Things To Do In London This Spring

Spring is official here and I could not be more excited. I'm completely over the long winter, short days and shiver-inducing weather. April heralds the arrival of spring and the end of hypernation, and it gives us the promise of long days full of sunshine(as much sunshine we can have in Landan). Is finally time to put our sunglasses on, grab our favorite frap and enjoy our city. Even though London has the reputation of being dull, as soon as the sun is out it transform to a place of bliss with endless things to do from morning to night.

Highlights this months includes a cocktail cruise, enormous amount of caffeine at the London Coffee festival, allow your self to get lost in the many food markets and explore food from all over the world.

London Coffee Festival.
Even though British people are slightly obsessed with tea, we definitely need a shot or two well on Mondays three shots of caffeine. So a festival that celebrates the reason (coffee) we get out of our beds in the morning is definitely a must.
Details: 7-10th April | Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Ln | £14.50

Cocktail Cruise 
Sip on Margaritas whilst cruising down the river on a two-and-a-half hour trip. There will be an abundance of alcohol which is absolutely perfect for borderline alcoholics like me or for people who like to have only few, and also plenty of cheeses from Neil’s Yard. 
Details: 2nd April – 7th August | £20-40 


Dinerama is back y'all.
Dinerama is a food market that last all day and night long with multiple roof terraces, cocktail bars, food shacks. Time to staff our faces and drink till we can't anymore.
Details: Every Thurs/Fri/Sat | 19 Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, EC2A 3EJ | free before 7pm, £3 entry after 7

Urban Food Fest 
If you are a foodie then this is place to be this spring. 
This delightful urban food fest has a variety of food traders to get your mouth watering. You can find Italian burgers, cheese toasties brioche lobster rolls, brownies,chocolate covered waffles, delicious pancakes.

CircusFest 2016
CircusFest is also back in town, with an extraordinary programme that's bursting through the rafters with high-flying international circus. This year is slightly morbid and includes lots of black humour with wheel of death and a human catapul.
