F1FTY ASKED DAVID TO FILTER OUT SOME OF HIS FAVOURITE PLACES IN THE CITY...
"An atmospheric events space under Waterloo Station which always has something intriguing + unique on in the field of immersive + alternative theatre, mostly with a real sense of having discovered a secret, welcoming community. The perfect weeknight adventure."
"In Elephant & Castle, a mix of indoor + outdoor spaces meld craft markets + craft beer. Checking what's on you'll find the ideal busier or quieter times as well as upcoming craft stalls + music events. All sustainable + with more soul than the Boxpark initiative. Ideal for lazy Sundays, birthday gifts + catch ups."
THE GRANT MUSEUM OF ZOOLOGY
"My vote for best lesser-known London museum goes to the Grant Museum of Zoology. Aware that I am easily in danger of overhyping this to the uninitiated; on the one hand, it is simply a collection of taxidermied specimens. On the other hand, this is life itself! The collection offers a fascinating stroll at your own pace through a magnificent hall of nature's oddities + its beauty."
