When the world ends in fire and brimstone, not even the smart architects and design firms of Clerkenwell will be able to build you a way out. Good news: the design-laden region's piled high with some of the city's best food and drink spots, so it's a good place to be if you're still completing this list as the world ends. Ding ding.
1) Buy all the stationery at Present and Correct
Take a break from tapping your keyboard and rekindle your love of stationery. Luckily the tiny and beautiful Present and Correct make this easy peasy. You'll find all the stationery you could ever need, and find yourself inventing excuses to take home everything else. The store also has an excellent Instagram feed.
2) Get a Brill-iant coffee
Head to Brill for coffee, music and bagels. Part music shop, part coffee shop, grab a coffee and soak up some folk sounds.
3) Clerkenwell Kitchen
The super-eco, super-smug café for all your lunch needs.
4) Find the birdhouses
No, we're not giving away the locations.
5) Sit in the sun at Workshop Coffee
Eschew sitting in their gorgeous interior. The Workshop benches outside are nearly as much for posing as for drinking coffee. Grab one of these instead and watch the world buzz past.
6) Try Belgian bangers and mash at The Dovetail
The 100 Belgian beers help, but a visit to the The Dovetail is all about their banging sausage and mash.
7) Pick up local produce in the Q Shop
Next door to the Quality Chop House is its shop counterpart. Pick up local London honey or a properly hearty scotch egg.
8) Dive into the J&A Café
Part café, part bar. This means that once you're in the J&A Café, hidden down a sneaky side alley, you don't ever really need to leave again.
9) Creep around Charles Dickens' house
Not much has changed in Charles Dickens' house since he lived here in 1839. Take the trip back in time for a glimpse of the writer's space. If you time it right, you can get in on a candlelit late-night tour, too.
10) Brunch at Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings
The new venture from Bourne and Hollingsworth is built for the perfect brunch. Airy, green-fingered interiors in one of Clerkenwell's relaxed side streets. Tick.
11) Shop for Scandinavian sprigs
It's hard not to love the Scandinavian flower shop at Flor Unikon. Go on, try.
12) Have a cocktail at Zetter Townhouse
Designed like your weird aunt's house. But tasteful.
13) Try Craft Beer's 37 beers
There are 300-plus bottles in the fridges of Craft Beer Co. Good luck working out what to order.
14) Take home Borough Wine's finest craft brews
The new shop on Exmouth Market has you covered for craft beer, ciders and wines. There are enough trendy graphics on the labels to keep you more than content.
15) Have a long lunch
Visit Kolossi Grill, the most authentic Greek Cypriot restaurant in London (probably).
16) Go hard on dessert
We started the day with yummy brunch at #GrangerAndCo in #Clerkenwell; found out they have just opened a new branch in #Kingscross. Having said that I think I'd rather trying their #Hawaii branch, featured! Photo by @bill.granger #hotelswelove #london #iglondon #honolulu #foodie #instagood #interiordesign #design
Banana fritters. Pistachio pavlova. Strawberries and rosewater cream. Need we say more? Granger and Co has dessert covered.
17) Cover your coffee table
Have a naked coffee table? Shop for visual oddities and strange phenomena at Magma.
18) Have a drink at St John's
With St John's brilliant beers and smart wines, you might find yourself wading into their menu with a sudden bold hankering to try their ox tongue.
19) Get buzzed
No, we're not talking about Fabric. Clerkenwell's home to one of London's most regarded tattoo parlours, The Family Business. But remember, just because the end of the world's coming doesn't mean you need to get YOLO stamped down the side of your arm.
More things to do before the world ends, but in Victoria Park Village.
