London calling

A never ending story of the city I love and lived in for 5 years

Two landmarks for the price of one. The shard and tower bridge, both can be seen from the walk down to St Katherine’s Docks, a little known marina with a great pub called the Dickens Inn. Highly recommend for a pint in the sun.

The view from Ally Pally. A super steep hill to climb on a bike, but well worth it for the panoramic view of London.
Alexandra Palace
I’m a history nerd, and London truly is one of the best cities to learn about the history of the world. This church dates back to 1730, if only those walls could speak.
St Anne's Church, Limehouse
Comedy in London is also top notch. This venue regularly used to (pre covid) show up and coming comedians for really affordable prices. Fun fact: It’s where Phoebe Waller Bridge first performed Fleabag.
Soho Theatre
Some of the worlds most famous music venues are here. This is printworks, a former industrial factory that is now used for huge raves. This picture is from a day rave I went to in January to see Maribou State, but it was Folamour that truly stole the show. The lights were awesome.
Moving to London made me fall in love with curries. There are so many awesome places to choose from. This particular restaurant was featured on the Netflix series, Chef’s Table. We had to wait 6 months for a reservation. Worth it.
Darjeeling Express
I love to visit the Barbican Conservatory on Sunday’s when it’s open. It’s completely free, and so relaxing and beautiful. The cacti have grown so big they’re hitting the roof.

London Fields Lido is the perfect place to refresh yourself after a busy weekend. For me, something about swimming laps in the great outdoors is restorative.

More gigs. This is from last December, when I went to see my fave band, the Libertines with my best pal. We’ve both loved them since we were at school together and always go to see them play when we can.
O2 Academy Brixton
There’s a pretty big netball scene in London and you can pretty much play any where, any day. This is my team goofing around after we won the league in Haggerston. We played together in various leagues around east and north London before covid.
Haggerston School
And obvs you must celebrate in the pub after... our ‘sponsor’ was the most amazing pub that serves really great modern British cuisine. Worth a try if you’re ever in the neighbourhood.
