Jubilee market – Covent garden

With the summer season upon us it is a great time to shop outdoors at the many markets that London has to offer. When I was younger I spent loads of time at markets, from food shopping with my mum at Hoxton market to clothes shopping with my friends down Petticoat lane, but I have … Continue reading Jubilee market – Covent garden

Paris – exploring La Defense

I imagine Paris is a city similar to London in the sense that it has well known sights and attractions, particularly in the centre, but also has lesser known areas that are also filled with interesting things to see. As soon as we stepped off the metro at La Defense our first thought was that it must be the Canary … Continue reading Paris – exploring La Defense

Le Grand Bistro – Paris

Before arriving in Paris we decided to book a table at a restaurant that we had already looked up so we wouldn't waste time searching for one while there. Le grand bistro is situated in Maillot - St Ferdinand, a short distance from the Arc de triomphe and runs a set menu. The menu includes an aperitif of a cocktail and olives, … Continue reading Le Grand Bistro – Paris

Breakfast with a view

Situated on 20 Fenchurch street, just a short walk from London bridge, you will find a commercial skyscraper that is commonly known as the walkie-talkie due to its shape. Hidden away 155 metres up inside this building is an oasis overlooking the city that believe it or not is open and free to the public! The sky … Continue reading Breakfast with a view

Robots @ the science museum

Who would have thought that robots went back 500 years! This fascinating show begins with a very lifelike baby robot to greet you at the door and is followed by some other pretty freaky, yet interesting humanoids throughout. You can really see how far technology has moved on as you move through the rooms of … Continue reading Robots @ the science museum

Dancing in the sky

When I was given the opportunity to attend the silent disco at the Shard I was a bit apprehensive, for a start I have a fear of heights and just the thought of being 68 floors above London sends shivers down my spine, secondly everyone dancing around in silence with earphones on their head...how awkward! But what a … Continue reading Dancing in the sky

The British Museum

I am surprised I have never been to the British museum before, especially as it has been the most visited attraction in the UK for the past ten years! I went to look at some specific artefacts for a project I'm working on and didn't have time to stick around but I was really taken … Continue reading The British Museum

Tiger Tiger – Haymarket

Searching for somewhere to eat around the west end on a Saturday afternoon can be a bit of a task. I really wanted to try Shake Shack but noticed that there were people standing up and eating and after strolling around Soho for an hour I wasn't really in the mood to do that. A … Continue reading Tiger Tiger – Haymarket
