As we continue our series of best of blogs, I’m more than happy to reveal London’s top 10 – not least because I’m a Londoner and also, they show off the capital in such a great light.
And here they are:
Londonist is topical and up to the minute when it comes to what is going on in central London. It’s got a great sense of style and humour too, plus great images like this one of the new Studio 55 gallery.
Catch a Vibe is the guide to black culture and going out in London. There are lots of interviews with musicians and fashion as well.
Annie Mole’s Going Underground’s Blog is “irreverent & informative”, and award-winning. It’s all about the life and times of our multicoloured-moving-spaghetti aka the London Underground Tube network.
London Daily Photo is from Tiki Chris and shines a light on London’s more alternative face.
London SE1 is a season blog and has a great round up of what’s going on around London’s Southbank
This is a great discovery London Jazz and it’s updated daily with news and there’s lots of great photographic memorabilia. The editor is Sebastian Scotney who also blogs on the Telegraph.co.uk.
The Londoneer is all about London and also the travels of the editor so expect to see photographs of rugged landscapes and urban graffiti as well as museums and moshpits.
Tired of London Tired of Life is another microscope on London and today’s post features an old favourite cafe of mine, The Gallery which is right across the road from the Museum of Childhood – it’s run by Monks and their veg pasta is heaven on a plate.
The LGBT is a new wordpress blog but it definitely deserves a shout out here. It’s the only hub for all things Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender in the capital and can provides all the information and services you need to make your stay in London and the UK as fabulous as possible!
Visit London blog has a really comprehensive list of seasonal events for the traveller that wants to get the best out of the city.
