    Image by The London Perspective Walking into The Bridge sets you back a century perhaps, but nothing gets you ready for the time warp you will encounter upon entering the second floor. It’s as if you’ve walked into an 18th century boudoir. Navigating around mismatched and opulent sofas, throne-like armchairs and purposeful dim lighting, The Bridge makes a perfect setting for some dirty gossiping over a glass of wine or some clean fun; it proved a cosy literary platform for my last book club meeting. Although the food is minimal there are plenty of sweet snacks to cast your eyes…

  • Sacre Cuore – Southern Italian pizza

    Image by Phoebe Ferris-Rotman This is my favourite pizza place in Northwest London. If you’re looking for thin and crispy then look elsewhere. Sacre Cuore is home of the Southern Italian doughy chewy crust pizza. To start, share a couple of starters. Try the burrata – a ball of buffalo mozzarella mixed with cream on a bed of rocket – and the flavoursome melanzane parmigiana. Then move on to pizza – the Tartufata is to die for. Thinly shaved mushrooms, parmesan shavings, fresh basil and truffle oil make this a must. Massive stylised light bulbs hang from ceiling around…
  • Brixton Village – Global foodie heaven

    Claire Creighton
    18 Feb 2015 | 8:55 am
    Image by Claire Creighton Since I became a teenager I have visited Brixton a good few times for gigs and club nights, until relatively recently it would always be a fleeting visit, largely due to not knowing there was anything else there and not having any friends from the area to advise me otherwise. Perched on the end of the Victoria line Brixton may look far away but is luckily easy to visit from most areas of London and I have become extremely grateful for this. Recently I have discovered the joy that is: Brixton Village. Far far away from your conventional view of a village, this is…
  • Café 1001 – Brick Lane boho

    Phoebe Ferris-Rotman
    18 Feb 2015 | 8:51 am
    Image by Phoebe Ferris-Rotman During the day people bring their laptops or books and work, read and drink coffee sprawled over one of the many mismatched sofas or lounge chairs. At night tea candles are lit and hot drinks are swapped for alcoholic drinks as people unwind and meet friends in what was once the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane. In summertime, people swamp to the outside picnic benches and the alleyway, though now that it’s turning into winter people just use the outside area to smoke – don’t worry, there is always a lovely cosy feel inside. The boho and…
  • The Tricycle – Theatre & film

    18 Feb 2015 | 8:51 am
    Image by Phoebe Ferris-Rotman The Tricycle has been running since 1980 and despite being in the northwest, far from the glamorous West End theatre hub, it has become one of London’s most adored and respected theatres. Twelve years ago a one-screen cinema was added on and in 2001 the Creative Space was built for educational workshops. The theatre’s directors try to present work which reflects the cultural diversity of its neighborhood Kilburn, a heavily immigrant area and has put on plays by Irish, African-Caribbean and Asian writers. The cinema kiosk serves ice cream and candy and…

  • 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…
  • Advice on Coping with the Stupid January Commute

    She Loves London
    8 Jan 2015 | 3:34 am
    London has gone back to work. After New Year’s Eve, at the very start of Stupid January, people start getting a bit twitchy. A bit ants-in-their-pants-y. It’s like no one knows what to do with themselves; they’re a little too used to staying in bed until the sun goes down – much more of a challenge in the summer, but still a notable achievement in winter – and suffering from a daily routine that involves shuffling from fridge, to sofa, to phone screen, to inevitable pub, occasionally rinse, repeat. “Could it be”, you wonder, shaking and…
  • FOUND: Mysterious Note on the District Line

    She Loves London
    3 Jan 2015 | 3:40 am
    “You know those letters you were on about, I found one!” These were the words of my colleague Matt as I walked into work in early December. This wasn’t long after I’d written a blog post about a nice little project where someone was leaving anonymous letters around London, filled with sentiments that would bring a little smile to your day. Then the next week, low and behold, Matt had been on the District Line to Upminster when he saw a small square of paper staring up at him from the seat. Imagine the excitement. Finding anything on the District Line that…
  • London at Christmas

    She Loves London
    22 Dec 2014 | 10:00 am
    London goes a bit mental at Christmas. The first sign that everyone is about to lose their tiny minds is the increase in suggestions that you should spend your evening traipsing across a freezing park, following a slow moving herd of pushchairs, tourists and excitable Londoners (the worst kind) into a wallet-rinsing, fairy-light-twinkling, pedestrianised festive version of the M25, where you’ll pay £6.50 to drink mulled wine out of a polystyrene cup while the smell of overpriced Bratwurst wafts up your nostrils from a nearby wooden hut. I am, of course, talking about Winter…
  • To Make London Better We Should All Basically Write More Letters

    She Loves London
    19 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    I like writing people letters. So at the beginning of this year I got hold of my mates’ addresses, bought a load of envelopes and stamps and decided to start sending them things in the post. I’m a bit rubbish with remembering birthdays, so usually it’d just be random cards saying hi, or thank you, or crappy Valentine’s Day from Oscar the Grouch; or congratulating them on not killing their first outdoor plant, but occasionally there’d be one to commemorate something really really important or a momentous life event. Everyone likes getting post, but not…
