London Bridge

In the past fortnight, I’ve cried for hundreds of strangers who have lost children and loved ones, including in a despicable attack at a funeral. Last night, things were closer to home. This time meant checking that friends were OK. It meant a sleepless night waiting for my boyfriend, working for the emergency services, to … Continue reading London Bridge


Sail Loft, Greenwich

I had been to the Sail Loft once before, because Greenwich is far and away the nicest part of London and, right on the river, this was a lovely place to go for a drink on a summer evening.

It aims to capture the spirit of American bars in the twenties, when prohibition led to the … Continue reading BYOC ft. James Cochran


16 Goals in 2016: Half-Year Progress

1. Visit fifty new places. I checked my list two days ago and saw the last thing I wrote was Puerto Banus, which was in March, so obviously I have forgotten a bunch. I think my favourite new places are the Tattershall Castle, the pub on a boat; Dublin, because it was great to see … Continue reading 16 Goals in 2016: Half-Year Progress
