11 Incredible New Afternoon Teas

Afternoon tea is a truly marvellous, quintessentially British experience that we can’t get enough of, which is why any excuse for a scone and cuppa is most welcome. Yet it goes without saying that the old, much-adored tradition sometimes needs a little tinker with and a sprucing up to make that classic egg and cress sarnie a little more desirable. Sprinkling magic onto their afternoon tea’s are a number of intrepid restaurants and hotels, creating wonders out of classics including a London Landmarks tea, a teddy bear picnic offering for the kids and a tea which comes equipped with coveted city […]


Is It a VIVIctory For Centre Point’s New Restaurant?

Opening a new restaurant is stressful enough, opening a restaurant in an iconic building, well that adds a whole new level of pressure. There’s more hype, namely will the restaurant do justice to the building? Or have they left the building to do the talking with the restaurant being more of an afterthought to the architecture or the views? So, when caterers, rhubarb, announced they would be opening their next restaurant, VIVI, in Centre Point, it was received with anticipation. They’d be up against the likes of Aqua Shard, SUSHISAMBA and even one of their own, Sky Garden. Except they’re […]

Michelangelo’s David, it’s one of the world’s most accomplished pieces of art man has ever created, chiselled perfection, the pinnacle of artistic achievement.

Everything You Need to Know About Slow Dating and Why It’s the New Way to Find Love

As a recent returnee to the London dating pool, I am already bored, done with it. Explaining to your doctor that you think you have RSI from too much swiping is no laughing matter. Quite frankly swiping through photo after photo is exhausting and I already have enough going on. Sure, I could just come off dating apps but as we now know if you’ve met your SO in real life you’ve pretty much reached mythical status. However, there is a new way to date it’s called slow dating and yes there is an app for that: Once. What is […]

After watching Leaving Neverland, this week, it’s unclear why anyone would want to listen to Michael Jackson ever again. The two-part documentary airs tomorrow and Thursday and it’s already changing how we think about the legendary singer. Here’s what we know so far about the show (of course, expect spoilers)… When’s it on? It’s been on TV in the US, but British viewers can watch it tonight (Wednesday) and tomorrow at 9pm on Channel 4. What do we know so far? The trailer was released a fortnight ago and gives us a good idea of what’s to come. The documentary focuses […]


Don’t Wish Away The Winter Yet, There’s Still Skiing To Do!

The ski season is well underway, and it feels like the whole of London is decamping to the mountains. From Val d’Isere to Courchevel to Whistler, just the names of my friends’ destinations of choice hold the promise of Christmas card vistas, exhilarating descents on pristine white slopes, and cosy yet chic après-ski. But there are disadvantages of these iconic resorts too.
