This Week In London’s History
Random London Quote Of The Week
I came to London. It had become the centre of my world and I had worked hard to come to it. And I was lost. London was not the centre of my world. I had been misled; but there was nowhere else to go. It was a good place for getting lost in, a city no one ever knew, a city explored from the neutral heart outwards until, after years, it defined itself into a jumble of clearings separated by stretches of the unknown, through which the narrowest of paths had been cut.
V.S. Naipaul, An Area of Darkness
One Thing You Must Do In London This Week
If you’re lucky (or unlucky) enough to not be working on Tuesday afternoon, you could do worse than popping into the Museum of London Docklands to check out their free events celebrating Bengali New Year. Poetic storytelling, ‘painting’ with rice flour, Bangla folk dance workshops and music are amongst the family-friendly activities on offer - see the museum’s website for more details.
