Emoji quiz

We've all seen that emoji tube station quiz that drove the internet nuts last week (there's a theory number 12 was a deliberate troll). But did you see our emoji quiz from a few months back? Thirty areas of London in symbols: go! (Our favourite is number 26.)

Good cause of the day

Book yourself on the Making a Difference in Dalston walk on 15 July, led by guide Ray Blackburn from Footprints of London. Ray will explain how people in this part of Hackney have struggled for change — and still do. The 'ticket fee' is a donation to Amnesty International; a minimum of £10 per walker, please.


Don't be a mug...

...drink out of one instead. We've got three Londonist mugs to choose from, including one with our logo on it. Perfect for that mid morning tea break.
