My latest project is Twitch. I have set up a Twitch channel and, much to my children’s horror have launched myself into the world of streaming. I am currently the UK’s fastest growing Twitcher (not to be confused with bird-watching).
My favourite place to eat with family is Cay-Tre in Dean Street, Soho. We are slightly obsessed with Pho and, in my opinion, nobody makes it better.
My favourite London shop is The Conran Shop in Marylebone. It’s just a cornucopia of things that I didn’t realise that I needed until I laid eyes on them.
My fave place in London is Lord’s Cricket ground when a Test Match is on. It’s my happy place.
In wider regions, I would reccomend a visit to the Lake District. In my latest book- Such Miserable Weather, I drove all over England and I think that the Lake District took the prize for wow factor. On your way there take a detour to the Lawnmower Museum in Southport- England’s weirdest museum.
I’m a walker and I tend to walk everywhere in London if I have the time. I used to taxi everywhere but since I hiked for 27 days across Lebanon for my book The Downhill Hiking Club, I have rather caught the walking bug. It’s the random discoveries and encounters that I love so much.
A #LondonLifeHack is to take a walk along the Regent’s Park Canal from Little Venice to Camden Market. Not only is it a fabulous walk but you go through London Zoo and often get the chance to chat with an animal.
