Still sticking in the top spot of our ranking of UK blogs focusing on lifestyle in London is London Unattached, sharing the best places in the capital for Cocktails, Culture and Restaurants and more. With London now lit up by Christmas decorations and those local and further afield preparing for the festive season, check out which hot tickets to snap up in the city. Horrible Histories with the whole family, or something more high-brow at The Royal Opera House? Find reviews for both, and more besides, here.
Another non-mover this year is a blogger who calls the capital home – Homegirl London. Posting on Visits, Eats, Shops and Homes London can boast about since April 2012, this blog is dedicated to ‘everyone who adores this amazing city’, aiming to help new inhabitants and visitors ‘feel more at home’ themselves. London is much more than its big shopping streets, so if you are interested in exploring ‘urban hangouts and tranquil villages’ alongside the tourist hot spots, head to this blog’s Visits section and start making plans.
Still high on our radar is Babes About Town, where the multi-talented ‘curator of cool finds, activities and experiences for city kids and parents’ Uju Asika (also featuring in our Parenting and Mummy rankings) provides tips for what to do in the London area. Click through to the London, Kids, Life, Book, Food, Travel and Weekends sections for plenty of tried and tested suggestions.
