    Coffee is inescapable. Look on any high street and you see an abundance of cafés offering all types of coffee. So much so, that you know that this bitter but popular delicacy is going nowhere. However, the prestigious art of serving good coffee is another thing all together.

    Jamie’s Italian, in my opinion, is one of those places that have successfully combined tasty dishes but with a quality consistency that comes with being part of a chain. It is hard to do both - you get a lot of one-off restaurants serving great food, and a lot of chain restaurants serving mediocre food.

  • St. John’s Smith Square – Sonatas by Parliament

    Peter Hoffer
    11 May 2015 | 5:36 am
    Image by Peter Hoffer Located just minutes from the UK Houses of Parliament (where the cacophony of MPs barking at one another fill the Westminster air), the wonderful St. John’s Smith Square provides discerning classical music fans with a chance to feast their ears on a wide programme of concerts, festivals and recitals. Built in the early 18th century, St. John’s Smith Square is an example of English Baroque architecture. But the real joy of the building is the acoustics that makes a building of its size seem so intimate. The building even appears in the film ‘An…
  • Courtauld Gallery – Fine Impressionism

    Peter Hoffer
    11 May 2015 | 5:36 am
    Image by Peter Hoffer Fine art lovers (particularly those who love Impressionism) have few better places to spend an afternoon than the Courtauld Gallery in central London. In just a few rooms of this compact gallery, visitors will encounter such iconic works as Cezanne’s “The Card Players“, Manet’s “A Bar at the Folies-Bergère” and Van Gogh’s “Self-Portrait with a Bandaged Ear“. Fans of other works of art will not be disappointed. Although the compact gallery specialises in Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, the gallery does cover a…
  • Franco Manca – Sourdough pizza heaven

    Peter Hoffer
    11 May 2015 | 5:36 am
    Image by Peter Hoffer To enjoy top quality pizza, I find that one needs to look beyond the pizza chains and all-you-can-eat buffets that litter central London. And don’t even get me started on those places that display overpriced stale pizzas with rubbery cheese under the heating lamps – it’s a pizza travesty! When I have a pizza craving, I hop on the London Underground and travel to the west London neighbourhood of Chiswick. Making a 40-minute journey solely for a pizza may sound extreme to some, but once you experience the sourdough pizzas of Franco Manca, you’ll…
  • Skoob Books – Second-hand books (and a piano)

    Peter Hoffer
    11 May 2015 | 5:36 am
    Image by Peter Hoffer I find second-hand bookshops in London can fit on a scale with two extremes. On one side are bookshops so immaculately organised that book lovers might be afraid of taking books off shelves for fear of altering the bookseller’s vision. On the other side are bookshops so disheveled that you feel like you are exploring your grandma’s dusty attic. Located underneath the Brunswick Centre near Russell Square station, Skoob Books falls somewhere between the two ends of the spectrum. I can best describe the bookshop as ‘organised chaos’. The books are…
  • The Book Club – Beers Not Books

    Peter Hoffer
    11 May 2015 | 5:36 am
    Image by Peter Hoffer Naming your bar ‘The Book Club’ may seem an odd choice, but this hip venue in East London is no ordinary bar. By day plenty of local media types (and a few hipsters) use The Book Club as a place to plug in their laptops and have a coffee or sneak a fruity cocktail (so far, so typical of East London bars, right?). However there’s plenty more The Book Club offers to its visitors. There’s a full social calendar so that nearly every evening there is something to entertain even the most jaded hipster – blues gigs, art exhibitions, movies…

    Just go back from NEC having had a stand at the nine day Motorcycle Live event. Relieved to say it went better than expected and managed to get the new book off the ground. I have a new temporary website whilst I still try and fathom out how to redesign this one (It’s at www.nathanmillward.com). That site has all the details about how to go about getting hold of the new book, though here’s the link to Amazon… Hope you enjoy. Nathan                                    
  • New book finally here – New York to Alaska

    admin
    23 Oct 2014 | 3:14 pm
    I’ve been quiet on here for a long while, mainly because I’ve been working to pay off debts from the first trip and also because I’ve been busy over what is now almost the last 2 years trying to finish the second book; and finally, it’s ready and has just gone to print. It’s titled Running Towards the Light (Postcards from Alaska) and is about my journey on the same old Honda CT110 from New York to Alaska. It was a journey of around 6000 miles, lasting almost 3 months in total, travelling through Detroit, Chicago, along Route 66, over the Rockies, though Monument…

  • How to Be Alone in London (Despite the 8,173,941 Other People)

    She Loves London
    5 May 2015 | 3:22 am
    It’s physically impossible to be alone in London. Not “alone” as in oh, I feel so ALONE – haha! no! You’ll always have that. I mean you’ll never find yourself lacking in a defined amount of space or time that is amazingly, gloriously, joyously, incredibly, brilliantly lacking in other human beings. Because in London, other human beings are everywhere. So instead you have to make do with finding little areas of the city where it feels like you’re alone, and then spend a vast amount of time imagining that happy day when London resembles the…

