There are hundreds of blogs about our fair city, some good, some bad. So, to save you time trawling through the ether, here are a selection our favourite London bloggers…
The Great Wen
Journalist and Londoner at large, The Great Wen, aka Peter Watts is a cerebral blogger, whose historical posts cover everything from the The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in London, to the city’s hidden rivers. If you really want to uncover the secret side of London (and were not talking Dalston’s latest pop up), The Great Wen is your man.
One of London’s most famous bloggers and expert on all things Tube-related, we love Annie Mole’s blog. Until recently, she remained anonymous in an attempt to keep TFL off her back, but Annie’s newfound fame hasn’t stopped her posting irreverent and informative posts about the Underground. And despite the blog’s low-fi look (we’re not sure it’s ever seen a redesign…), it’s our first port of call most mornings.
Dulwich on View
Easily south east London’s best blog – this site is so vast it’s more Lonely Planet than lone blogger. Covering Peckham, East Dulwich, Camberwell, Herne Hill and Denmark Hill, the extensive blog has sections on anything you’ll ever want to do in the area. But, it’s not all exhibitions and foodie markets – this blog actively promotes the local community encouraging them to submit posts and ideas. A must for south-east Londoners.
Obsessed with London
Just like Completely London, blogger Drisk likes his Capital served with sprinkle of the weird and a dollop of the wonderful. So, if it’s the next bonkers east London trend you’re after, you can guarantee this blog will point you in the right direction. Cool without being pretentious, Drisk’s take on the Capital’s art and cultural goings on is tongue-in-cheek, but spot on.
Will Taylor, aka Bright Bazaar, is the writer behind the Daily Express’ Interiors and Styling Blog of the Year 2012. As a self-confessed colour addict living in London, he’s an expert on all things vivid, and with his motto being; ‘because beige is boring’, you can always rely on him to brighten up your life – either with statement piece of furniture, or a pop of colour on London’s streets.
