THE MAYOR’S LETTER<br />

A big welcome to London this January<br />

Happy new year! Our great city is set to shine with Lumiere London,<br />

the first festival of light taking place in the West End and King’s Cross.<br />

This free event will see some of the capital’s iconic architecture and<br />

streets transformed with neon, projections and magical installations.<br />

London is without a doubt the home of theatre and there are bargains<br />

to be found through the Get into London Theatre scheme, which lets<br />

you buy tickets to top productions for a fraction of the normal cost.<br />

The London Mime Festival will also be putting on a marvellous display<br />

of physical and visual theatre, from acrobatics to psychedelic puppetry.<br />

This month is also the perfect time to indulge in a spot of retail therapy<br />

as our unrivalled shops offer great deals in the January sales.<br />

If sport is more your bag, the NBA Global Games at The O2 sees the<br />

Orlando Magic and the Toronto Raptors clash on the basketball court.<br />

Whatever you decide to do, enjoy your time in our city and best<br />

wishes for 2016.<br />

Discover loads of great ways<br />

to enjoy London for under £10,<br />

and Kohinoor Sahota<br />

- EATING OUT -<br />

1 BOROUGH MARKET<br />

What started as a fruit and vegetable market<br />

1,000 years ago has grown into a destination for<br />

foodies, with many meals for under £5 (above).<br />

Stalls serve hot pasta (La Tua Pasta), stir-fried,<br />

hand-dived scallops (Shellseekers), queue-worthy<br />

chorizo buns (Brindisa) and much more.<br />

8 Southwark St, SE1 1TL<br />

2 CHINATOWN<br />

Chinatown offers a taste of the Far East in London.<br />

There are more than 80 places to eat in, not all of<br />

them cheap, so browse first. We suggest<br />

you try Baozi Inn for baozi – a steamed<br />

dumpling filled with savoury treats<br />

– and the legendary Four Seasons<br />

for Cantonese-style roast duck.<br />

Baozi Inn, 25 Newport Court,<br />

WC2H 7JS. Four Seasons,<br />

23 Wardour St, W1D 6PW<br />

3 ETHOS<br />

Choose from a buffet<br />

of meat-free dishes<br />

that are nourishing and<br />

non-processed. Options on<br />

Budget tip<br />

Escape from the cold<br />

inside Brixton Village,<br />

a covered labyrinth of<br />

affordable restaurants<br />

with a warm community<br />

atmosphere<br />

offer range from paleo to vegan and gluten-free,<br />

and everything is priced by weight (lunch costs<br />

£2.60 for 100g; dinner costs £2.85 for 100g).<br />

48 Eastcastle St, W1W 8DX<br />

4 BRASS RAIL<br />

Opened in 1966 and recently refurbished, the<br />

salt beef bar in Selfridges has a loyal following,<br />

mainly for the hot pulled salt beef Bialy roll<br />

(below), filled with salt beef, Swiss cheese, tomato,<br />

gherkin, lettuce and relish. A whole one will easily<br />

feed two, if you can bear to share it (£9.50).<br />

400 Oxford St, W1A 1AB<br />

5 SKETCH<br />

If you thought a Michelin-starred venue<br />

was out of your price range, think again.<br />

While afternoon tea here will set you<br />

back over £40, cream tea is a mouthwatering<br />

£10.50! Much lighter than<br />

afternoon tea and just as traditional,<br />

it includes scones with jam and<br />

clotted cream, served with tea.<br />

1 BFI SOUTHBANK<br />

The BFI Southbank is a paradise for filmgoers.<br />

There are screenings of old and new films, and the<br />

Mediatheque – a digital library – lets you watch old<br />

films and TV shows for free. The new 25 & Under<br />

scheme gives savings on shows and last-minute<br />

tickets (45 minutes before the start) for £3.<br />

7 Oxendon St, SW1Y 4EE<br />

3 PRINCE CHARLES CINEMA<br />

For those in the know, the Prince Charles Cinema<br />

in Leicester Square is a great find. The cinema’s<br />

two screens host all-night film marathons and<br />

singalong events – think Hairspray and Grease.<br />

It also hosts screenings of big blockbusters,<br />

black-and-white classics and foreign films<br />

with subtitles. Weekday matinees are just £8.<br />

7 Leicester Place, WC2H 7BY<br />

4 ROYAL<br />

COURT<br />

THEATRE<br />

The Royal<br />

Court Theatre<br />

has developed<br />

a reputation for<br />

cultivating new<br />

writers, with many<br />

