My London Adventures


Last Updated: 19 August 2017

I moved to London at Christmas 2016, and since then I’ve been out and about exploring the city, trying new things and meeting new people.

This page therefore gives a summary of things I’ve been up to in the city in that time, with links to relevant blog posts or videos where possible. It should give you a good sense of the variety of stuff I’ve been up to already. You can also browse all of my London blog posts, watch my London videos, see my London photos, and browse a list of London websites that I’ve bookmarked.

If you know of something that I haven’t covered, that you think I ought to check out, then please feel free to tweet me to let me know, I’d love to hear about it!

Tube Stations

Based on an idea from Geoff Marshall, I’ve been ticking off the Tube stations that I’ve been entering or exiting. Stations I’ve used only as interchanges do not count – I must have crossed the gateline and done something specific in the local area near the station.

Click here to see my map (PDF) with the used stations highlighted. If you know of anything interesting I should look for around stations that I haven’t yet visited, feel free to tell me so I have good reason to go there. I’d love to tick all the stations off eventually!

TV & Radio Audiences

Walkabouts

I love having a good stroll around the city, there’s so much to see. All of these have been solo walks except where indicated otherwise.

Before 2017

I have visited London in the past of course, so here are a few visits that I’ve made blog posts or videos about.

Outside London

Since moving to London, I’ve travelled out of the city to these places:

  • Guernsey (to see friends)
  • Southend (having an adventure for All The Stations)
  • Torquay (to see friends)

I’ve also posted videos of me travelling to these places in previous years:
