Bringing Agatha Christie vibes to East London, The Murder Express is part supper club, part immersive theatre experience. Jump aboard their train carriage for a swish, 1920s-inspired setting, with all sorts of characters telling their tale of deceit, trickery, and - yep, you guessed it - murder...

Set in a secret private members club - that looks like an abandoned pub from the outside - Gin-House Burlesque is hot enough to warm even the chilliest of autumnal nights. Join London's sauciest burlesque performers for snake charming, fire breathing and scintillating strip tease in one of East London's coolest locations.

If Aperol Spritz be the drink of the summer then it's time to switch to something a bit heartier. Our suggestion? Beer, beer and more beer, and where better to sample plenty of the hoppy stuff than at one of London's breweries. Along with all the craft brews, these spots will get you behind the scenes to show you what goes down in making your favourite drink.

Temperatures may be dropping, but things are heating up at The Prince of Wales in Brixton this autumn. Head here for a series of unmissable events on their heated rooftop, including popular R&B brunches, DJ sets for world-famous performers and live jazz music nights.
