Clapham Picturehouse: A Boutique Quirky Cinema

With the cinema scene these days dominated by the two big boys, Cineworld and Odeon, its rare to come across a cinema that doesn’t smell like stale popcorn and have the same mass-produced look and feel to them. Luckily, there are still some independent cinema chains out there, like Picturehouses.

Urban Golf, Virtual Golf at Smithfields Market

While golf might at times seem a bit elitist, it really is a surprisingly fun sport. I guess three of the reasons why its normally considered elitist is because it is expensive, it takes a long time to complete a round (5 hours!), and golf courses are really not that accessible for those without a car.

Dulwich Picture Gallery – And A Whole Lot More

When you think of London art galleries, the Tate Modern, the National Portrait Gallery and the Saatchi instantly spring to mind and are often the typical tourist’s first ports of call before they have barely touched down on the runway at Heathrow. But it’s important to escape the hustle and bustle of eager tourists and go a little further afield to experience something different to write home about.

Imagination: The Danish Olympic “House” at St Katherine’s Dock

With the spotlight on London during the Olympic games, most of the countries with athletes competing have set up their “home away from home”, an oasis in London which feels a bit like back home. Whether its for homesick athletes, the VVIPs to schmooze, or to promote the country to the hordes of Londoners and Olympic tourists this summer, its like having a mini-World Expo.

Review: Haircut at Murdock Soho Barbershop at Liberty

I’ve been going to barbers to get my hair cut since I don’t know when, but usually that involved going to my local barber, who charges £15 or less for a haircut. The result, however, has always been erratic – since I can never remember the name of the barber that cut my hair the last time, and I could never be bothered to book in advance, I usually got stuck with a random barber at the barbershop on my monthly visits.

Review: Outstanding Guided Supertour of St Paul’s Cathedral

There’s no denying that this is going to be a bumper year for major events in the UK. And it’s during times like these, that we find that the collective patriotism of the nation is revitalised. But one doesn’t have to be an Olympic enthusiast or street party-loving, monarchy devotee to feel proud to be British – and proud to be a Londoner. Sometimes, going back to basics is key to getting a true appreciation of the beauty of the City. How about a visit to an ‘oldie, but a goodie’ then – to the long-adored, Blitz-surviving legend – St. Paul’s Cathedral?
