8 New Year’s Resolutions For London This 201830th December 2017
It’s that time again when we light up those fireworks and say hello to the New Year. Resolutions are on everybody’s mind; whether it’s to take up a new hobby or finally get through your reading list, it always ends the same… You give up as soon as it’s February. In this post though, we want to try and give you some other options for New Year’s resolutions for London. Whether you live in London or are about to move here, this 2018 is filled with amazing things to do in London.
1. Go to the Theatre at least once
Remember that show you really wanted to see last year? Well, it’s probably still running on London’s West End so why not head on over in 2018! There is a vast array of shows on London’s West End, and if you love a bit of music, costumes and acting then 2018 is the year to finally get to a show (or several…). It actually doesn’t even have to break the bank… Check out our socials because we’ve got some pretty amazing theatre events (Alladin, Dream Girls, Wicked) at special members rates just for you…
2. Drink more tea
Did you know that London has a 300-year-old tea shop? We didn’t either, but now that we do we want you to check it out at least once in 2018. Twinings tea shop at 216 Strand has been selling tea for centuries when Thomas Twining began importing goods from India to the UK. They became so popular that the Queen even granted the company a royal warrant and the company has been serving tea to the royal family ever since.
3. Drink better and drink more
London is filled with amazing pubs, bars, and clubs. In fact, people travel all over the World just to be here for special events or to have a great weekend at some of London’s finest drinking spots. From centuries-old Pubs to brand new, modern bars, London is dotted with anything and everything you are looking for in 2018. For something a little different in 2018, try out God’s Own Junkyard which you just have to see to believe. Check out the photo below for a little taste of what to expect…
4. Watch London light up
Lumiere London is on the 18-21 January in 2018 and it’s going to shine! London’s light festival brings London city to life with spectacular designs, colours and sounds. Find yourself weaving your way around the city finding each new light sculpture and immerse yourself in the UK’s largest light festival.
5. St Patrick’s Day in London
If you’re not lucky enough to find yourself in Dublin on St Patty’s Day, then London is a pretty good alternative. Get dressed up in your best green clothes, put on your drinking hat and get ready for a great evening celebrating this fun (and sometimes messy) event! Here at Thinking Bob, we do St Patrick’s Day right – make sure you’re around to see what we get up to or come along and see what it’s all about and meet some new friends along the way.
6. Learn new things
In 2018, experience and learn new and exciting things at many of London’s museums and galleries. London has some of the best museums in the World and if you haven’t been to any yet – 2018 is definitely the year you try one out! There are several to choose from like the Tate Modern if you love art or The Natural History Museum and Science Museum if that’s more your cup of tea. Speaking of tea, after a day at the museum why not pop into Twining Tea at 216 Strand (no.2 on this list!).
7. Go to a festival
2018 could be the year you get to wear your wellies and dance all day long in the park like at Wireless Festival. But if that’s not your thing then don’t worry about bringing those wellies because London has loads more on offer for you. Check out Pride for a day of fun and laughter or Notting Hill Carnival for lavish costumes and delicious street food.
8. Join Thinking Bob
