I’m off on my holibobs to Spain next week, but there are still lots of things that I want to do closer to home over the summer. London is just over an hour away and I really don’t visit enough. There are loads of great things to do in London over the coming months. Here are the ones I’m making spaces in my diary for!
UP AT THE O2
I last visited The O2 when it was the Millennium Dome. It was only recently that I discovered that you can walk over the top of it! Although this seems particularly scary (…I’m scared of climbing ladders) the views of London from the summit promise to be spectacular. You can even do a sunset, or after dark walk – perfect for a date with a difference! It’s a great location too, as afterwards you can grab a bite to eat and watch a show. Ant & Dec’s Takeaway on Tour sounds perfect for the more adventurous as audience participation is encouraged and you can even end up as part of the show!
PLATFORM 9 3/4 AT KING’S CROSS STATION
This is surely a must for any Harry Potter fan. Snapping a selfie whilst posing at the disappearing luggage trolley is something I definitely want to do! It’ll be a fab addition if you’re making a scrapbook of your summer!
HOT TUB CINEMA
Something I’ve wanted to do for ages is go to an open air cinema. Now add in hot tubs, your best friends and 80s film classics and you’ve got the perfect night out! Screenings take place throughout July. I wish I’d found out about this sooner as I’m pretty booked up for July. I’ll be pencilling this in next year’s diary, for sure!
VIRGINIA WOOLF AT THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY
For one of my final year courses at uni, I studied the entire works of Virginia Woolf and I kind of fell in love with her. The National Portrait Gallery are holding an exhibition exploring her life and work between 10th July and 26th October. I’ll certainly be popping along with my Mum for an afternoon of culture.
THE BREAKFAST CLUB
I’m possibly the only person who hasn’t enjoyed a morning meal at any of The Breakfast Club’s establishments. The thought of pancakes or eggs benedict or french toast is making me hungry just typing this! Recommendations of what to try first on a post card please.