of its productions<br />

Budget tip<br />

Get into London<br />

Theatre has tickets for just<br />

£10 for more than 40 plays,<br />

musicals, operas and dance<br />

shows – with no booking<br />

fees. It makes theatre<br />

accessible to all<br />

transferring to the West End and Broadway.<br />

This year, the theatre celebrates its 60th<br />

anniversary, and Caryl Churchill kicks off the<br />

season with Escaped Alone (from 21 Jan). Think<br />

you can’t afford tickets? Then think again – there<br />

are £10 tickets on Mondays, released at 9am<br />

online and 10am from the box office.<br />

Sloane Square, SW1W 8AS<br />

5 YOUNG VIC THEATRE<br />

If you’re a full-time student, or aged 25 or under,<br />

you can take advantage of £10 tickets at the Young<br />

Vic theatre. As the £10 tickets are limited, try to<br />

book ahead. January highlights include Macbeth<br />

(to 23 Jan), reinvented with choreography by<br />

Carrie Cracknell and Lucy Guerin. You could<br />

also buy a £10 standing ticket for performances<br />

in the Gallery, with no age restrictions.<br />

- SHOPS -<br />

1 Primark<br />

Oxford Street has two Primarks and both are big<br />

and busy with fast-fashion shoppers. Prices are<br />

low: coats start at £9 and jumpers at £6. What<br />

Primark does best is offer basic clothing at budget<br />

prices – think vests and socks. Be warned: the<br />

queues for the changing rooms and tills are long.<br />

499-517 Oxford St, W1K 7DA<br />

2 SamPle SaleS<br />

Sample sales have been going for years, so it’s<br />

surprising that so few people know about them.<br />

Largely aimed at the label hunter, they are one<br />

of the best ways to purchase a designer name at<br />

a discounted price. Most items on sale are from<br />

a previous season, but you can often get up to<br />

80 per cent off. Entrance to the sale usually<br />

costs about £2. Details of sales can be found<br />

on Sample Sale Guide or Designer Sales.<br />

samplesaleguide.co.uk; designersales.co.uk<br />

3 Charity ShoPS<br />

Buying clothes from charity shops has never<br />

been so popular – they are now a go-to place for<br />

the savvy label-loving shopper. The secret is to<br />

shop in well-to-do areas, where high-end items<br />

are often donated. The Beckhams previously<br />

donated Victoria’s Jimmy Choo shoes and David’s<br />

Dolce & Gabbana suits to the British Red Cross<br />

in Chelsea. In 2006, Keira Knightley donated the<br />

Vera Wang dress she wore at the Oscars to Oxfam<br />

in Notting Hill in order to raise money for charity.<br />

It’s not just big names, either – for under £10,<br />

second-hand items include games and crockery.<br />

British Red Cross, 69-71 Old Church St, SW3 5BS.<br />

Oxfam, 114 Notting Hill Gate, W11 3QS<br />

4 tk maxx<br />

Big names don’t have to come with big prices.<br />

TK Maxx is for fashion-forward shoppers, who can<br />

choose from menswear, womenswear, accessories<br />

and a handbag collection – all of which include<br />

big discounts on designer names. You can buy<br />

shoes starting at £7 and shirts at £10.<br />

120-124 Charing Cross Rd, WC2H 0JR<br />

5 Beyond retro<br />

Vintage clothing has become increasingly popular,<br />

with lots of stores based in Soho and east London.<br />

Beyond Retro is one of the most popular, and there<br />

are bargains to be had on both men’s and women’s<br />

clothing. There are lace gloves for £8, hats for<br />

£10, swimsuits for £9 and belts for £10. The aim<br />

of the shop is to recycle clothing, so all of the<br />

products were originally donated to charity.<br />

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL<br />

Out Of this wOrld<br />

The circus is coming to town! Sarah Riches gets set to be<br />

amazed by Cirque du Soleil’s wonderful new show, Amaluna


“AMALUNA HAS UNIQUE ACTS.<br />

THERE’S A 5FT 5IN WATER BOWL<br />

USED FOR A HAND-BALANCING<br />

AND CONTORTION ROUTINE<br />

”<br />

– RACHEL LANCASTER, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR<br />

MAIN IMAGE COURTESY OF CIRQUE DU SOLEIL. FACING PAGE, FROM TOP TO BOTTOM: TEETERBOARD © WWW.CHARLESWILLIAMPHOTOGRAPHY.COM;<br />

JUGGLERS © JEAN-FRANCOIS GRATTON/SHOOT STUDIO; MOON GODDESS © WWW.CHARLESWILLIAMPHOTOGRAPHY.COM; HOOP DIVING © JEAN-FRANCOIS GRATTON/SHOOT STUDIO<br />

