Well, it’s now February and winter is biting hard. Christmas is a dim memory, as are our celebrations for New Year. The weather outlook is windy, cold and rain, with little sign of sunshine for a while.
I sat down to pull together this months free crawl and thought, what would be good right now?
I called Troy, who is sitting on a beach in Thailand on a well earned break (lucky bastard) and asked his opinion. Through a haze of Chang beer came a mumbling
“something warm Jonno, something warm”.
He is right and then it dawned on me……Hampstead!
Hampstead is such a lovely village, just north of the city and is a wonderful place to wander around on a bleak Sunday afternoon.
And the pubs, what could be better? Starting on the High Street with the King William IV, slip into Flask Lane for a pint of Young’s in The Flask, wander the back streets to the Old White Bear and weave your way through more alleys to finish off at the Holly Bush.
Sounds good doesn’t it? Well download our Free Hampstead Village Pub Crawl in London, grab your Oyster card, put on your warm coat and catch the Tube up to Hampstead. It makes for a great Sunday afternoon walk, or a pleasant night out.
February kicks off with Chinese New Year in China Town on Sunday 6th. I always liked this colourful, brash and noisy celebration and this year is the year of the Rabbit. Festivities begin at midday in Trafalgar Square and continue around Chinatown. Check Time Out London for more details.
And on things Chinese, why not try a Tsingtao beer in celebration!
