One New change hidden gems in London
When I think of London, the first thing that comes to mind are the old historic buildings dotted throughout the city, such as: the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Big Ben and St Paul’s. Or the ever-busy Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, where numerous red carpets events occur, because...
Winter is a great time to visit the capital of England, especially over Christmas time. Cosy Christmas markets, streets decorated with holiday ornaments and Christmas songs playing everywhere you go. If you’re lucky, the city might even have some snow. Your visit, however, can take a turn for the worse if...
Curiosity stall in Camden
I’m not sure if it is wise of me to admit that, before today, I had never visited Camden market. After living in London for 4 years, I had never made it to the market in the north. I’d like to say my lack of northern presence, was because I...
Me digging at the Durotriges Dig
Who doesn’t love a mysterious story about people and their lives long passed. When people asked me what I wanted to study when I was older, I would always answer archaeologist.

I wasn’t planning to visit the Real Food Market today, but I’m happy fate brought me to the Waterloo area (A bit of an embarrassing tale, which I won’t be disclosing here). The Real Food Market is a small but cozy market near the Southbank and is open from...

If you are looking for a Christmas market in London, you're better off visiting Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park or the Christmas market on the South Bank. If you rather visit an alternative, hipster market, you've come to the right place. Winterville in Victoria Park oozes East London vibe. Its...
Poppies in London
888,246 Ceramic poppies have been planted around the Tower of London in remembrance to those who have fallen during the first World War. It’s an incredibly beautiful display of strikingly red poppies, which many tourists and locals have visited since the poppies were gradually installed over the summer. I visited the Poppy installation today, and...
Winter Wonderland, London
I LOVE Christmas markets, and if I had the time and money, I would probably visit all the Christmas markets in Europe each year. Strolling passed charming little wooden chalets in your warmest winter coat, holding a hot chocolate or Glühwein, while festive songs are being played in the...
