An experience like no other, gives you the chance to dine inside a decommissioned London Underground carriage from 1967. The tube still maintains all its original features, including the windows and signs, and it's now located in Walthamstow. You'll feast on a six-course tasting menu of Colombian fare while you're here, created by head chef Beatriz Maldonado Carreño - who has worked in some of Colombia and London's top restaurants.

Karen's Diner

Karen's Diner is an internet sensation - the only restaurant where the staff are instructed to be rude. Prepare to be roasted and served with some serious attitude - all in good fun, of course - while you enjoy the delicious burgers, milkshakes and more. 

Sherlock: The Official Live Game

If you're looking for something a little different, check out Sherlock: The Official Live Game. Housed in a dedicated secret bar called the Mind Palace, these events will have you cracking cases while sipping cocktails and making your way through a tasty afternoon tea. 

The Lust Supper

Ignite your tastebuds and desires with The Lust Super, a multi-sensory dining experience that takes place in a secret Hoxton loft. The intimate dinner party invites couples from £265 (for two) to delight in a three-course luxury aphrodisiac menu, two and a half hours of free-flowing prosecco and sensual massages to name a few of the goings on at this sexy event. 

The Great Murder Mystery

@ The Lost Estate on Various dates from Thursday 25th July 2024

From £169.50 each, feast on three courses of Victorian fine dining, meticulously paired with wines as Sherlock Holmes' darkest case: The Hound of the Baskervilles unravels around you. The Great Murder Mystery is a spectacular immersing theatre event not to be missed, bringing some of London's top chefs, mixologists and performers together in the heart of West London.

The Wands & Wizard Exploratorium

Found inside a beautiful, five-storey townhouse in Soho, The Wands & Wizard Exploratorium gives you the chance to craft your very own magical working wand in their mystical workshop, or try your hand at potion making instead. They're also offering afternoon tea for £47.99 per person, where you'll enjoy an hour and 45 minutes of interactive fun while nibbling on themed sandwiches, scones and sweet treats - with two interactive teas to top it all off.
