Top 7 Brunch Spots In London

Brunching should be a new national sport, or maybe it's just a London thing? Gone are the days of celebrating a birthday or graduation over dinner, instead us millennials are opting for the late morning, early afternoon amalgamation of breakfast and lunch - brunch. Brunch isn't eaten at 8am, nor is it eaten at 4pm; it is more of a 11-1pm meal (although I have seen some restaurants with a brunch menu up to 4pm - shame on you).

Short-term traveller - Select routes predominated by walking instead of taking the bus/taxi/train - Visit parks and casually stroll whilst taking in the sights (maybe also plan for a small picnic) - Try to select healthy meal options (most likely be eating out for every meal) and be smart with snacking throughout the day Long-term traveller - Get accustomed to your area of residence and go for short runs in the morning - Partake in free outdoor classes (weather-permitting of course); as an example, many cities have free yoga classes held outdoors - Grab a friend, grab a ball - head to the beach for some volleyball or some swimming - Choose an apartment/...
