About Memoirs Of A Metro Girl
Welcome to Memoirs Of A Metro Girl, a culture, lifestyle and travel blog about experiencing and living in London for both residents and visitors.
Having being born and brought up in London, I am fiercely patriotic to the city and wouldn’t dream of living anywhere else.
After working for years as a journalist, I started this blog in spring 2012 to write about the things I have a passion for. I see Memoirs Of A Metro Girl as a celebration and exploration of the history and attractions London has to offer – some well-known on the tourist trail, but also some hidden parts off the beaten track.
The blog features guides to the capital’s festivals and special events, reviews of bars, restaurants, new openings, pop-ups, as well as include a historical and architectural backdrop when possible. Yes, I cover a wide range of things in my blog. However, like many Londoners, I’m not to be pigeon-holed and have a wide range of contrasting interests (e.g. I love clubbing and history). So I may not have a USP when it comes to my blog, but I aim to provide content to appeal to different interests.
Every month (except during the pandemic), I publish my guide to the best events on in the capital – festivals, open houses, exhibitions, etc, to help you make the most of your free time or visit to London. Click here for the latest guide. I have no interest in being seen as an ‘influencer’, but I aim to educate and inspire people who live, work or are visiting my hometown.
As much as I adore London, I also love leaving it! I am an avid traveller, have enjoyed spells working overseas, and have visited nearly 50 countries so far. When this city girl does leave London, expect a few travel features on my ‘You Can Take The Girl Out Of London…’ section.
