Must-see London by London Bloggers

I asked some of London’s top bloggers to come up with that one place that should be on every visitor’s radar – a must-see London gem. Imagine you only had half a day to spare in the city…here’s a curated list from those in the London know. I hope you enjoy jaunting around the city…

Londoness Loves July 2019

As London prepares for tennis fever, I’m sticking to the non-sporty side of the city where you’ll see me hanging out in our cool museums and theatres or sitting lawnside, but with a Pimms in hand and listening to jazzy tunes.  Here are some of the best things to do in London this July. Stay…

Londoness Loves April 2019

London is blossoming into April quite nicely don’t you think? All our beautiful parks and gardens are starting to hop into Easter mode, and this is the month where we cheer on the other B word – the Boat Races. For some of the best things to do in London this April, here’s my springtime…

Circus 1903 | Royal Festival Hall

Please don’t send in the clowns, I whispered to myself as I took a seat at the Royal Festival Hall last night to watch Circus 1903. And here’s the great news: there wasn’t a single Krusty, Bozo or Grimaldi in this funny, sensual and gravity-defying showstopper. What you get instead is a big top serving…

Londoness Loves October 2018

It’s a big birthday for me this month, so I’m taking a deep breath as I head into a very busy celebratory October. It’s always been my favourite month (how surprising, I hear you say?) but it’s more about the smells, the colours and the cosiness of a month where the leaves turn from burnt…

Covent Garden in a day

Covent Garden is London’s living theatre, a canvas of the city’s enchanting past and its immersive present. It was once Nell Gwynn’s playground with her King, and home to the oldest theatre in London with its 500 ghosts of theatre past.

Victorian Afternoon Tea at the V & A Museum

The Victorian Afternoon Tea at the Victoria and Albert Museum had me at seed cake. These two words always bring my childhood back in a whoosh of nostalgia wrapped in a cocoon of Englishness.
