Camden Food Awards 2017

My pick of Camden’s best restaurants and bars for 2017.

One of my favourite things about Camden is its food scene. It’s certainly never dull! From egg porn brunches to exotic cocktails, street food and mesmerising ice cream, I’ve eaten my way around Camden all in the name of research. So whether you’re looking for an awesome Sunday roast, Camden’s best curry house or just need to grab a quick coffee to start your day, enjoy my guide to Camden’s hottest food and drink spots.

Camden’s Best Brunch: Leyas, Camden High Street 

I’ll admit this was a tough category to judge! Camden has some great brunch spots, with special mentions going to The Blues Kitchen (for when you need a big feed) and Made Bar and Kitchen at the Roundhouse. But for the best coffee in Camden, Instagram-worthy egg porn and delicious smashed avo on toast, head to Leyas.

Winter Events 

Christmas may have been and gone but there are still some great wintry events in the capital. The Winter Festival continues at the Southbank Centre, with one of the highlights being Adventures in Moominland. The fun exhibition invites people to get lost inside the eccentric world of Moominland with a chance to clamber through forests, huddle in caves and set sail on the high seas! If you’ve not squeezed in a spot of ice skating over Christmas, many of London’s best ice rinks are still open for a little while longer.

Top 10 Things To Do In London In December 2016

The best events, food, music and festive cheer in London in December 2016.

London’s ice rinks have reappeared, the lights are on, shoppers are maniacally doing Santa’s work for him and everyone’s knocking back mulled wine like it’s water. It might feel like all eyes are on the 25th now, but in the run up, there are still plenty of things to do in London this December.

Go Ice Skating

From the historic settings of the Tower of London, Hampton Court and the Natural History Museum to the magical illuminated rink at Canary Wharf, there are plenty of opportunities to get your skates on this month. For a really glam experience head to Somerset House and enjoy a Fortnum and Mason’s afternoon tea after skating on the rink in the courtyard.

Christmas In London: London’s Best Ice Skating 2016

Get your skates on – London’s ice rinks are open and ready for another festive season. 

Nothings shouts ‘It’s CHRISSSSSSTTTTMMASSSSSS’ more than skating around like an ungraceful swan on a surface that wasn’t made for humans to stand on… but there’s no denying, Christmas is back and the ice rinks are frozen and ready for action.

Do you love nothing more than flying around on the ice? Perhaps you’re more of an edge clinger-oner? Or, maybe like me, your favourite part is looking after the coats while drinking a bucket of mulled wine? From the historic setting of the Tower of London to the funky LED rink at Canary Wharf, it’s time to check out some of the hottest, no wait, coolest ice rinks in London this winter.

The Best Ice Rinks In London

Tower of London Ice Rink

I visited this ice rink a few years ago and there’s no denying the setting is just SO stunning. The rink is located next to the outer walls of the tower, so after checking out the beefeaters and crown jewels, it’s a lovely place to let off some steam. This year they’ve constructed the fabulous Eis Haus – a pop up ice bar where you can sip on icy cocktails while wearing cosy fluffy coats!

Price: £8.55 (children), £12.15 (adults)
Dates: 16th Nov – 3rd Jan
