Matt's experiences

Group of people taking in the view over London.

The Dare Skywalk, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London

"You can take it to the edge and scale the height of the stadium where you'll enjoy breath-taking views of the capital and step out onto a glass walkway 46.8m above the pitch."

Man pouring ingredients at Cardiff Distillery.

Cardiff Distillery, Cardiff, Wales

“I love the occasional G&T, but never quite realised how much of an art gin making is. First you select your botanicals, then distil your spirit in a copper still and finally add tonic and taste your creation. That last part’s the best bit.”

People doing YOGA in the British Airways i360 in Brighton.

i360 Yoga in the Sky, Brighton

"Unwind your body and rest your mind, as you practice yoga in the sky in Brighton's i360, surrounded by views of the South Downs and the beautiful Sussex coastline"

Aisha & Oreoluwa’s experiences

Fargo Village, Coventry, Britain

“Fargo Village is a tucked away creative quarter in Coventry that showcases loads of the local talent in this amazing city. It was a huge deal when I lived there, because it provided a much-needed space for young creatives to come together.”

Tate Modern Lates, Bankside, London

“Britain’s most iconic gallery is even better to explore after hours, when the space is programmed with workshops, DJ sets, performances and screenings. It’s always a great mix of people and an amazing vibe.”

Group of skaters skating around London.

Watch My Wheels, London

“Come join a group of roller-skaters who love to take on the sights of London on 4 wheels.”

Jonathan's experiences

Crowd at Printworks, London.

Printworks, Rotherhithe, South London

"Come party in one of the world's most iconic clubs, located in the former Harmsworth Quay printing plant."

Couple at diner table enjoying vegan food.

Rudy’s vegan diner, Camden, London

“It looks like a classic British butcher’s counter, but absolutely everything is plant-based. The adjoining diner serves mouthwatering comfort food, from meat-free burgers to giant seitan hot dogs.”

Bartender serving drink.

The Vault at Milroys, Soho, London

“At first glance, it looks like a classic British bar, but hidden behind a bookcase you find a refined environment and discover classic British cocktails.”

Lynsey's experiences

People tasting wine around wine barrels.

Blackbook Winery, Battersea, London

“A family owned winery, located under a railway arch in the heart of London, focused on making sustainable quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.”

Old Freight depot featuring restaurants and shows.

Escape to Freight Island, Manchester, England

“An incredibly varied food, drink and event space in an old freight depot. Conceived by a collective of Manchester music and restaurant veterans, Escape To Freight Island hosts everything from buzzy pop-ups to fierce drag shows.”

Gannett, Glasgow, Scotland

“The Gannet, in Glasgow’s Finnieston area, blends traditional and contemporary technique, creating a distinctly modern Scottish fine dining experience. Their seasonal menu is inspired by a network of local producers, foragers and farmers.”