The mission of the contemporary<br />

circus Cirque du Soleil is to stimulate<br />

its audience’s imagination, emotions<br />

and senses – and it’s fair<br />

to say that its latest production<br />

does just that. To celebrate its 20th anniversary<br />

at the Royal Albert Hall, the French-Canadian<br />

company is performing Amaluna. While the<br />

world premiere was in Montreal, Canada, in<br />

April 2012, this is the first time the show has<br />

been performed in the UK.<br />

Amaluna is a fusion of ama – which means<br />

‘mother’ in many languages – and luna, or<br />

moon. It’s also the name of the magical island<br />

where the show’s story unfolds. Inspired by<br />

Greek mythology, Shakespeare’s The Tempest<br />

and Mozart’s fairytale opera The Magic Flute,<br />

Amaluna is set on a mysterious island governed<br />

by a goddess named Prospera. To guide a boat<br />

of young men to the island, Prospera conjures<br />

up a storm. Her cunning plan works, and one<br />

of the men falls for her daughter, Miranda.<br />

But can their love survive being put to the test<br />

by a jealous rival? The story is brought alive by<br />

a 46-strong cast that includes an all-female<br />

eight-piece band, a professional stilt walker,<br />

a fire eater, a trampolinist and a stunt man.<br />

BEHIND THE SCENES<br />

If you think that when you’ve seen one Cirque<br />

du Soleil show, you’ve seen them all, then you’re<br />

very much mistaken. As well as jugglers, silk<br />

climbers and trapeze artists flying over the<br />

audience, this time round you can expect a<br />

teeterboard routine, a balancing act, ‘lizards’<br />

jumping through hoops and performers flipping<br />

each other like pancakes – using just their feet.<br />

The show is directed by Diane Paulus, who won<br />

a Tony Award for Best Director of a Musical for<br />

Pippin in 2013, although this is Paulus’ first<br />

collaboration with Cirque du Soleil. But if Paulus<br />

is the brains behind the show, then director<br />

of creation Fernand Rainville is the brawn,<br />

as he oversees the logistics and brings Paulus’<br />

vision to life. Artistic director Rachel Lancaster,<br />

meanwhile, is touring with the cast to ensure it<br />

JANUARY 2016 | 13


CIRQUE DU SOLEIL<br />

maintains its artistic integrity as envisioned by<br />

Paulus. Lancaster says: ‘Many surprises come from<br />

working in a big top – I even saw a stray cat take<br />

part in a performance!<br />

‘As a whole, the best artistic ideas are 50 per cent<br />

planning and 50 per cent surprises. I am lucky<br />

to work with exceptional creative talent and an<br />

incredible technical team who can bring anything<br />

to life. However, it’s only when you try out an idea<br />

that it usually gives birth to a better version.’<br />

Still, as Amaluna is Cirque du Soleil’s 33rd<br />

production, how does the team keep it fresh?<br />

Lancaster says: ‘Amaluna has a number of<br />

unique acts. There’s a 5ft 5in water bowl<br />

used for a hand-balancing and contortion<br />

routine, an all-female group strap act,<br />

women’s uneven bars and an all-female<br />

band. All of our characters are<br />

multi-disciplinary, too.’<br />

SETTING THE SCENE<br />

While watching the impossible is the<br />

highlight of the show, Cirque du Soleil<br />

wouldn’t be what it is without music,<br />

lighting and a grand set. Amaluna’s raw,<br />

edgy guitar tunes composed by Bob & Bill<br />

– also known as Guy Dubuc and Marc<br />

Lessard – are accompanied by lighting<br />

that casts shadows resembling a canopy<br />

of trees on to the ceiling.<br />

CIRCUS<br />

Whoever said that the<br />

circus was just for kids<br />

has never been to Covent<br />

Garden’s Circus (left).<br />

It’s a feast for both your<br />

tastebuds and your eyes:<br />

enjoy pan-Asian food<br />

while watching fire eaters,<br />

ballerinas and cabaret artists.<br />

Sit at the catwalk-style table, where dancers<br />

perform inches above your head.<br />

27-29 Endell St, WC2H 9BA<br />

DARK CIRCUS<br />

Using paper, ink and sand, the duo Stereoptik<br />

are visual artists who bring silhouettes to<br />

life. The story follows a ringmaster who<br />

invites a dreary city to its circus tent.<br />

Barbican, Silk St, EC2Y 8DS<br />

A dramatic set that looks like a bamboo<br />

forest includes a revolving carousel, so you<br />

can see each act from every angle. A peacock<br />

feather decoration dominates the centre of<br />

the stage, chosen because legend has it that the<br />

‘eyes’ in the tail are protective, watching over<br />

women – reflecting the theme of femininity<br />

that runs through the plot.<br />

Lancaster adds: ‘My favourite scene is<br />

Transition into Cerceau, when we go from<br />

