What we're about
You should Give it a Go because:
- you want to be a tourist in your own town! From the Ceremony of the Keys to the British Museum of Food, we visit parts of London that get overlooked by the crowds.
We have the most eclectic mix of events on Meetup! From visiting a Clown Church Ceremony to hopping into a Finnish sauna in a Rotherhithe basement via 3D Printing and Urban Golf and more.
- We are a small Meetup (by London standards) so you won't get lost in a crowd at one of our events.
- We do the research into the quirky corners of London so you don't have to.
Membership is £3 (to cover the Meetup costs), or you can come along and pay £1 per event - that way you can see if we're the group for you or not!