    It is officially “park weather”. Park Weather is when London pretends to be summer for like a day. Park Weather means you leave the house even though it’s your official day of rest, only to find yourself sporadically whipped by gusts of wind that leave you shivering on the grass, wrapped in your portable tartan picnic blanket, looking longingly at the part of sky where the sun used to be because your bedroom window lied and it’s still absolutely bloody freezing. You know, Stupid Park Weather. Classic “park weather” All it takes is one hint of…
  • “Social Cleansing” Curfew Signs Keep Popping Up in Angel

    She Loves London
    24 Mar 2015 | 3:20 am
    Someone’s waging a mini-protest against London’s social cleansing. It looks like a Congestion Charge sign, except it’s NOT. It’s a Curfew sign and it says “Social Cleansing” at the bottom when it’s not blurred by an iPhone zoom and a moving bus, and it is, of course, not at all real. Little investigations (i.e. searching on Instagram) tell me the artist is not Islington Council, but street artist Dr D. Nevertheless, it’s keeping London commuters baffled and amused in equal parts. Yesterday it confused two policemen, who were staring at one…
  • There’s Loads of Dogs on Hampstead Heath. Loads.

    She Loves London
    8 Mar 2015 | 4:32 pm
    Last Sunday I went to Hampstead Heath for a walk. Despite what a lot of people will have you believe, there’s actually no point in going to Hampstead Heath unless you mega like dogs. Either that or you should probably own a dog, or want to talk to dog owners about their dogs, or want your dog to meet someone else’s dog so you can say how alike they look then watch them cavort and tumble and nod with feeling when one of them leaps into a pile of fox poo, which’ll definitely happen because they’re dogs and that’s the canine equivalent of going to Alton…
  • Basically, My Bit of London is Definitely Better Than Yours.

    She Loves London
    16 Feb 2015 | 1:29 pm
    When you arrive in London, either by birth or because you got the train down from Yorkshire, you are automatically assigned a side. You’re either north of the river or south, and you’re allowed to go a little bit east or slightly to the west from there. You’re allowed to jiggle around a bit, but then you must find your own little bit of London. And then you must get to know it, and stick up for it in fights. If you’ve done it right, everywhere else – even going just three stops further west on the Overground – should leave you feeling a little bit…

    London Food Blog post by Lisa Robinson There’s no doubt that London is a foodie capital of the world. From Michelin-starred restaurants and cool gastropubs to laidback eateries and fast-food joints, the city has it all! But navigating the capital’s many restaurants and their menus can often be tricky for diners who are lactose intolerant.

No matter which Soho you’re thinking of right now – London’s most central spot for a night out or New York’s most eclectic Manhattan neighborhood – it’s arguably the iconic district in both the USA’s and the UK’s biggest cities. But which Soho came first? Are the two related? Where do they take their names from? And, most importantly, which Soho are you? Let’s attempt to…

  • Living in London? You may as well be living in poverty

    Laura
    21 May 2015 | 9:17 am
    It’s official. Researchers from Loughborough University have done the maths and found that, according to public opinion on what a decent standard of living is – one that allows you to meet your basic human needs and participate in society at a basic level – Londoners are coming up short. In fact, in some places, they’re 50% worse off than everyone else in the country. Isn’t that insane? The minimum standard of living helpfully includes food, shelter and clothing – heat seems to be a give-or-take category – as well as being able to either a. buy a…
  • Review: Thai Square Spa Covent Garden

    20 May 2015 | 6:03 am
    It’s fair to say that recently I’ve been a little stressed. I’ve had three of the most stressful ‘life events’ happen in a very short space of time, so when the opportunity to visit Thai Square Spa Covent Garden arose, I jumped at the chance. A short meander from the tube station through the seemingly never-ending back streets of Covent Garden led me to the pristine-looking front doors, complete with Buddha. A happy beginning Now I have a confession to make. I have never had a Thai massage. Ever. So I was thoroughly looking forward to this one. After checking in…

David also has family there, being the northern lad he is, so after a few quick phone calls we arranged to meet with them all for a proper Sunday lunch. The train journey, and England’s terrible roads The weekend admittedly got off to a bad start. David was at a conference in Manchester and had planned to meet me, who was…

    A lot of people seem to be undecided this General Election. From those who’ve crumbled under the pressure of not knowing who to pick to run the show for the next few years, to those who are downright dissatisfied with the options available and are picking the best out of a bad bunch, I understand the reason. And I also understand the trials, fights, deaths and struggles that women especially have been through in order for me to have the right to vote. But guys, I’m not voting. I probably never will. I appreciate the struggles that those who were willing to lose their life for…
