Brick Lane Street Art Tour in Shoreditch London

Brick Lane Street Art Tour in Shoreditch London

Street art is alive and well in London’s Brick Lane.  Although there is certainly some street art which I might just call graffiti, most of it is definitely art.  Everywhere you look you can find posters, sculptures and murals – some of which are more subtle than others.  Although the street art in Brick Lane (and everywhere) is constantly changing, I want to give you a taster of what to expect on a Brick Lane street art tour! Where is…

A Tower of London Beefeater Tour

A Tower of London Beefeater Tour

I remember going to the Tower of London when I was a kid, I must have been less than 10 years old so we’re talking maybe 25 years ago (wow that makes me feel old)!  The only thing I remember was the beautiful purple velvet crown in the Crown Jewels, and nothing else.  So, when I returned to the Tower, I was excited to see the Crown Jewels again and see what else was in store for me at the…

Gin Tasting in London at the Beefeater Gin Distillery Tour

Gin is the most English of spirits, and one of my favourite tipples!  On my recent visit to London as #wombatsTraveller ambassador for wombat’s Hostels, I decided to visit the Beefeater Gin Distillery London, the most famous gin distillery in London.  Their gin distillery tour included a visit to the working distillery, access to their gin museum, a gin tasting and a gin and tonic at the end of your tour.  If you’re looking for a cool gin experience, then…

A Secret Food Tour In London

A Secret Food Tour In London

Oh food how I love thee, let me count the ways… well, I won’t count them all, but trust me, there are many!  I’ve tried a food tour in Prague, a cooking class in Mexico City, a combination of both in Bogota, and even when I’m in my home country of England I love trying local specialities and finding the best places to chow down on different dishes and familiar favourites.   When I was in my own capital city of…

Climbing the O2 Arena with Canine Partners and Up at the O2

Climbing the O2 Arena with Canine Partners and Up at the O2

I was back in London again, but this time for a good cause.  I was climbing up the O2 arena, the old Millennium Dome to raise money for Canine Partners, an amazing charity which helps to train puppies to become assistance dogs to help people with disabilities.  The climb up the O2 was great fun actually, although I was nervous at first, and coming down was steeper than I thought!  Before I talk about the climb itself I want to…

How to Fall in Love With London in 2 Days

How to Fall in Love With London in 2 Days

Another trip to London?  I rolled my eyes.  Overcrowded and overpriced, London was never my favourite place to visit and had always felt so overrated to me.  However, on my recent visit to London, everything changed.  I wasn’t stressed out by the traffic or the people, and I didn’t feel ripped off every time I paid for something.  Instead, I went to new places in the city, ate amazing food, saw a theatre show, and had a wonderful time.  So,…
