A Gin Martini Townhouse Filled With Pygmy Goats Is Coming, We Kid You Not!

Things are getting weirder by the day here in London. From restaurants where cats can lap at milk whilst you sip your tea, to Michelin-starred chefs rustling up meals for pooches, it’s now best to just expect the weird and wonderful whichever corner of the big smoke you saunter to. Now, to add to the endearing list, a martini-filled townhouse in Shoreditch is arriving with gin to boot. But, if it were that simple, we’d likely not be writing about it… so, what’s the catch? Ah, well it’s filled with pygmy goats of course, what else? And whilst this might […]

Sea For Yourself! The London Aquarium Opening By Night This Autumn

But, the SEA LIFE lates will be adult-only, hurrah, and if you can think of anything better than […]

Yes, London In The Sky is back!

You’d Be A Luna-tic Not To Visit This Moon Installation

Did you know the temperature on the moon varies from super hot to super cold and that it measures 3,476km in diameter– that’s roughly a quarter of the size of Earth! It’s a dusty ball of rock but it’s also a beautiful one to boot that is said to effect our moods as, in astrological terms, the moon is said to be connected with the emotional body – so, if you’re ever feeling grumpy, just blame it on […]
