What, we hear you cry, is a Headphone Holiday? It's a chance for you to lock deep into your own groove at a series of daytime alfresco parties thrown by ace Shoreditch pub the Queen of Hoxton. And yes, it's a headphone/silent disco affair, where into your grateful ears will be channeled the sweet sounds of house, disco, funk and hip hop from some top-class DJ names, all whilst gazing out across the QoH's panoramic rooftop. Noise complaints? Not here, mate, just daytime revellers grooving out in their own headphone-wrapped universes.
Another stunning Chapel line-up of stand-ups showcasing their God-given talents. British comedy ;egend and 'It's Kevin' star Kevin Eldon tops the bill.
This summer, for the first time, plebs will be permitted to take tea in the Palace of Westminster. The constitutional cuppas are an add-on to the excellent 75-minute tours offered by Blue Badge guides on Saturdays throughout the year and on weekdays during the summer opening period when Parliament is in recess. The tours start by following the route taken by the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament and include a peek at both the Commons and Lords chambers as well as the Central Lobby, Members' Lobby and the 900-year-old Westminster Hall.
This much-loved club under the arches at Charing Cross celebrates another successful year with a big birthday gig headlined by Canadian comic Tom Stade.

It’s everything a cool burger bar should be, with hip (but super-friendly) staff, funky furnishings (scuffed-up school desks, industrial hanging lamps) and a laid-back, reggae-infused vibe. Most importantly, it has burgers that are insanely delicious.
