So you’ve got a free day in London: whatcha gonna do? Go shopping on
Hell on Earth Oxford Street or get your pocket picked in Leicester Square? Of course you’re not. London is too awesome and life is too short for you to spend your precious time in a Gourmet Burger Kitchen or dicking around Buckingham Palace. Also, that shit is expensive.
This blog is about my ongoing quest to uncover the best stuff to do in London without getting swarmed by day-trippers or swindled by rip-off tourist traps. I’m up for literally anything: flying trapeze, taxidermy and being beaten with twigs by burly Russians. But London is a big place, so my partner-in-crime Carla Juniper is also on board, blogging specifically about vegetarianism and healthy living in The Big Smoke. You can find all her posts here.
In February 2014 Curious London was featured in The Evening Standard‘s top twenty London blogs. The full list is available online here. Since then, I’ve written up my thoughts for Time Out London, Metro Online, xoJane and The Debrief, and produced content for multinational brands such as Jeep, Barclays, Housetrip and Christies. (Upshot: I am available for hire, so if you like what you see, get in touch and we’ll make some beautiful music together.*)
*That’s a figure of speech. I am singularly untalented when it comes to musical instruments, and I can’t sing for shit. BUT I reckon we could churn out some good words.
