London is a city where the unexpected meets the iconic. Whether you're a cheese aficionado or a gin connoisseur, whether you love film classics or want to rediscover architectural wonders, we've got you covered. Follow this Indytute-curated day trip to make the most of your day in the capital.
Start your day with an unforgettable cheese barge afternoon tea. Board the 96ft double decker Cheese Barge on Regent's Canal. With a selection of six exceptional British cheeses, each meticulously paired with unique condiments, you'll be in for a treat. Whether it's a pickled cucumber or a slice of poached pear, your taste buds will surely celebrate. And the carafe of house wine? Simply the cherry on top!
Head to the iconic Battersea Power Station for a sumptuous 3-course lunch at Cinnamon Kitchen. This award-winning Indian restaurant is as much a destination as the Power station itself. Expect taste sensations like Railway style veg cake or spiced chicken gnocchi. And for dessert? A signature toffee pud with garam masala ice cream is waiting for you. Don't forget the welcome cocktail!
As the sun sets, step into the world of classic films at TT Liquor in Shoreditch. The ambience here will transport you back in time, with the twinkling lights around the bar and the vintage cinema feel of the 52-seater cinema. With two cocktails per person, you can sit back and enjoy a mix of Hollywood hits, cult classics, and independent wonders.
Ready to craft your own gin? The School of Gin under the railway arches in Haggerston promises a unique experience. Learn flavour profiling, choose your botanicals, and work with masters to distill your one-of-a-kind gin. And once it's bottled and sealed with wax, the fun doesn't end there. You'll also get a gin tasting session, enjoy 4 signature cocktails, and learn about the history of gin in London.
End your night with a bang at the Dabbers Bingo Brunch Club. It's not your regular bingo – with three games, bottomless Prosecco, and a party-like atmosphere, you'll be having the time of your life. Relish the brunch main of your choice, and don't forget the Boozy Fruits edible dessert cocktail.
