Quirky Pop-Ups In London

If there's one thing we can say for the people of this city, it's that there is no limit to their imagination, demonstrated by the sheer number of wacky, weird and downright quirky pop-ups in London. From an alcoholic tea party inspired by Pat Butcher through to a sport that King VIII used to play, these are just a few of our favourite unusual pop-ups in London.

Ever drank in prison before? Because now’s your time. It’s all getting a bit Orange is the New Black up in here, where it’s up to you to smuggle in your favourite bottle of alcohol, past the warden using bribery and special techniques, so that one of the inmates can mix you up some spectacular cocktails. Just make sure you aren’t caught.
