Ooo, arr! Shiver me timbers! All hands hoay! Hornswaggle! Sailing into 2019 is a nautical adventure like no other, courtesy of Bompas & Parr. To unpathed waters and, undreamed shores, the pirate ship of dreams will drift in on the world’s biggest boating lake. That’s right, world’s biggest! Taking place in Zone 1, (yep, turns out the world’s biggest boating lake is in Zone 1 in London – who knew!) the immersive experience will run for three months, beginning towards the end of January and ending, to our dismay, until the end of March. Bompas & Parr has partnered with […]
Aggi Sverrisson is the patron chef and owner of the Michelin- starred restaurant Texture and he’s on a mission to bring the cooking and ingredients of his native Iceland to London. We met up with him to discuss why we should all be eating skyr, how to make Christmas cooking less stressful and his food predictions for 2019. Texture is known for its Icelandic ingredients and dishes, what is the ethos behind Icelandic cooking? Iceland’s culinary ethos has its foundations in simplicity and purity, with a strong focus on seasonal and local produce. The harsh Icelandic climate means that traditionally, […]
Zac Goldsmith is going to totally do his nut! They’ve only gone and built another runway at Heathrow without telling anyone! It isn’t clear precisely how much passenger capacity the new runway will add, but in a blow to the government’s transport strategy the 8ft runway is marginally shorter than the two existing 12,000ft runways, meaning it isn’t likely to be able to handle the larger A380 and Boeing474 jumbo jets. The exact facilities available at the terminal building haven’t been revealed, though they’re expected to be pretty sweet. And in a boost to campaigners for quieter skies, the potential noise […]
You never really say “ah, I fancy, um, Portuguese cuisine tonight” do you? Instead we opt for things more along the lines of Chinese, Italian or perhaps Vegan what with the changing of the times. And yet perhaps a visit to Londrino would change up that thought process. The Portugese word for Londoner is, in fact, Londrino – so no, they’ve haven’t just decided to get all flamboyant with the name but have instead catered the title to the every-day Londoner. Headed up by chef Leandro Carreira, the London Bridge spot plays with flavours and meets, at points, the influence […]
Oh the great returneth of ye olde Luna Cinema has arrived in time for Christmas and we’re oh so jolly about the news. Luna Cinema is the unarguably popular film experience that pops up at pretty much all of the most elaborate buildings in the UK and, due to its namesake, there is always a darn good moon shining down as popcorn clutches enjoy their favourite flicks outdoors. Now, Luna Cinema has returned for a few festive shenanigans, showing a bunch of Christmas films that we all know, love and want to watch again and again and again and… you […]
Look outside. Winter isn’t just coming – it’s well and truly here. If you’re going to leave the house (and, let’s face it, it’s a big ‘if’), then you’re going to need to find somewhere cosy. Somewhere warm and comfortable. And, if possible, with a drinking license. Fortunately, beneath the icy exterior, London has a wonderful selection of pubs with the only thing that can make winter enjoyable – a roaring fireplace. After you’ve spent hours trudging around in the cold, a stiff drink beside a proper fire will make you feel human again. Check out our guide to the […]
You go to restaurants and hotels for the food, the atmosphere, the company and the loos… That’s right, London’s bathrooms have upped their design game and now are appearing on our Instagram feeds – it’s not just photos of food anymore. From neon lights to spaceship egg pods, gold swans and more marble then you can handle, here are 15 bathrooms that you need to Instagram. Aviary Moorgate (Great Northern) (0.2 miles) What: Loo With a View Why: London’s latest rooftop restaurant and terrace bar, Aviary, doesn’t skimp on the views from the loos. Way up on the 10th […]
If you’re not popping bottles, is it even Christmas?! There are a tonne of Champers to choose from over the festive season, whether that be for a present or for your own personal downing. So, we thought we’d be kind (seeing as it’s Christmas ‘n all) and help you with your...
We totally love Christmas, don’t get us wrong. However it can be such a drag when it comes to choosing presents; Dad always gets socks in a last minute panic-by, and Aunt Geraldine will always end up with some form of randomly selected gift set purchased on Christmas Eve. It’s a...
Is London the food capital of the world? Or is it Paris? Or maybe somewhere in the far east, Tokyo perhaps? No, the food capital of the world is, in fact, inside the V&A. Because there’s an entire city made of actual food. If you’ve ever spent a an afternoon making Gingerbread houses, hours spent arduously trying to get the icing to stick that pitched roof together without collapsing the entire property, then spare a thought for the guys who came up with this; the The Museum of Architecture’s Gingerbread City. The annual exhibition brings together architects, designers and engineers […]
