London is, lest we forget, one of the greenest capitals in Europe. Those who seek the pleasures of the natural world need not go far. Seasonal magazine Lost In London offers all the inspiration you need to explore the city’s varied environment.
The Spring issue has just launched. Between its primary covers you’ll find articles on ancient woodlands in Highgate; where to spot bluebells, forage for unusual tea ingredients, grow your own veg, exercise outdoors or fly a kite; how to identify birdsong, and much more besides. There’s even a pull-out guide to the fish of the Thames. All beautifully put together.
You can get hold of a copy for a tenner at several outlets across London. Alternatively, pop along to St Mary’s Community Centre, Stoke Newington between 2.30pm and 4.30pm this Saturday for a launch party, cake eating and (non-kinky) clothes swap.
