The October Round-Up - What to do in London

If you often find yourself wandering around London then you’re bound to have noticed the beautiful places and amazing restaurants and cafés the city has to offer. If you haven’t yet or wish to discover some more, then read on because we are about to share with you the 3 things we loved doing around London this month.

 

I. Head over to the Natural History Museum

Situated in the beautiful area of South Kensington, the Natural History Museum is a must see in London.

This Month we decided to pay a visit to Hope the Whale, the newest member of the NHM’s family, who now occupies Dippy the Diplodocus’ previous place in the entrance hall. Not only did we admire - once more - the museum’s amazing dinosaurs and exotic animal collections, but also the astonishing Victorian architecture of the place. If you’ve never been, trust us you will not be disappointed.

II.Beauty and the Feast

Our favourite October night out was definitely the Sunday evening we spent feasting at the immersive dinner Beauty and the Feast

Held in the arty underground tunnels beneath Waterloo station, known as The Vaults, this is certainly a night that you will (or not depending on the amount of cocktails you have had) remember. Thanks to the collaboration of the designers at Darling&Edge, supperclub experts Grub Club and the amazing performers you will spend a night of eating and drinking whilst enjoying a memorable show.

III. Lunch at Caravan (full review coming soon)

One of the best places where we have eaten this month is without any doubt at Caravan King’s Cross

 The restaurant and coffee house is located in a charming Grade II Victorian grain store, where the chefs create truly succulent dishes. For the time being, we can’t tell you more about the lunch experience we had there, however our full review will be up soon!

 

Honourable Mention:

 

October was the month dedicated to the launch of our Kickstarter campaign which will be funding our very first automatic watch range.

On the 10th of October, after a year of researching, sketching and designing our automatics, we were finally ready to release our campaign.

The prospect of Kickstarter was as daunting as it was exciting, this crowdfunding platform being based on the “ all or nothing” concept. However, only 6 days in we were 100% funded. Three weeks later, we are now over 160% funded. And this is all thanks to you guys.

Recently one of our favourite magazines, Courier, held their second annual ‘Courier Live’ event at Republic London.

It was a great day featuring a ton of cool business, from jacket makers who sell out within minutes, to healthy juices and brutally honest greetings cards. If you weren’t able to go then we thoroughly recommend joining next year.

If you know anything about Camden Market, you probably already know that it’s a hub for vintage and alternative fashion. Camden Market is, and was, one of the best places to go for independent fashion brands, well-kept vintage pieces, and alternative style. 

From mod to punk, cybergoth to bohemia, modern and vintage fashion blended together, inspired by the music and culture coming out of Camden.
