It’s been a while since I shared my London wanderlist – so I thought I’d share my progress, you know: just in case you were wondering…
Scoff scones and guzzle hot brown beverages at an afternoon tea
All done! I picked the most Instagrammable one (I hope people know I joke when I say something like this btw) and celebrated 10 years of friendship with a friend at Sketch. I fell in love with the delicious food, the powder pink interior and the spaceship toilets. But the poor service was as almost as shocking as the pink interiors.
Visit the Mapping the City exhibition at Somerset House
All done. And I’ve been to three others since. They’ve been great inspiration for that map wall I planning to make one day – and then charge £10 for people to see it.
Visit the almighty Tower of London. It’s probably the only major tourist attraction I haven’t been to.
We’re halfway 2017 and I still haven’t penetrated that stone fortress. Saving this for a time I can be bothered to wake up at 6 on a weekend.
See anything at the Royal Albert Hall.
Not yet, plus everything and everyone that plays there sells out in 3 seconds so I might as well give up on this one.
Get my culture on at the Shakespeare’s Globe theatre
Saw Much Ado About Nothing, but set in the colourful and musical chaos of the Mexican Civil War. Also I grabbed seating tickets and even got a cushion! Fancy! Had a proper started from the bottom and now I’m here moment. If you get a seat here, get a cushion, your ass while thank you a million times over.
Hit up the cereal valhalla that is Cereal Killer Cafe
All done. It’s a fun gimmick and if you are throwing money on something, why not the Kinder Happy Hippo?!
See The Book of Mormon.
I haven’t seen that many, but this has to be the all round offensive musical ever … and I loved every minute. It’s been advertised as the musical that’s hardest to get tickets for, but now Hamilton is coming to London I assume it might get easier.
Stroll around Columbia Road Flower Market
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but walking through an overcrowded street with sellers shouting wasn’t my idea of a fun Sunday morning.
Find out what Hint Hunt is all about
I made it out with seconds left and few additional escape games followed. I think Hint Hunt is my first pick for the best lock yourself in a room experience.
Hop on the Cable Car and ride it to infinity and beyond!
Thank God it was cheap because it may be high, but there is little there to see, but now I have enough material to support that opinion.
See if Tramshed is worth the hype.
Still don’t know as new and more exciting places keep popping up and distracting me. But I did go to the less tight up and cooler brother at Hixter.
Go on an Underground Tunnel tour.
This is happening in October! Not Aldwych as I had planned but another one of theirs. If this is something you are interested in doing these: the best way to stay updated on this is to sign up for the Hidden London Tours or Transport of London Museum newsletter.
Take a photo at Abbey Road…do I even need a reason?
No, because look no one has time to go that far to just cross the road.
Eat at the London branch of 64 Degrees which I fell in love with in Brighton.
I didn’t and they closed so that a big fail. Guess I need to book another trip to Brighton.
Chow down on popcorn while enjoying a Mean Girls Quota A Thon or Wes Anderson marathon at the Prince Charles Cinema
I have a feeling I’ve been to every cinema in London except this one, but for some reason I missed all events I was actually interested in.
That’s a 8.5/15, which is not too bad as I’m not racing to get them crossed off and so many other wishlist moment have gotten in the way. I’ve updated the list and will share the additional ones sometime.
Have you been to any of the above? How’s your wanderlist crossing off going?
