London is a place where there’s something for everybody. The place is so vast, with such a wide variety of things to do, that nobody can say ‘London isn’t my cup of tea’. London is everybody’s cup of tea! You just need to go to the right places. Want a quirky time in London? Try the following 8 things.
At The Outdoor Cinema
Haven’t you always wanted to go to an outdoor cinema? Take a beer, a blanket, a snack or two and you’ll have a great time. There are a number of outdoor cinemas in London, so take your pick. They usually play classic films, so it’s more about the experience than the film itself. Either way, you’ll have a fab time.
This colourful cake shop has even had its own TV show. Celebrities commission the top cake makers to create amazing looking and tasting creators for special occasions. Katie Melua commissioned a cake from them, and the staff surprised her with a mermaid version of herself in cake form. You can go and see it all for yourself and even try some special treats in the London store!
In Borough Market
Borough market is full of weird and wonderful food vendors that you’ll enjoy sinking your teeth into, as well as people selling all kinds of cool wares.
Enjoy Afternoon Tea
Afternoon tea is big in London; just about every hotel you can think of offers their own special version. Don’t settle for any old hotel though; take a look at the best hotels for afternoon tea before you book your day out. The perfect place to take a friend or relative. A nice way to relax and get away from all of the hustle and bustle too.
Drink Beer on a Roof
If you fancy a beer, head up to a roof to make it even more exciting. I love Frank’s Cafe in Peckham. I’m betting you will too!
A Street Art Tour
This is one of the best places to explore street art in the whole world. There’s a London street art tour for all budgets and time limits too, from a few hours to the whole day. The tour should be both fun and educational. It’ll probably make you want to go out and buy yourself some spray paints too!
In Kentish Town
Kentish town is full of little vintage boutiques for shopping and plenty more quirky places to explore. It’s great for food too, so don’t hesitate to have a bite to eat here.
At Camden Market
Going to Camden is like going to a whole different world. It’s a great place to go if you want to add some quirky accessories to your collection, as well as smoke some Shisha and buy unique clothes. Even if you don’t have a lot of cash to spend, just soaking up the atmosphere is enough.
These are just 8 of the quirky ways you can spend your time in London. There are plenty more, but I’ll let you discover them for yourself! See you next time!
