About Memoirs Of A Metro Girl

© Memoirs Of A Metro Girl 2012Welcome to Memoirs Of A Metro Girl, a 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… even when I retire many decades from now.

I started this blog in spring 2012 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, pop-ups and gigs, as well as include a historical backdrop when possible. I hope both Londoners and visitors to the capital enjoy my writing.

Every month, 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.

As much as I adore London, I also love leaving it! I am an avid traveller and have visited over 45 countries so far, with the (rather overly ambitious!) aim to visit 100 countries before I die. When this city girl does leave London, expect a few travel features on my ‘You Can Take The Girl Out Of London…’ section.

As this blog is still growing, if you like what you see, please tell your friends and share posts on your social networking pages.

Happy exploring!
