My London Bucket List 2016

30 Jun 2016

The time has come for my annual London Summer Bucket List. I made one last year, I've made one this year and I will make one every goddamn year until I have ticked everything off my list. I had a look at my 2015 Bucket List the other day and realised how gushy I am about the city, so I'm going to tone it down a notch this year and just say that I am absolutely buzzing/over the moon/excited/happy/ecstatic about moving over there at some point in the near future. There seem to be so many opportunities in London to go places, meet people, eat wonderful food, drink wonderful drinks, be all cultural and just have a fab time in general, so I've had to narrow my list down a bit to just 10 when really it should be about 50.

1. Open-Air Cinema

This is very touch-and-go because the weather is so god-awful in England but I just think the atmosphere would be so lovely and chill (so long as it wasn't raining). The Nomad Cinema, The Luna Cinema, and Rooftop Film Club are all looking promising, and appear to be showing a range of classics and very recent films, but we'll just have to see.

2. Pergola on the Roof

On the website, Pergola on the roof is described as 'an incredible food court set 170-feet-high under a canopy of flowers and filled with some of London's finest restaurants.' Seriously, how could anyone not want to go there?

3. See Guys and Dolls

Anyone that has been reading my blog for a while will know that I am big on musicals. I mean, big. This year, Aladdin The Musical is on the cards with my family, but I'm also dying to go and see Rebel Wilson star in Guys and Dolls.

4. Sample London Nightlife/Bars

Honestly, it is shameful that this still hasn't been ticked off my list. Shameful. I'm looking forward to this when I actually move to the city, and I'm looking forward to meeting a load of new people.

5. Fly down some tunnel slide

The ArcelorMittal Orbit is apparently Britain's largest structure, it's part of the Queen Elizabeth Country Park and you can go down this great big slide so that sounds super fun.

6. Revisit Madame Tussauds

We have this god-awful picture of me, my brother and my sister standing next to Johnny Depp about ten years and I finally got a new picture the other day when I went with my friend. I'm now almost taller than him which is kind of funny.

7. Notting Hill Carnival

My social media feeds are always full of photos from the Carnival over Summer time and I'm determined to go this year.

8. The Shard

Yep, still have not fulfilled this wish which I've had ever since it opened. There was one time I nearly got there, but it was a spontaneous decision and I was wearing converse trainers. Big no.

9. Harry Potter Studio Tour

Yet another unfulfilled wish. My life is so difficult, isn't it?

10. Cocktails in the City

I heard of the one in Leeds, not the one in London but either way, I love a good cocktail and I'm sure I would be completely and utterly in my element if I went to this event.

There's so much more going on in London than what's in my bucket list and I would love to hear your recommendations in the comments! What's your favourite thing about London in the Summer?