a forest to a cave with a pool, as it reminds me<br />

of Mexico’s cenotes, or sinkholes. It transforms<br />

the space, achieved mainly by our wonderful<br />

lighting conceptor.’<br />

As for the costumes, 130 outfits blend East<br />

with West, ancient with modern and fantasy<br />

with reality – you might notice references<br />

to the Orient, Scandinavia and the UK’s<br />

Elizabethan period, along with some<br />

half-human, half-animal, lizard, peacock<br />

and fairy characters. Intrigued? Then bag<br />

a ticket now – you’ll be over the moon you did.<br />

LA SOIRÉE<br />

With so many amazing shows taking place<br />

in the capital every night, picking just one<br />

to see is tricky. But you won’t be disappointed<br />

if you choose this Olivier Award-winning<br />

cabaret show. La Soirée (below) is packed<br />

with singers, dancers, jugglers, burlesque<br />

artists, acrobats and magicians. The action<br />

takes place in the atmospheric 1920s<br />

Spiegeltent on the South Bank, where<br />

the audience sits<br />

They are close<br />

more thrilling for it.<br />

Bone says. ‘It has gone in an absolute flash.<br />

There was no magical wand to make<br />

it all happen – just a vision to<br />

create something wonderful<br />

and a huge amount of work.<br />

‘The event has grown<br />

beyond all recognition – from<br />

a few hundred hardy souls turning<br />

out to entertain a modest crowd to<br />

more than 8,000 performers, 500,000<br />

spectators on the streets and a TV<br />

audience of millions.’ One of the parade’s<br />

aims is to raise money for good causes and,<br />

so far, it has raised more than £1 million for<br />

London charities.<br />

IT’S SHOWTIME!<br />

There are 8,000 performers taking part in the<br />

parade, including drummers, cheerleaders and<br />

– aptly with the theme – a magician. Illusionist<br />

Darcy Oake, who rose to fame on Britain’s Got<br />

Talent, promises to captivate visitors: ‘The<br />

New Year’s Day Parade is massive. I have<br />

the chance to attempt my latest, greatest<br />

escape. Each time they get more difficult<br />

and more dangerous – I am upping<br />

the stakes. It’s going to be epic.’<br />

Five giant helium balloons<br />

have been specially<br />

commissioned for the<br />

event, including a mayoral<br />

figure. The balloons will<br />

tower over some of London’s<br />

most iconic buildings, each<br />

flying almost 100 feet above<br />

NEW YEAR’S DAY PARADE<br />

the streets of the West End. Joe Bone, director<br />

of event participation, says: ‘The balloons are<br />

back this year – and we couldn’t be happier.<br />

We knew how popular they used to be – and<br />

pulled out all the stops to give London a lift<br />

on the 30th anniversary.’<br />

Performers come from London and across<br />

the world. There are 32 boroughs in London,<br />

and each one is represented at the parade.<br />

The parade also offers these boroughs the<br />

opportunity to compete for tens of thousands<br />

of pounds in charity cash prizes, which are<br />

donated by the New Year’s Day Parade. There<br />

are also marching bands from high schools<br />

and universities that have travelled from the<br />

United States especially for the event.<br />

CEREMONY OF THE KEYS<br />

This 35-minute ritual, in which<br />

the gates of the Tower of London<br />

are locked, has taken place every<br />

night for 700 years. The event is<br />

free, but gets booked up fast.<br />

CHANGING THE GUARD<br />

When guards from one<br />

regiment replace another, the<br />

ritual is known as Changing<br />

the Guard. This takes place at<br />

11.15am at Buckingham Palace,<br />

usually on alternate days.<br />

HOW TO WATCH IT<br />

The parade is a free family event and sees up to<br />

500,000 people line the streets. The route begins<br />

at noon at Green Park tube station and takes in<br />

many iconic sights, including Piccadilly Circus,<br />

Pall Mall, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall. The<br />

event ends at Parliament Square at 3.30pm.<br />

For those who want the best view, grandstand<br />

tickets are available to buy and offer seating at<br />

Waterloo Place, Piccadilly and Regent Street.<br />

The show is also beamed to more than 500 TV<br />

stations across the world. Join the parade!<br />

CEREMONIES AND TRADITIONS<br />

STATE OPENING OF PARLIAMENT<br />

This tradition began in the 1500s, but the<br />

current ceremony dates from 1852.<br />

The Queen leads a procession to<br />

Westminster, and an official<br />

called Black Rod strikes the door<br />

three times before it is opened.<br />

TROOPING THE COLOUR<br />

Beginning in the 17th century<br />

under Charles II, this event,<br />

which includes musicians, horses<br />

and an RAF flypast (left), marks the<br />

