    London Nightlife

    On my last two visits to London I've gone to a Christmas pantomime in London. Last year we went to Hackney to see the most well known pantomime actor, Clive Rowe, in Mother Goose. It was an evening performance and filled mostly with adults and while enjoyable I hadn't really felt the need to go to another. That is, until one of my Facebook friends...

  • A Refined Drink in London

    One night when I was staying at my favourite London Hotel (Grange City), I walked past the Chamberlain. It looked like a nice up-scale establishment and I thought I would pop in to have a pint. Inside are a series of rooms, many with bookcases full of books. Real books. I went up to the bar and discover that they do craft hand-pulled ales and...

  • Ronnie Scott's

    This is one of the world's greatest, most famous jazz clubs. Founded by the legendary British saxophonist Ronnie Scott in 1959, this club has been in business continuously ever since. Here, I had the privilege of seeing a number of the greats of jazz, including a few who are no longer with us. Not too formal, but not too casual. Wear a nice shirt...

  • Pizza Express: More than Just Pizza

    Pizza Express was founded by Peter Boizot, an entrepreneur who is also a serious jazz lover. This pizza chain is all over the UK. The restaurant in Soho hosts some of the top-notch touring jazz stars. With a big-name jazz player performing here, and another one at nearby Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, you may have a difficult choice.In addition to great...

  • Going through Canary Wharf

    Okay, I know were not allowed to, but I set my new camera on 'movie mode' and held it facing out of the windscreen whilst Chris drove through Canary Wharf. I had to put the camera down each time Chris spotted one of the many security guards around; I didn't want my camera taken off me, did I. But it's not like we are setting out on doing Canary...

  • Watching the world of Canary Wharf

    We love sitting down this little side road on the way to Lewisham, we are right next to the Millenium Dome here, and right opposite my beautiful Canary Wharf. We have tried taking photos from here before, but they never came out very well, now, with our new camera, I think we'll get some brilliant far off photos!

  • A night out at Heathrow

    When I had been living with my hubby for the first few months, when he was still only my boyfriend, he decided that we'd go for an evening out at Heathrow airport. It seems quite funny really, until that night, I just thought it was somewhere for people to come and go out of the country. I'd never atually been to an airport before.Anyway, we parked...

  • Dr Feelgood & The Hamsters

    I went to see Dr Feelgood with a load of my girlfriends from The Nags head.There was us girls and some of the wives and girlfriends of The Windsor chapter Hells Angels. We had a ball!I have to admit that Dr Feelgood were nowhere near as good as their support band The Hamsters, a group that we often used to have in The Nags Head. The Hamsters were...

  • The Rolling Stones at Wembley

    I also went to see 'The Rolling Stones at Wembley, with my brother Paul and his wife Corrie, two years later in the summer of 1990. I was having an emotional crisis at the time, heartbroken over a 'boy' called Mathew and so didn't really enjoy myself this night. The only bits I can remember is: not being able to see the Stones, even though we were...

  • Wembley Stadium & Pink Floyd

    Wow, the day that I went to see PINK FLOYD at Wembley Arena has to be the best day of my life so far!I was staying at my mum's at the time in the middle of moving addresses after leaving my old boyfriend Pete. I spent the afternoon making love with the sexiest man that I have ever met until the present day, he only had to kiss me and I wanted him...

  • London Pubs

    I Didn't get to spend as much time at the pubs as I would have liked, but here are a few that I remember...1. Allsop Arms 137 Gloucester Pl, Marylebone - What I think of as a traditional pub. Dim Smoky interior, good selection of beer and wine. Standard bar fare. The best thing about the AA was its location -directly across from our hotel. How...

  • Royal Albert Hall

    Prince Albert was Queen Victoria's royal consort, a close adviser and strong patron of the arts. His premature death from typhoid, in 1861, at the aged of 42, was a terrible blow to the British people. In their grief, they constructed this hall in his memory.It is one of the world's greatest concert halls. The acoustics are as good as anywhere. The...

  • A great meeting place

    The Porter House has been used a lot by friends of mine, as their farewell venue. It's easy to find and is fairly big so you can find your own little corner and just talk & drink away the night.They have live music on wednesdays and most weekends - sometimes an organised band, sometimes just a group of musicians (Irish) who just sit around and...

  • If you're going to go clubbing

    When I first came to London I was staying in an area known as The Elephant & Castle. Kind of a dodgey part of London and a bit grim but it was cheap and close to the centre. Nearly every Friday and Saturday night I was often asked by people as I came out of the tube station, for directions to a place called Ministry of Sound... Of course at the...

  • Theater

    Please, please, please, go to a live theatrical production, it is an excellent value, and memorable experience. There are several places to book tickets, some restuarants offer ticket and dinner packages. I would say casual for the matinee's and upscale casual for the evening shows, (collared shirts, no tank tops, halters, baseball caps or...

  • Jewel in London

    Amazing decor and yes it has "jewels" everywhere. It's a great place to met up with a bunch of people for a drink after work. Cos more often than not you'll end up staying there and listening to the live entertainment they have later in the evening. Smart casual. We have never had any problems getting in but I imagine that if you looked rough...
