The Big Bumper London Bucket List


Looking for something awesome to do in London this weekend? Curious London’s bucket list is a truly excellent place to start. From swanky bowling at All Star Lanes and taking a tour around London’s only gin distillery, to trying out taxidermy and learning to fly on a flying trapeze; Curious Londoner Emily‘s bucket list is so crammed with fun you’re going to have trouble deciding where to start. We fancy a dip at Banya No.1, London’s only Russian spa.

Where to Run on Hot Days in London

When the sun’s beating down on our city, it’s tough enough avoiding pub gardens and snoozes in the park. Motivating yourself to get your running kit on and hit the pavements is even trickier. When it’s hot in London, it can feel like oozing through sweaty treacle just walking to the shop, so how can you keep cool in the heat if you’re a committed runner?

As luck would have it, the Runner’s Guide to London blog has helpfully distilled all the answers to this question in one brilliant blog post which catalogues the best spots for cool runs on hot days. From the shade of Hampstead Heath, to the cooler breezes of the Thames Path (East), this post is a real trove of cool ideas.