Queen’s official birthday every June.<br />

Covent Garden<br />

Curtain up! As Get into London Theatre begins, visit Theatreland – home<br />

to West End shows and street performers, says Kohinoor Sahota<br />

Walk past the Royal<br />

Opera House in Covent<br />

Garden and you’ll see<br />

Enzo Plazzotta’s statue<br />

of a ballerina, which<br />

symbolises what the<br />

area is famous for:<br />

performing. Stroll along<br />

the cobbled streets and<br />

you may come across<br />

a street entertainer.<br />

On James Street and<br />

the Piazza, there are<br />

‘living statues’, mime<br />

artists and classical<br />

musicians. If you enjoy<br />

their act, show your<br />

appreciation by giving<br />

them a few pound coins.<br />

It’s hard not to be<br />

dazzled by the theatre’s<br />

bright lights, which<br />

beam the names of its<br />

latest stars. Even street<br />

signs commemorate<br />

actors: Garrick, Kemble<br />

and Kean. And as Get<br />

into London Theatre<br />

begins (1 Jan-12 Feb),<br />

offering reduced tickets<br />

to West End shows –<br />

many in Covent Garden<br />

– it’s a great time to be<br />

charmed by this top<br />

Masala Zone<br />

The area has the right<br />

mix of cafés and fine<br />

dining restaurants.<br />

Masala Zone, on Floral<br />

Street, offers affordable<br />

food – a thali, which<br />

contains a variety of<br />

dishes, costs just £11.75.<br />

The restaurant pays<br />

homage to its theatrical<br />

location with Rajasthani<br />

puppets that hang from<br />

the ceiling waiting to<br />

greet you.<br />

The Piazza<br />

Covent Garden is most<br />

famous for its market,<br />

which is in the Piazza.<br />

Laid out in 1630 by Inigo<br />

Jones, it originally sold<br />

fruit and vegetables.<br />

Today, this is a great<br />

place for souvenirs:<br />

SIGHTSEEING<br />

A TERRIFIC TOUR<br />

The Original Bus Tour<br />

(p. 36), which launched during<br />

the Festival of Britain in 1951, is<br />

65 years old this year. When the<br />

double-decker bus tour began,<br />

it provided visitors with a book<br />

to identify sights on a non-stop<br />

circular tour, but today live guides<br />

entertain you and you can hop on<br />

and off along various routes. Take<br />

in London’s iconic sights, from<br />

the Coca-Cola London Eye to the<br />

Houses of Parliament.<br />

NEVER FORGET<br />

London will commemorate the<br />

victims and survivors of the<br />

Holocaust and genocides since<br />

then on Holocaust Memorial<br />

Day (27 Jan). Events include<br />

a free lunchtime lecture at the<br />

Army & Navy Club on Pall Mall.<br />

Last year, the Prince of Wales<br />

(below) attended a 70 Candles<br />

for 70 Years ceremony to mark<br />

the liberation of Auschwitz.<br />

TRIP THE LIGHT<br />

FANTASTIC<br />

ou’ve heard of street art,<br />

Y<br />

but sky art? Lumiere<br />

London (14-17 Jan) is<br />

a free event that is set<br />

to brighten up the night<br />

as international artists create<br />

light installations to transform<br />

20 landmarks across the city.<br />

Events company Artichoke<br />

launched Lumiere in Durham<br />

in 2009. The historic northern<br />

city has hosted the light<br />

festival every two years since,<br />

but this is the first time the<br />

capital is hosting it.<br />

Artichoke’s director and<br />

Lumiere’s curator, Helen<br />

Marriage, says: ‘With its own<br />

artistic programme, Lumiere<br />

London will be very different,<br />

but the principles remain the<br />

same – it’s about bringing great<br />

art on to the streets, beyond the<br />

closed spaces of the gallery.’<br />

Locations of the artworks<br />

include the West End and<br />

King’s Cross. So far, 20 artists<br />

are taking part, including<br />

homegrown talent Julian Opie<br />

– who designed the Best of<br />

Blur album – and New York<br />

artist Janet Echelman, who<br />

has created aerial sculptures<br />

the size of buildings.<br />

Janet has created 1.8 London<br />

from thousands of feet of<br />

knotted twine – you’ll be able<br />

to change its light and patterns<br />

via a specially created app.<br />

Lumiere London is expected<br />

to rival Berlin’s Festival<br />

of Lights, Lyon’s Fête des<br />

Lumières and Vivid Sydney.<br />

To find out if that’s the case,<br />

you’ll just have to see the<br />

light yourself.<br />

food for thought<br />

Fresh from their transformation of The View<br />

from The Shard (to 31 Jan; p. 32), culinary<br />

creatives Bompas & Parr have opened the<br />

British Museum of Food – the world’s first<br />

cultural institution devoted entirely to the<br />

history, evolution, science, sociology and art<br />

of food. It is aptly located close to foodies’<br />

favourite, Borough Market. Henry Parr<br />

