I only live about thirty minutes away from the big city by train but, it's ridiculous how rarely I actually make use of one of the best cities in the world!
Over the last month or so, I've actually hit the city a couple of times and it's rejuvenated my love for the hussle and bustle as well as, made me notice the opportunities and adventures I'm missing out on! It's great to explore alone or with a group of friends. You can literally sit in a restaurant all day and watch the world tick by or get involved in all the activities the capital has to offer!
I realise if you don't live in London or know what you're looking out for it can often be hard to find gold mines outside the traditional attractions. As I'm edging towards my summer break, I'm super excited to make every day count and have memories to look back on! Here's some events and links that I found:
1. It gives a comprehensive guide to all the shopping that London has to offer from major retail parks such as Oxford Street and Westfield Stratford to Camden or Greenwich Market www.londontown.com/London/Top_Street_Markets
2. There is a range of outdoor cinema screenings around London and you’ll probably be surprised that there might even be some in your local areas. There is a range of venues holding them this year in London, the most famous being Somerset House, showing both old and new films. http://londontheinside.com/2014/05/13/film4-summer-screenings-at-somerset-house/
3. In essence, I basically like the name and design of this site, I’m easily pleased what can I say. But, it also has great content on weekend adventures from every single angle that you could think of http://teatimeinwonderland.co.uk/lang/en/category/this-week-end-in-london/
4. This site has every Vintage store, restaurant and style that you could need in London; being able to find events based on region, decade or date you can defiantly fulfil your hipster dream. http://www.thevintageguidetolondon.com/
If you guys have any ideas or knowledge of some great hideouts please let me know, I'm a so ready to live life to the full, even if it is near home and on a budget!
