Highlights from this week in London. Read about everything from architecture to food and delve a little deeper into London's culture.


Issue 58

This week, things turn intellectual with a book review, we talk about the brutal beauty of the Barbican and acquaint ourselves with an innovative coffee shop in Hampstead.

Brutal or Beautiful

The Barbican, otherwise known as the biggest cultural hub in Europe, has got a whole lot of history to its name which you can discover by taking a guided tour of the estate, revealing the secrets that lie beneath the brutalist façade.

Lasting approximately 90 minutes, this tour will help you get to know the Barbican a little bit better and teach you things about it that you would never know otherwise. Uncover the story behind its architectural prowess and understand why The Queen once referred to it as ‘one of the modern wonders of the world.’

Whether you are a local or tourist, design-savvy or not, it is worth while taking some time out to appreciate one of London’s true cultural landmarks.

Good Me Bad Me: The Review

Don’t you just love a good book – settling down in your favourite chair, fully-equipped with a glass/wine mug of tea. That’s exactly what the team at LN decided to do, start a book club. Having been recommended by a few fellow bookworms, Good Me Bad Me was first on our list, and here’s what we thought…

Any book that includes a serial killer, an affair and a backlog of secrets is a winner in my eyes. This story is no doubt a page-turner but there are a few moments which seem a bit pointless in the grand scheme of the story (Saskia’s affair with the yoga teacher for example) but, I will be lenient on this occasion as it is Ali Land’s first book.

All in all it is a rather gripping tale which is no doubt a page turner, but is it the next Girl on the Train? I’m not sure about that one, you will have to be the judge and report back to us with your thoughts.

The Little Phonebox in Hampstead

We all know and love the red telephone box, along with the big red buses, it is one of the iconic images of London. But let’s be honest, when was the last time you phoned in friend in one of those pbone booths? My guess, is not very recently, but with the help of Umar Khalid and Alona Guerra this could all be about to change.

Located in charming Hampstead High Street, Kape Barako is the first of its kind, putting life back into one of city’s classic telephone boxes through selling quality coffee. In addition to velvety smooth cups of joe, the future of the telephone box is looking sweet as Khalid and Guerra are eager to expand their business to sell ice cream in a sister telephone box. What a genius idea?! If every lonely telephone box in London were to sell coffee, ice cream and other treats, it would be a much happier place, don’t you think?