says: ‘Around the world there are museums<br />

devoted to specific items of food and drink,<br />

such as herrings and absinthe, but nowhere<br />

has an institution been created which seeks to<br />

embrace this crucial part of human existence.’<br />

says: ‘We don’t obey rules or standardise<br />

us to push our skills in all directions. We’re<br />

former figure skaters, so we still use spins,<br />

triple jumps, elegance, speed and power,<br />

but we use them differently.’ Seats are<br />

heated, so you won’t feel too chilly during<br />

the title role in Richard II in Stratford-upon-<br />

Avon. You can catch him, too, as the Royal<br />

Shakespeare Company’s artistic director,<br />

Gregory Doran, directs him at the Barbican<br />

(7-22 Jan). It is one of four of Shakespeare’s<br />

plays being performed to mark the 400th<br />

anniversary of the playwright’s death,<br />

which include Henry V.<br />

HEARTBREAK HOTEL<br />

A grand hall, big stage and velvet curtains<br />

your preconceptions. For starters, it takes<br />

place at the Corinthia Hotel London and<br />

is performed to audiences of 12 people in<br />

the bedrooms and corridors. As for the script,<br />

it begins with a woman with a briefcase<br />

arriving in a taxi outside the hotel. The words<br />

are taken from the hotel’s housekeeping<br />

notes, wine lists and lost and found records<br />

– hence the title. It was devised by Emily<br />

Hall, the hotel’s 2015 artist in residence.<br />

GO TO GARFUNKEL’S!<br />

I loved my first Garfunkel’s experience<br />

(p. 76), as we were seated in a comfy booth.<br />

There is a kids’ menu but I chose the adult<br />

one because I wanted a barbecue chicken<br />

wrap with chips and coleslaw. My mum<br />

chose the salmon fish cake with chips and<br />

green beans, but first we took a trip to the<br />

salad bar – there was so much to choose<br />

from, so we piled our bowls high! They gave<br />

me an activity book to work on while we<br />

waited for our food. Our main courses were<br />

delicious and the portions were large. The<br />

best part of the meal was saved until last: a<br />

huge toffee crunch waffle with two scoops<br />

of vanilla ice cream. I scoffed the lot!<br />

NIGHTLIFE<br />

GET ON THE WAGON<br />

TURNING TABLES<br />

Lots of table-tennis bars have<br />

popped up in London during<br />

the past few years and Bounce<br />

in Shoreditch is the latest. The<br />

playing area is vast and there is<br />

memorabilia including a cabinet<br />

paying homage to the creator<br />

of ping-pong, John Jaques III.<br />

Enjoy food and drink by the tables<br />

or head over to the restaurant for<br />

a more relaxed setting. The huge<br />

selection of sharing bites, pizzas<br />

and mains includes braised ox<br />

cheek and Sicilian aubergine stew.<br />

There is a range of beers and, as<br />

Bounce is close to the 18th-century<br />

home of gin production, expect an<br />

outstanding selection of gins.<br />

241 Old St, EC1V 9EY.<br />

The trend for a ‘Dry January’<br />

– with no alcohol – is on<br />

the rise, and London’s bars<br />

are creating menus for<br />

the health-conscious who<br />

want an alternative to booze.<br />

Redemption, London’s first<br />

alcohol-free bar, promises to<br />

put ‘the treat back into retreat’.<br />

Its mocktails are designed by<br />

nutritional therapists.<br />

Reminiscent of<br />

a margarita, the<br />

Coco-Rita was<br />

the first mocktail<br />

it invented, while<br />

the Lettuce Spray<br />

(inset) is a lovely<br />

Japaneseinspired<br />

drink<br />

(6 Chepstow Rd,<br />

W2 5BH).<br />

Since it opened last<br />

October, Flight Club has<br />

been the place to go for darts.<br />

Cameras film the dartboards<br />

and players, tracing the dart to<br />

work out where it lands, then<br />

tallying the score for them.<br />

Drinks are served in tankards<br />

and mugs, so when you order<br />

a virgin cocktail no one need<br />

know. Try the Hurricane<br />

Shirley – pineapple, orange,<br />

lime, passion fruit and vanilla<br />

syrup – or The Redeemer,<br />

a blend of black tea, lemon,<br />

sugar syrup and blood orange<br />

juice. Both are £5 (2a Worship<br />

St, EC2A 2AH).<br />

The recently opened Sexy<br />

Fish (above) specialises in<br />

fish, and its drinks menu has<br />

a dedicated Drivers<br />

& Minders section,<br />

starting at £7.<br />

Among the best<br />

are Kala-Cala,<br />

made from kaffir<br />

lemongrass and<br />

ginger cordial,<br />

calamansi, apple<br />

and cardamom soda<br />

and Jibber-Jabber Iced<br />

Tea – Marco Polo black tea,<br />

ginger syrup, bergamot and<br />

the Asian citrus fruit kumquat<br />

(Berkeley Square House,<br />

Berkeley Square, W1J 6BR).<br />

tasted so good!<br />

