Best Things to do in London
Groupon is about to award restaurants and merchants all over the world with 'Local Stars' for being the very best in their locality. All this talk of recognising the best in town inspired me to ask the bloggers who write for City Guide to give their personal recommendations for the best things to do in London. In no particular order...
Stroll Along Southbank
Visit Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium
“If there's one thing I like doing it's drinking a cup of tea and stroking a cat. It turns out lots of people are like this, which is why Lady Dinah's opened. I don't have a cat but I can pop down the cafe and feel what it would be like to be turning 50 with only feline forms of company. And that's pretty good.” - Julie Pallot @ Art Sleuth

Spend a Day in the Olympic Park and Hackney Wick
“Enjoy the juxtaposition of a nice walk around the gleamingly new and shiny Olympic park with the urban trendyness of Hackney Wick-upon-canal for a beer and a pizza after at the Crate Brewery” - Julie Pallot @ Art Sleuth

Experience Destruction Derby at the Wimbledon Dog Track
“Want good wholesome outdoor fun? Come rain or shine go watch some National Bangers Big Vans at the Destruction Derby. Drink beer, eat pie and watch a pile up with an ice cream van, three post vans and a Winnebago. You'll feel all wholesome again.” - Julie Pallot @ Art Sleuth
