The Anti-Lent Guide

If you’ve always treated Lent as a second attempt at your New Year’s resolutions (including your yearly effort to stop consuming your weekly allowance of chocolate-based calories during one Netflix binge) then it might be time to give up the good fight. In a world with Trump, Brexit and no Bowie, maybe 2017 should be the year of being kind to ourselves. And what better …

Summer Inspiralisation

When it comes to healthy eating, dealing with conflicting advice, expensive food and uninspired meal plans can take our well-intentioned attempts in a sharp downwards spiral, often meaning the few pounds we lose come out of our pocket rather than anywhere else. We’re told to cut carbs, banish beloved bread and part from pasta. Coming home from work to a sorry salad and stick of …

At Wowcher (often guilty of this ourselves!), we’re always looking for exciting new experiences and undiscovered spots …

I’ve been to my fair share of food establishments. Like most people who live in London, I love trying new places and discovering hidden gems across the city, but despite these culinary crusades, I have never munched my way through sandwiches and cake at a place with ‘crypt’ in its name.
