Thanks to the latest technology, an abandoned air raid shelter 33 metres below Clapham High Street is being used to grow ‘micro herbs’ including fennel, garlic chives and pea shoots. The sustainable salad crop will go on sale in M&S stores for the first time this week.

It’s taken me so long to write this post because it doesn’t really fit with the rest of this site. The Shangri La London certainly isn’t budget-friendly, it’s not eco-friendly and it isn’t somewhere you might stay if you were looking to reconnect with nature.

#WastEDLondon is a temporary pop up restaurant currently wowing diners on the rooftop of Selfridges in London – and it’s a pop-up like no other.

It’s the most talked-about pop-up experience in London this year so far – and last week, I ate my way through the tasting menu.
