Unusual Things To Do in London

Yearning for a change from the boozy birthdays, wild warehouse parties and rooftop romps?

Thankfully, London's has the answer, offering infinite activities for you to try. Have a gander at our recommendations for the most unusual events in London.

Last time we checked, it’s pretty unusual to find yourself standing on the tables, arms around a complete stranger, screaming out the words to Livin’ On A Prayer at the end of a quiz night. This is the norm at Sounds Familiar. A raucous disco in the form of a pub quiz, these guys part with the boring trivia and instead focus on sweet music. Terrible singing and shoddy dance moves are welcome.

Flight Club Bloomsbury

752 user reviews

If you're going to talk about Flight Club, do it really loudly, all the time to everyone you meet because it's great and we're spreading the world across the city. Unfortunately sans Brad (we know), this place is all about social gaming like never before. Ping pong is well yesterday now. This is the dawn of DARTS. We're welcoming a new age of drinking and darting ... come and join us in either Bloomsbury or Shoreditch
