London isn’t exactly short on great things to do. Where else can you hang out in a ball pit bar, go for a ride on a gin bus, eat your weight in street food and jump around in a trampoline park? (Though possibly not in that order). Still, that doesn’t stop us being jealous of these awesome initiatives in other cities. The saving grace - British Airways flies to destinations all across Europe. At ba.com/citybreaks you’ll find everything you need to plan your perfect escape and experience some of these super cool things.
A surf office
If you usually break up your working day with a swift walk around the block, prepare to have your mind blown. A clever company in Lisbon has created the ultimate working environment: a surf office. Yep, you read that right. The office, which comes with its own accommodation, speedy wifi and unlimited coffee, can be hired out by teams for company retreats. It’s conveniently located near the beach, so that when you get bored of working you can swap spreadsheets for surfing.
A punk museum
Forget anarchy in the UK, the punk movement has been given its own museum in Iceland. But don’t expect a load of dusty old archives. The Icelandic Punk Museum in Reykjavik is packed with posters, videos, photos and records – and you can even rock out on a musical instrument or two. Oh, and to add to its anarchic credentials, it’s located in a former public toilet. Now that’s rock n roll.
An ice cream sandwich bar
The lucky folks over in Prague have got a seriously sweet deal thanks to the arrival of an ice cream sandwich bar. You can choose from eight different cookie flavours, 12 types of ice cream and eight types of toppings, which means there are more than 6,000 flavour combinations – and if that’s not worth screaming about, we don’t know what is.
