The Bletchley

Bletchley

After The Bunyadi (aka the naked restaurant) and Breaking Bad-inspired ABQ, I complete the holy trinity of London cocktail bars with a visit to The Bletchley. Decorated like a WWII bunker, The Bletchley pays tribute to Bletchley Park, home of war-time codebreakers. This immersive experience will test your wits by having you solve puzzles and secret codes to earn your next drink.

So read on for some of my favorite nights out that don't revolve (entirely) around alcohol.

Never Too Late to Take a Gap Year

Gap year travel

Gap years are stereotypically reserved for those trying to “find themselves” in between life-stages as they work, play and party in sun-drenched climes. While that may be the stereotype, the reality is that you’re never the wrong age to hit the pause button on your routine, hop on a plane and take yourself to the other side of the world for some much-needed perspective. 


Finding a Great Property Investment Opportunity

It's official - I'm at that age when all my friends are starting to settle down and my social media feeds are full of baby pictures. While I am not quite ready to start a family myself, I have definitely considered other huge investments, such as buying property. Finding a place that suits you can be difficult, especially if you want to use it as an investment opportunity. Fortunately, these two criteria can often work together and it is possible to find a place that you can do up and live in.
