Adventures that don’t require a long-haul flight

I have enjoyed getting to know ‘my’ London so much over the last two years. As much as I love the lights and buzz of Leicester Square and Covent Garden, there are other parts of the city that make this new Londoner feel a lot more at home. Here is my run down of my favourite slightly lesser-known parts of the city, as well as the ones that I want to explore more.

Even though I live here, there is so much to see and do, so why not try something different next time you’re in the capital?

As soon as I stepped through the door of Generator London, tucked away in a residential area only a stone’s throw from King’s Cross, I felt like I’d become a tourist. It’s strange to be surrounded by people exploring my city, but it automatically made me feel excited, remembering all the hostels I’ve stayed in around the world.

Generator isn’t a normal hostel, though. It’s fair to say that it’s a lot more clean, innovative, and pretty than a lot of the places that I have stayed in. With lots of social areas, including a piano for anyone to put on a show, this is a social space for London travellers.

So why was I pretending to be a tourist for the evening? Generator invited a handful of London bloggers to find out about the hostels around Europe, give cocktail making a try, and even flip a few pancakes on camping stoves. It was an unusual evening filled with chats, laughs and stiff drinks. Sounds perfect, right?

Cinderella’s Royal Table was our most desired reservation restaurant of the entire holiday. At a cost of two dining credits each, it was also the most expensive. Did the food, atmosphere, and characters make it worth the cost? Read my review and watch the vlog to find out.

I think I might have a new musical obsession, and it’s come from a more unlikely source. I saw Half a Sixpence at the Noel Coward theatre for the second time on Saturday and I am now officially hooked. The soundtrack has been brightening up my commute ever since. I’m not the only person to fall for this show – it just won two big ‘What’s On Stage’ awards for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress. Both are very well deserved!

Read on to find out what I thought of this musical and why I think you should book your tickets soon.
