As you might suspect we both own a fair amount of wool. Moths become a horrendous threat when most of your wardrobe is considered a tasty treat. We’ve had holes, but these people fix them and make them look pristine again.
Originally a bank, and then a pawnbrokers, Time For Tea is a Shoreditch treasure. If you are lucky enough to happen by when it’s open, Johnny Vercoutre is an amazing host and it’s like stepping back in time. We love it when friends host dinners there. We think it is perfect for intimate gatherings.
Rob Sargent knows bikes. This quote from his website tells you everything you need to know: “There is scarcely anything in this world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and those that study price alone are this man’s lawful prey. We deal only in steel”. How can you not love that?
The Lea Valley Towpath to Cheshunt
This is our favourite chilled out ride. It is amazing, completely underutilized, our perfect ‘get away from London route’ and it’s mostly a nature reserve. We like the 11kms from Homerton’s Marsh Hill to Hooks Marsh and Cheshunt Lake. There are benches along the way if you need a break, toilets at Stonebridge and picnic tables at the Lock at Ponders End.
