Forget The Footy, I’m Going Human Zorbing On Ice

Tomorrow the world will go football mad as the World Cup kicks off in Russia. I’m going to be honest and admit that I’m not a footy fan (we might or might not have gotten complaints that my Where To Watch The World Cup guide yesterday wasn’t up-beat enough) but when your only reference point is a shortlived Subuteo phase* aged nine it’s tricky to get onboard. Thankfully those guys at QUEENS on Queensway have the perfect antidote: Human Zorbing On Ice: World Cup Edition. The concept is simple, their 12,000 square metre ice rink is transformed into a very […]

Things to do Outdoors

Sunrise Workouts with HEX

When the sun is out, everyone acts a little differently. For one, we talk about the weather even more than usual, insist on walking absolutely everywhere, whilst getting our celeb on donning sunglasses indoors, at all times. It’s without a doubt however, that the sun makes it a little easier to pull on the gym gear and do some outdoor exercise of some sort. Knowing this, John Lewis’ Summer of Sound on the Roof has announced the launch of their sunrise HIIT training sessions from fitness experts HEX. If the word sunrise is sending shivers down your spine, wondering at […]

The Spa Day That’s Strictly For Men

This one is for all the men out there. Ever noticed that spa days are, well, a little bit girly? Fluffy packages aimed at girls who’ve just broken up with their boyfriends or girls celebrating a birthday, or girls celebrating an anniversary or girls being treated by their new boyfriend. What us men need is girthy, not girly. Which is where Four Seasons Trinity Square come in. The city-based hotel has just launched a their Men’s Urban Retreat package aimed at ‘men on the go’ and it looks like the days of gossiping to therapists about divorce proceedings are over. […]

10 Realistic Ways to Tackle Stress

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and this year they are focusing on stress and how to tackle it. Stress is something pretty much every Londoner knows about, because as much as we love this city, it isn’t half stressful: huge crowds, tube delays, grim commutes, hideous rent, vying for promotions and always trying to keep up. And whilst we know that there is so much more to London,  we also know that sometimes we all need to take a step back, give ourselves a chance to recharge and to remind ourselves that you know what? It really is […]

Kayak Up The Thames With Talisker Whisky

What’s brown, liquidy and smells? Yes, Talisker Whisky, but also The Thames. So what a perfect collaboration that the two have paired up for a kayak extravaganza, along with Secret Adventures? Secret Adventures offer the ultimate in off-grid adventure, and now they’re encouraging us to get up-close-and-personal with the river we spend our lives walking alongside, over and under. Despite being a central feature of the city that houses over eight million of us, so few of us will have had any real interaction with the iconic body of water (unless you’re one of these people who commutes on that […]

As if that wasn’t enough, they’ve also brought in BBC One MasterChef 2016 finalists, Billy and Jack to create an exclusive menu. Welcome to clean breathing. According to NASA there are a number of plants which are […]
