By Lottie Hulme |
2nd January 2019

London is a huge place, but with this overwhelming size comes an abundance of areas to tick off the visit list. So, if you’ve been left feeling a little perplexed by where to head, what to do and, perhaps most importantly, where to eat, then fire up your Instagram app (if it isn’t fired up already that is), and follow everyone on the listicle below. From London’s own spider woman who spends her time hanging off nail-bitingly tall buildings, to food accounts that’ll have you unembarrassed to stuff your face. There’s a heap going on, so witness it in all of its Verdana, Juno, Gingham and Aden glory!
