Some Quirky Things to do in London
London is a momentous capital; authentic, full of culture and life, buzzing and peaceful (in comparison to some of the other major cities) and filled to the brim with attractions and entertainments. The range of activities that can be enjoyed in London are seemingly endless and the variety seemingly immeasurable. We all know about the obvious things to do in the city. Visiting the London Eye or trying to catch one of the Queen’s Guards off guard are examples. What is less known however are the underground and quirky things when could get up to. Here are but a few of these.
Being seated in a restaurant can be rather long at times. Those near the door catch an odd-but-sometimes-constant draft every time people enter and exit, while the chairs aren’t guaranteed to be very comfortable (and indeed rarely are). On top of that, nothing can quite beat the comfort of a home.
Uyen Luu seems to have understood this and as a result has converted her house into an alternative to restaurants. That’s right, instead of dining in a restaurant you’ll be seated in the comfort of a chef’s East-end flat!
The food is delightful and Vietnamese and can even be taught to customers on special days.
I may sound like an old woman admitting it, but everyone loves a market. When it comes to market’s there are few better in the world than Venn Street!
Organic and biodynamic meats, eggs and oats, amazing Creole cuisine and fresh organic fruit are but some of the joys available at Venn Street’s Sunday market.

Murder Related Road Trip
Of London’s rich history are a plethora of juicy murder tales! With that in mind, a murder related road trip is absolutely obligatory for Londoners and visitors alike.
Rent a motor from this car club Clapham based and roll down to Mitre Square in Shoreditch where Jack the Ripper’s fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes was found. Then drive over to see 186 Fleet Street where the Demon Barber of Fleet Street Sweeney Todd has his shop!
Then head over to the strand to see where the ghost of murdered actor William Terris haunts the Adelphi.
The home where Dr. Crippen murdered, mutilated and buried his wife, in Holloway is another obvious destination.
Who doesn’t enjoy a good old tea dance! Viva Cake is the simply the best place in London to get your monthly (or yearly if you’re better disciplined) fix of teatime frolics!
Immerse yourself in rock ‘n’ roll ‘50s nostalgia and enjoy a beauty bar, knitting circle, a plethora of cakes and roller tea girls! What more could a human being want?
