The Last Tsar: Blood and Revolution – Science Museum

A new exhibition at the Science Museum in London originated a few years ago, when a curator discovered a crate buried in the museum’s vast archive. Inside, she found 22 photograph albums of the Russian Imperial family, taken between 1908 and 1916, and so began the journey of The Last Tsar: Blood and Revolution.  Marking 100…

Splendours of the Subcontinent – Queen’s Gallery

When I went to India, I came back with a couple of silk rugs and my most treasured collection of Ganesha statues. Shame I didn’t know any Maharajas, as I might have returned with some souvenirs the likes of which you have never seen. That is, until now. In a new exhibition, The Queen’s Gallery,…

11 children’s books set in London

As a young Parisienne,  I would dream of floating across the Channel to London’s rooftops in the company of a sooty Bert and his Mary Poppins. Pan and Tinker Bell would whisk me over to Big Ben in the blink of a sleepy eye, and for breakfast, I would make marmalade sandwiches with Paddington Bear….

A London Literary tour for Kids

It’s time to hop into your winged slippers and take a trip round a magical London – one where childhood dreams never end. These London tales tell of a honey-loving bear from Harrods, an eccentric detective, boys with magic powers, giants and a Gothic vampire.  So, without further ado, let’s take a swashbuckling, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious literary…

Londoness Loves May 2018

It may not look like May outside my window with the relentless grey tinge that accompanies that most uninvited of all types of weather: gusty winds and general sogginess. Even April’s tree blossom has resigned its fate to raining down onto the city’s pavements. The good news is the bank holiday weekend promises to bring…

Potty for Harry at the British Library

Can you believe it’s been 20 years since ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ was first published? And just in time for Halloween, there’s an enchanting exhibition opening at the British Library. Harry Potter: A History of Magic is a treasure trove of rare books, manuscripts, magical objects and illustrations that will bewitch even the most cynical…

GoBoat

GoBoat | Merrily we Cruise Along

What better way to see all of London’s watery gems than by canal, or, to be more specific, via GoBoat? I always think of Little Venice as the Montmartre of London. It’s picturesque, bohemian, eclectic and soulful. It’s wedged between Paddington’s high rises and grungy Camden, and it neighbours majestic Regent’s Park and London Zoo….
