My London 2015 Bucket List

31 Jul 2015

'When a man is tired of London, a man is tired of Life'
- Samuel Johnson

Some wise words from Samuel Johnson there.

There is nowhere else I want to be when I graduate. Of course, I have to be realistic and consider living costs and a graduate salary, but I really, really want to live in London in my early twenties. There's just no place that's as buzzing, as full of life and as full of endless possibilities. As I live just over an hour away, I've decided to write a little bucket style list of things to do and places to go before I go back to university in September. Please comment below with your recommendations if you have any, I know there are a lot of London bloggers out there!

1. Sky Garden
- Complete! You can read about it here.
We all know what it is and every blogger in existence has probably blogged about it. I can now confirm that The Sky Garden is officially BOOKED for two weeks time. Eeeee!

2. Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon
She's just great, isn't she? I absolutely need tickets to see this exhibition and I will not set foot back in Leeds for University until I have been.

3. Pillow Cinema
I don't understand how people can just 'not be a film person'. Going to the cinema is a hobby, no matter what anyone says (although I probably shouldn't write it on my CV).

4. Go and see a show 
- Bend It Like Beckham has been seen and was spectacular. My post on it is here.
I've been fortunate enough to see The Lion King and Matilda in the past twelve months, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to go to another show! At the top of my list now are High Society, The Importance of Being Earnest, Billy Elliot, and Bend it Like Beckham.

5. Urban Food Fest
Are you surprised that it took me till number five on my list to mention food? International street foods in Shoreditch car park apparently, what's not to love?

6. Sample the London Nightlife
Despite having friends who go to uni in London, I've never actually properly sampled the nightlife and I'm getting old now. Well, too old for clubbing.

7. Go on the London Eye
I think the first and only time I went on this was ten years ago.

8. The Shard
This has been on my list f o r e v e r. One day!

9. See a film under the stars
I think I might need to find myself a boyfriend for this one, but there seem to be lots of open air cinemas in London this year and I would love to try one out myself.

10. Fancy Afternoon Tea
At either Bea's of Bloomsbury, Mandeville Hotel, Selfridges or The Delaunay.

11. The Emirates Air Line Experience
Apparently there is a 'night flight experience' which happens after 7pm and you get extended time in the cable cars to see the city at night!! Fantastic!

Remember to let me know your suggestions!
