10 Things to Do in London this Summer

An American perspective on the best things to do in the Summer in London from Love and London blogger Jess. This is a handy watch for tourists to our town but it’s also packed with ideas (and a few wry smiles) for locals, with a few of blogger Jess’s favourite rooftop bars, afternoon tea spots and outdoor activities too, from cycling in Hyde Park, to catching something dramatic at Regent’s Park open air theatre. It’s always great to get a (slightly) outside perspective – a great way to see the city through fresh eyes, take a look and get exploring!

A London Ex-Pat’s View of Brexit


She may have grown up in the Philippines but The Girl Next Shore blogger Honey is London to the core and has plenty of thoughts on Britain voting to leave the EU. With London one of the few majority “Remain” locations in England, our city is at odds with many English individuals, posing a real quandary for the capital. Amidst all this turmoil, Honey has put together a very interesting and thoughtful blog about her feelings regarding Brexit and her experience of being an ex-pat in London for the past ten years. Thanks for sharing, Honey!
