Thrill seekers. This one’s for you. My final birthday surprise for Alex. All he knew was to wear full length trousers or jeans, sleeves, trainers, maybe a coat in case he got cold, and to bring no bag. As we were walking from Lambeth North station he actually asked if we were going to Battersea Dogs home to walk dogs. He had absolutely no idea. And his London geography was so out..you’d expect better from a London born and bred 26 year old considering he wasn’t blindfolded. Haha. Easy to find in Archibold Park, somewhere between Lambeth North and Waterloo, the postcode will take you to one of the side entrances of the public space. All you have to do then once entering the park…

Crazy golf and mini golf always remind me of holiday. I think apart from one time when visiting one of the besties in Bristol, it’s the only time I ever play it! Yet recently it appears to have become a new craze in London’s social scene, with several pop-ups and a permanent residency opening in the city, to offer us Londoners something different to do. Alex and I decided to try one of the new spots out for date night the other week. Myself, promising not to have a strop halfway round from pure frustration at putting the ball, booked us two tickets for Junkyard Golf which is currently housed in Truman Brewery on Brick Lane.In case you don’t know – Junkyard golf has three, nine-hole…
