The Biggest Spice Girls Exhibition Ever Comes to London

The defining band of the 90s, girl power and platform shoes, the Spice Girls, will be celebrated this July and August at #SpiceUpLondon – The Spice Girls Exhibition. The biggest exhibition of its kind, it’s a chance to fan girl over the iconic costumes, thousands of items of memorabilia and the Spice Bus, yep the bus that managed to jump over Tower Bridge in Spice World: The Movie. Sadly, the bus didn’t go onto have any more success and washed up on the Isle of Wight, dreaming of its former days, rather like many 90s pop stars, (the washed-up part, […]

The pair have created a glamourous space that emphasises Terence Donovan’s reputation as one of the most revered fashion photographers on the 20th Century. White, grey, British racing green and touches of gold, work together; shimmering surfaces and matte finishes are reminiscent of a camera lens and a photographer’s wet tray is reimagined as a glass bar top sitting atop a […]

The Michelin Star Restaurant Coming To King’s Cross

Coal Drops Yard, in King’s Cross, is to play host to the latest instalment of Barrafina’s seemingly unstoppable expansion. The group, which already has a Michelin Star for their Soho outpost, is set to launch their new canal-side restaurant later this year. And to spice things up a bit, they’ve embraced crowdfunding to give you the chance to own a slither of the restaurant yourself. Back in an age when London consumed coal in the way it now does avocados, Coal Drops Yard was built to handle the eight million tons of anthracite every year. Having fallen into disrepair, it […]

We Review: Boutique Country Hotel, Stoke Place

What: In the amount of time it takes you to get across London (especially if you’re on the District Line), you could leave the city behind you, leave the packed tubes, the pollution, the noise and find yourself in Stoke Place, a country house sat in 26 acres of Buckinghamshire parkland…you just have to ignore the pitstop in Slough. New? No and all the better for it. The house was initially built in 1690 as a family home for the royal chef, Patrick Lamb. Chef fact fans, he cooked Kings James II’s legendary coronation feast at Westminster Hall. Until the […]
