Do Something this Spring!

All this sunshine is making us giddy with excitement over at GDG towers. It may only be 10 degrees, merely flirting with the teens, but it feels like summer to us!

So, with this new found energy and zest for life we thought we better do something about it. And what better than teaming up with our pals at to help them compile their brilliant list of 50 Must Do Spring Dates?

There are loads of inspired suggestions, from some of London's top movers and shakers, but if you want to cut to the chase and read our pearls of wisdom (who'd blame you?) then here's a bit of a taster. Click on the pictures below to get the full story...

The perfect Spring Break in West Sussex...

Spring in a glass? Sounds like a plan... 

So go on, do something different this Spring - you never know - London might surprise just you!

April in London

It's a wonderfully eclectic collection we bring to you this month - something for everyone we like to think... On that basis then, we are going to absolutely insist that you take part in at least one of these fabulous April events. We're sure you'll be a happier Londoner for it :)

So head over to the website to find out about hidden art galleries, an upside down purple cow and Shakespeare's Birthday Whirligig!

Also on our radar are...

Beagle - Housed in three Shoreditch railway arches, Beagle is expected to bring seasonal, British cooking - dishes unveiled so far include a whole wild sea bass with samphire and cucumber, pig’s head croquette with gribiche, and custard tart with poached rhubarb.  Restaurant opens April 8th at 397-400 Geffrye Street, E2 8HZ.

David Bowie is - There's still plenty of time to catch this popular exhibition at the V&A, including more than 60 of the great man's flamboyant stage costumes.  It runs until August 11th.

London Coffee Festival - This festival will feature pop-up roasteries, barista demos, coffee labs, festival food and live music across London from Shoreditch to Soho. Hosted at various venues, it runs from April 25th to 28th.
