Things to do May Bank Holiday in London

By Lori on May 01 2015

London Coffee Festival

But first, coffee.

Coffee culture has become a way of life for London. With every corner and street home to a favourable chain or gourmet coffee shop. For most commuters, it's the first visit of their day so there's no surprise that London has created it's own Coffee Festival.

London Coffee Festival is the UK’s largest coffee and artisan food event, a celebration of London's vibrant coffee culture featuring gourmet coffee, speciality tea, artisan food, demonstrations from world-class baristas, live music and a comprehensive ‘lab’ seminar programme that will educate even the keenest of coffee lovers.

Malaysia Kitchen Spring Market

This weekend, head to the Southbank tp experience a touch of Malaysian taste and culture. Sample beef rendang, chicken satay and spicy laksa from around 15 Malaysian restaurants.

The Alice Look

Alice in Wonderland fan? Then this is the exhibition for you! To mark the 150th anniversary of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, take a walk through Wonderland (Victoria and Albert Museum) to follow Alice's evolution from follower-of-fashion to trend-setter through a selection of garments, photographs, rare editions and a brand new commission by Roksanda pattern-cutter Josie Smith.

Flamingo Pier

Nothing says Bank Holiday like soaking up the rays with a drink in your hand. What if we added a tropical theme and a floating Counter Café pontoon and canal boat on Hackney Wick.

One of the finest and most fun pop-up parties of last summer, Flamingo Pier is back for summer 2015, which is great news for anyone who likes their pop-ups with a big dose of tropical indulgence.