comforting mix of brandy, Frangelico, milk,<br />

selection of ‘choctails’ to thaw you out on<br />

Why not escape from the hustle and bustle of city<br />

life with a visit to one of Britain’s best-loved areas?<br />

Budget Day Trips<br />

January may be the time for saving money, but that doesn’t mean you can’t<br />

take a trip outside of London. Paul Critcher and Kohinoor Sahota round<br />

up the best day trips that cost a lot less than you think<br />

oxford<br />

Matthew Arnold’s description of Oxford as<br />

‘that sweet city with her dreaming spires’<br />

is famous worldwide. While the city is<br />

known for its university, boasting<br />

alumni from David Cameron to<br />

Michael Palin, there is more to it<br />

than its colleges. The town has<br />

been used as a location for films<br />

ranging from The Italian Job to<br />

Bollywood musical Mohabbatein,<br />

and an inspired Lewis Carroll<br />

wrote Alice in Wonderland here.<br />

getting here: London Paddington<br />

to Oxford. From £12 for a return ticket<br />

(often cheaper if you book in advance).<br />

LeSS than £10: Commonly known as Carfax<br />

tower, St Michael’s is a popular meeting point<br />

for locals. Built in the 13th century, it is one of<br />

the oldest buildings in the city. Cimb up its<br />

97 steps and you are rewarded with a<br />

beautiful view of the city (£2.50;<br />

smng.org.uk). The first Blackwell’s<br />

was created in Oxford’s Broad<br />

Street in 1879. Head inside to<br />

see Europe’s largest single room<br />

devoted to books: the Norrington<br />

Room. The shop also offers walking<br />

tours, which include a Literary<br />

Walking Tour and Historic Oxford<br />

Tour (£7; blackwells.com).<br />

Inklings – better known as CS Lewis, JRR<br />

Tolkien and other famous writers – would meet<br />

to discuss their latest works over a pint of beer<br />

(nicholsonspubs.co.uk).<br />

FOR FREE: Amble around Oxford’s cobbled<br />

streets and you’ll be struck by the architecture,<br />

from the gargoyle statues to quadrangle colleges.<br />

Sir Thomas Jackson, who designed many<br />

colleges, created one of the city’s most famous<br />

landmarks: Hertford Bridge. Popularly<br />

known as the Bridge of Sighs, like the famous<br />

bridge in Venice, it runs between two colleges.<br />

The Ashmolean Museum began life in 1678<br />

as a cabinet of curiosities for Elias Ashmole.<br />

Today it boasts Egyptian mummies and Raphael’s<br />

drawings. Currently on show is Titian to<br />

Canaletto: Drawing in Venice (to 10 Jan), and<br />

next month Andy Warhol: Works from the Hall<br />

Collection (from 4 Feb) opens (ashmolean.org).<br />

There are plenty of green spaces to visit, but<br />

Port Meadows, which has not been ploughed<br />

for almost 4,000 years, is a must. Here you can<br />

spot horses and cows, and walk alongside the<br />

River Thames.<br />

BRIGHTON PIER © VISIT ENGLAND; BRIGHTON LANES © VISIT BRIGHTON<br />

BRIGHTON<br />

Originally a small fishing village, Brighton grew<br />

to prominence during the 1770s when it became<br />

fashionable to visit to take in the health benefits<br />

of fresh air and bracing sea water. The Prince of<br />

Wales (later Prince Regent and George IV) often<br />

visited the town to bathe in its rejuvenating waters.<br />

After the construction of the railway in 1840, day<br />

trippers headed to Brighton. Today it remains one<br />

of the south coast’s busiest destinations, famous<br />

for its shops, nightlife, and pebbled beaches.<br />

GETTING HERE: London Bridge, St Pancras<br />

and Victoria. From £10 for a return ticket (often<br />

cheaper if you book in advance).<br />

LESS THAN £10: Ride the Brighton Wheel<br />

and take in all of the city at once. Rising 50 metres<br />

above the ground, the site offers panoramic views<br />

and three turns on the wheel (£8; brightonwheel.<br />

com). Wander around the Lanes, famous for its<br />

independent stores. If you want to recreate the<br />

Mod look often associated with Brighton, head to<br />

Jump the Gun for its well-priced 1960s fashions<br />

and accessories (jumpthegun.co.uk). Brighton<br />

is all about café culture, so sit back with a coffee<br />

and do some people-watching. Tea shops are in<br />

vogue: Metrodeco in Kemptown is a wonderful<br />

1930s Parisian-style tea shop serving cream<br />

tea for £5.80, and the lunch menu offers hearty<br />

sandwiches from prawn and avocado salad to<br />

toasties, which start at £5 (metro-deco.com).<br />

Gaze at sea creatures at Sea Life, where a ticket<br />

bought in advance costs £9.95 (visitsealife.com).<br />

FOR FREE: Three million people visit the Pier<br />

each year. Best known for its dolphin racing,<br />

karaoke and doughnuts, photographers flock here<br />

