safe to say that Rebellion Festiv[...]

5 Offbeat British Festivals to Catch this Summer

•••
Ah, the British summertime! When wobbly bits and sunburnt noses adorn every grassy knoll and poorly-laid beach towel, and it's finally acceptable once again to eat ice cream for breakfast. Although if we're thinking of a super traditional British summer, it's probably raining. But no less, festival season is upon us. But I don't mean Glasto, or Edinburgh[...]

City Girls vs. Nature: a dose of olde English charm in the Cotswolds

•••
The neurotic nature of England’s spring weather means Easter is often a washout - but not this year. While fishermen with bulging tackle boxes caught trains out to the coast, I hightailed it to the ‘burbs. I was joining Girls on Travel - a tour group that connects solo ladies on guided trips, and this one was out to the Cotswolds. Also known as the e[...]

Brighton's Most Spectacular Viewpoint

•••
Located on the bustling seafront, the British Airways i360 would perhaps look odd if it were anywhere other than ever-quirky Brighton, South East England. Perhaps the closest some of us might come to real-life UFO experience; the i360 tower is quite the spectacle towering 450 feet above the famous pebble beach, ensconced by a huge shiny doughnut and visi[...]

8 Exceedingly British Treats to Try in London

•••
As a Brit, I’m happy to admit that we are a nation of uninventive eaters. Besides the humble Yorkshire pudding, and adopting curry as our own, we have pretty much stayed off the world’s culinary map -and for good reason. Interestingly, we do have a lot of great restaurants and the food scene in London is amazing. But it revolves heavily around the food o[...]
