Forget magnetic hoverbusses or electric jetpacks, one day we’ll all get everywhere via zip line, I’m convinced of it. Imagine the scene, boarding a lift to the top of the zip line station in, say, Putney, strapping in, then a 15 minute straight adrenaline-filled ‘zip’ all the way to Canary Wharf, briefcase flailing in your hand. I’m sure it’s the future, I’ve written to Sadiq and everything, though strangely I’ve not heard back. But it turns out I’m not the only person obsessed with zip lines, and it seems another group are way ahead of me. Welcome back Zip Now London, incredibly the […]
We’ve got something seriously hot and more than a bit spicy for you.

The weather is properly ON! There are people wandering the streets of Balham dressed for Bondi, we’re wearing flip flops in the office and the shops are running dangerously low on ice cream. As soon as you bust out of work, you’re going to need a plan that involves a rooftop bar. Thankfully there’s no shortage, but here are few opening or reopening in London this month.
Coffee, it’s the fuel that all Londoners run off until the evening when gin/beer/wine takes over. But how much do you actually know about coffee, really? Sure, you might know your flat whites from your lattes and you might know where to go to get a decent coffee and where to avoid; but do you know the journey that the bean makes from the farm to the cup? Do you really know how to judge the perfect cup of coffee and what a barista’s life is really like? (Don’t answer if you’re a barista, it’s cheating). As part of Mastercard’s […]

Having often told you that my beloved Fulham is rather behind on the food front (that’s to say when it comes to new and exciting offerings, we have more than our share of Sunday roasts) I am about to eat my hat, my pizza, kebab, and poké as Market Halls is opening in Fulham Broadway and I am beyond excited. Pitching up in the centre of Fulham, Market Hall will be sit in the Grade II former Edward ticket hall of Fulham Broaway station, which, for the last six years has been left vacant. Now, however, it will become a […]
