Top things to do in London this January
London has to be the greatest city in the world, and the best thing about it is there's ALWAYS something to do. The last couple of years has allowed me to find some great secret spots in London but the more conventional, tourist places still have so much to give. This January, why not try visiting a few of these places and see what's going on!
Good Life Eatery: Firstly, keeping on my healthy track, my go-to eatery has to be Good Life Eatery in Chelsea. Everyone who's anyone is seen there and your spoilt for choice with the menu. Last time I visited, I opted for the clean and lean bowl which consists of quinoa, kale, sweet potato, poached eggs and pesto. The best thing I've ever tasted. Good Life is situated on a little side street in Chelsea but the best thing is you could spend the whole day there - dotting from health store to health store and stopping at the Saatchi gallery for a cultural infusion.
Independent Cinema's: I'm the biggest sucker for independent cinema's. When I lived in Liverpool I only ever visited the FACT Picturehouse to see films. So since coming to London, things haven't changed much. The FACT is part of the picturehouse chain which I have a membership to. There are a number of them in London as well, such as South London's Ritzy. Independent cinema's show some of the best films and screening rooms are so spacious and much better than chain cinema's like The Odeon.
Gods Junk Yard: Up until the January 18th, you have the honour of seeing the wonderful Christopher Bracey's God's Own Junkyard at Lights of Soho. Anyone who knows me will know I'm a huge sucker for neon lights so I'm incredibly excited to have a peek at this. There is already a few pieces at Selfridges that you can view all year around, but this is on another level.
Guy Bourdin Exhibition: Guy Bourdin is one of my favourite artists, who has a plethora of groundbreaking work that captures everyone, especially those in the fashion industry. Housed at Somerset House till March 15th, the exhibition showcases a huge amount of his best work. The exhibition will be brilliant on its own but exhibitions at Somerset House have a greater feeling to them as they are so well thought out and surrounded by a beautiful building. Whilst you're there, why not stop by Toms Kitchen for a spot of lunch or even a little pastry? (they sell gluten free!)
Silent Disco at the Cutty Stark Silent Disco's are the funnest things to attend with a big group of friends. The Cutty Stark in Greenwich is a ceased ship which is now a museum and is a huge and incredibly exciting venue to host the silent disco. You can also explore the rest of the ship whilst you're there. Date: January 23rd