for wish-you-were-here images.<br />

BEYOND <strong>LONDON</strong><br />

COTSWOLDS<br />

With its rolling hills, chocolate-box villages<br />

and relative proximity to London, the Cotswolds<br />

is a national treasure. Once you are there you<br />

will fall in love with the beauty of the English<br />

countryside. The area is characterised by a<br />

rural landscape, footpaths, dry stone walls and<br />

limestone buildings throughout its villages.<br />

The name – formed from sheep enclosures (cots)<br />

and gentle hills (wolds) – is apt as it’s the luscious<br />

grassland habitat that led to a thriving wool trade<br />

in the Middle Ages, creating the area’s wealth.<br />

GETTING HERE: Trains depart from London<br />

Paddington. Moreton-in-Marsh, from £12 for<br />

a return ticket; Kemble from £25 for a return<br />

ticket; Chippenham from £26 for a return ticket<br />

(often cheaper if booked in advance).<br />

STRATFORD-UPON-AVON<br />

When you visit Stratford-upon-Avon, it feels like<br />

you’re stepping back in time. This is a town that<br />

shows off England at its most traditional, with cosy<br />

pubs, tearooms and, of course, world-class theatre.<br />

GETTING HERE: London Marylebone to<br />

Stratford-upon-Avon. From £12 for a return<br />

ticket (often cheaper if booked in advance).<br />

LESS THAN £10: England has many<br />

churches, but Holy Trinity Church<br />

in Stratford-upon-Avon is the<br />

country’s most visited parish<br />

church for one reason: William<br />

Shakespeare’s grave. Located in<br />

the Clopton Chapel, it is a modest<br />

grave (£2; stratford-upon-avon.org).<br />

Kids will love Wendy & Peter<br />

Pan (to 31 Jan) at the Royal<br />

Shakespeare Theatre, while there<br />

is also the Restoration comedy Love for<br />

Love (to 22 Jan) at the Swan Theatre. (From<br />

£10; rsc.org.uk). Head to The Dirty Duck as<br />

you may spot an actor having a celebratory pint<br />

after a show. Order fish and chips for £9.99, or<br />

sausage and mash for £8.99 (oldenglishinns.co.uk).<br />

FOR FREE: Hidden behind the Bard’s home, the<br />

Elizabethan Knot Gardens feel like a secret<br />

garden. What makes this place especially idyllic<br />

is Stratford-upon-Avon Canal – spot the swans.<br />

LESS THAN £10: The Cotswolds’ highest castle,<br />

Broadway Tower, is located in Broadway. The<br />

Gothic tower was created in the 18th century by<br />

Capability Brown. Climb to the top for a view,<br />

go below for the nuclear bunker or outdoors for<br />

the Deer Park (from £5; broadwaytower.co.uk).<br />

Painswick’s Rococo Garden was designed<br />

by Benjamin Hyett in the 1730s and contains<br />

snowdrop flowers, a children’s nature trail and<br />

maze (from 10 Jan; £6.50; rococogarden.co.uk).<br />

Chipping Campden once had the Market Hall,<br />

which was built in 1627 and was where townsfolk<br />

would trade. Today you can visit Sheep Street<br />

for independent stores offering jewellery,<br />

pottery and second-hand books<br />

(chippingcampden.co.uk).<br />

FOR FREE: Gloucester<br />

Cathedral is more than 1,300<br />

years old and was once used<br />

as a setting in the Harry Potter<br />

films. Take a fascinating guided<br />

tour of the cathedral and crypt<br />

(gloucestercathedral.org.uk).<br />

There are plenty of beautiful places<br />

to walk in – Painswick, known as the<br />

‘Queen of the Cotswolds’, is one of the most<br />

famous, and as it is surrounded by National<br />

Trust woodlands, it is a great place for spotting<br />

an abundance of wildlife. There is also the<br />

idyllic Cotswold Way, a protected path that<br />

runs 102 miles from Bath to Chipping Campden<br />

(painswicktouristinfo.co.uk).<br />

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION<br />

TICKET INFORMATION<br />

OYSTER CARDS<br />

& TRAVELCARDS<br />

An Oyster card is a pre-paid<br />

travel smart card. It’s the<br />

cheapest way to pay for single<br />

journeys on bus, Tube, tram,<br />

DLR, London Overground<br />

and most National Rail train<br />

services in London.<br />

You can buy a Visitor Oyster<br />

card before you leave home for<br />

£3 and pre-load it with credit<br />

at visitorshop.tfl.gov.uk.<br />

The system has nine zones.<br />

Zone 1 is in central London.<br />

Visitors can buy Oyster cards<br />

and Day Travelcards from<br />

stations, Visitor Centres<br />

and any Oyster Ticket Shop.<br />

UK visitors can also pay for<br />

their travel with a UK-issued<br />

contactless payment card. See<br />

tfl.gov.uk/visitinglondon.<br />

An Oyster card also gives you<br />

a 25% discount on London’s<br />

cable car, the Emirates Air<br />

Line, and a 10% discount on<br />

single journeys on most MBNA<br />

Thames Clippers river buses.<br />

See visitorshop.tfl.gov.uk.<br />
