A day in London: Bankside

Have a day in London and not sure what to do? Try out my self-guided tour of Bankside - including the Southbank Centre food market, Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe, and more.


V&A London Design Festival tour

I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for London Design Festival 2018, but next time, I think we'll go it alone. Ultimately, all of the installations were really interesting, and by just skipping through the most popular ones, you unfortunately also need to deal with the crowds which, in this Instagram-Model age, is best avoided if you're actually there for the art.

Notting Hill Carnival

I really enjoyed exploring some of the wider activities that make up Notting Hill Carnival - as well as the procession, there are loads of areas set up with Caribbean food stalls and music, so you can enjoy the atmosphere without being rooted to 'one good spot'.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

If you’re both a theatre- and Harry Potter-nerd (like me), this is worth seeing, especially if you can get hold of some of the cheaper tickets. However, leave expectations of J.K Rowling’s storytelling prowess at the door to avoid disappointment.
