Little Nan’s Bar

All over London there are hidden gems. Little restaurants you may not have heard of, museums showcasing weird and wonderful items and bars that will serve you the world’s greatest alcoholic beverages in pretty much any receptable you can imagine.

Afternoon Tea at Luton Hoo

Beautiful, lavish and elegant are not words traditionally used to describe Luton. In truth, my birth town has a pretty bad rep, having won some less than pride making awards including ‘Worst Town Award 2004’. WICKED. But also, it birthed ME so it can’t be all bad eh?! Additionally, just a mere hop, skip and a jump away from London, on the outskirts of Luton, lies the gorgeous Luton Hoo. Once owned by diamond magnate Sir Julius Wernher it’s now a stunning hotel, spa  ...
