Visit Little Social

When hungry the guys from Pollen Street Social never fail to impress with their new incarnation Little Social. It’s a great little addition to the London restaurant scene.

Go bigger at Greenwich festival

One of London’s best kept secrets and some of the shows are not to be missed, our own Michael Aldridge was blown away by Prometheus last year.  Don’t miss the next Greenwich Festival which promises to be even bigger.

Get in the good books with your boss and go VIP this Summer!

Looking for a work evening out? Book a VIP tour at one of our attractions – guests can enjoy an exclusive tour of Madame Tussauds, the London Dungeon, Shrek’s Adventure! London or the SEA LIFE London Aquarium with a glass of bubbly!

Try the best dumplings in the south of London

What started in 2010 as a simple supper club, turned into one of the best places to eat under the arches of Brixton Village, now Mama Lan has opened new digs right next to Clapham Common tube! Their Prawn King Prawn and Chinese Chestnut Water dumplings are to die for!

Wear an animal onesie to London Zoo!

It’s been around for a few summers now, but it’s taken our team long enough to get over there and we did it in style in animal onesies of course! We suggest you do the same.

Open Air cinemas – they are EVERYWHERE!

But forget your Somerset House Films (they are SO last year) – this year it’s all about the Pop Up Screens or intimate cinemas such as the Queen of Hoxton
or Pop Up screens around town or

Head East to Beagle – the BEST Cocktails and Chips

With a large terrace where you can take some rays whilst sipping on some interesting takes on cocktail classics and their triple dipped chips are the best.

Pride and Prejudice at the Regents Park Open air theatre

Set in beautiful and atmospheric grounds, this adaption is bound to please many hopeless romantics. Surrounded by trees full of fairy lights, the audience is encouraged to bring their own
picnic or, if DIY sandwiches aren’t really your thing, there is an onsite barbeque and bar.

Go out to the docklands for the truck stop

Truck Stop will be rolling back into Wood Wharf on 1st & 2nd August. Each day features an awesome collection of the UK’s best food trucks, with old fire engines, ambulances and milk floats serving up everything from ribs to sushi.
