A wide range of improvements to London’s streets, junctions and public spaces are underway with more than 1,500 Legible London signs across the Capital to help people find their way. TfL has also launched a new version of the Tube map, which shows how many steps it takes to walk between stations in zones 1 and 2.

    Final stage of Tour of Britain in London

    Olympic and Tour de France legends Mark Cavendish and Sir Bradley Wiggins will star in the Tour of Britain finale this Sunday in central London. This will be the fourth year in a row that the Capital has been the final stage for the iconic finish to eight days of racing, creating inspirational scenes and atmosphere to encourage people onto two wheels and continuing to help make London a byword for cycling. Research conducted for Transport for London (TfL) suggests that last year’s race inspired tens of thousands to cycle more often.

    The British riders will be joined in the Tour of Britain London stage, supported by TfL, through Westminster by German sprinter Andre Greipel and Australia’s former world hour record holder Rohan Dennis. The race will start and finish on Regent Street St James’s (Lower Regent Street) after sixteen laps around Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Strand, Aldwych and Whitehall.

    TfL is advising road users to allow more time for journeys and to consider alternative routes on Sunday 11 September due to road closures for the event. The closures will also mean roads near the race will be busier than usual and some central London bus routes will be diverted or terminate early.

    The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: “It will be wonderful to see some of the world’s best cyclists back in London, and I hope the sight of these great sporting figures competing in the capital will encourage even more Londoners to take to two wheels. It’s good for our health, helps tackle our toxic air pollution and eases congestion. That’s exactly why I’m working hard to make London safer and easier for all to cycle.”

    Ben Plowden, Director of Surface Strategy and Planning at TfL, said: “It is fantastic to be able to welcome back the Tour of Britain and the world-class cyclists it brings to London. The Tour will give everyone an opportunity to finish off a fantastic cycling summer – from a record GB medal haul in the Rio velodrome to the opening of segregated Cycle Superhighways across London. There will need to be road closures in central London to hold this elite event, and drivers and bus users are advised to avoid these areas to ensure their journeys are not affected.”

    Mick Bennett, Tour of Britain Race Director, said: “The London Stage presented by TfL will be a great finale to this year’s Tour of Britain, and a fantastic chance for fans to come out and see the world’s top riders, including of course our very own Olympic medallists Sir Bradley Wiggins, Owain Doull and Mark Cavendish. We look forward to another fast and exciting stage in front of London’s most famous landmarks, showing what a great place to cycle this wonderful city is.”

    Advance warning signs are in place on the race route to advise road users of the closures required to ensure the safety of competitors and spectators, and TfL will be providing live information through the @tfltrafficnews. Twitter feed and on the TfL website to help drivers plan their journey – tfl.gov.uk/trafficnews.  Bus customers can follow the @tflbusalerts Twitter feed for live information. A small number of Santander Cycles docking stations near the event route will be suspended from 20:00 on Saturday until 08:00 on Monday.

    New app Knomi helps London shoppers seek out high-end boutiques

    Fashion enthusiasts in London can now find the best boutiques the capital has to offer with new app Knomi. While London has long been a top shopping destination, finding the best local brands and boutiques was never easy. Knomi connects visitors and locals alike with brands and hidden gem boutiques that may otherwise have gone undiscovered.

    The app helps fashion conscious shoppers find products based on their style preferences and location, allowing them to snap up their favourite designs and luxury items. Discrete and personalised push notifications give helpful shopping tips to users on the go.

     

    Knomi

     

    Knomi offers visitors and residents in London an alternative to the crowds in Harrods and on Oxford Street by leading them to undiscovered and independent boutiques. The app has already partnered with 30 boutiques in London, including British handbag designer Anya Hindmarch, iconic outerwear retailer Belstaff and avant garde multi-brand Wolf & Badger. It is now building partnerships with boutiques in Madrid, Paris, New York and Helsinki.

    Viviam Negri de Almeida, Content Editor of Knomi, said, “While London has a lot to offer visitors, shopping is often on the top of the list for international tourists. While they’ll know the big destinations like Bond Street, Liberty or Harrods, they’re missing out on experiencing luxury boutiques that offer a unique experience and a stunning range of collections . Knomi connects shoppers with designers they’ll fall in love with as they explore London.”

     

    Knomi2

     

    While online sales have transformed the overall retail market, physical sales still dominate the luxury goods market, with only 7% of sales occurring online. Instead, luxury shoppers prefer to touch and feel a product before buying it but the majority still research online before making a purchasing decision. Knomi aims to bridge this gap by allowing users to source and research luxury products online and save their favourite finds before pinpointing local boutiques and showrooms that consumers can visit.

    The personal luxury goods market is worth €250 billion every year and more than a quarter of this is concentrated in the major fashion cities of London, New York, Paris and Tokyo. Knomi uses beacon technology to lead customers with purchase intent into boutiques when they are visiting these fashion capitals.

    Since launching in March 2016 the Knomi app has been downloaded on average more than 560 times every week and the company is successfully partnering with five to six luxury stores every month. The Knomi app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store now.

    The Secret To Gaining Entry Into London’s Best Clubs

    How to Become a VIP

    London’s clubs are difficult to get into if you turn up on the night – but you can guarantee entry by booking ahead.

    London is famed all over the world for its nightlife, and you’ll see pictures of celebrities leaving the capital’s clubs in the gossip pages of newspapers all over the world. It’s because of their superstar reputation that clubs in the city are becoming increasingly harder to make your way into – no matter how you try to bribe the bouncers. To put it simply, if your name’s not down you’re not coming in! So how can you ensure you get into the club of your choice?

    Times are Changing

    The air of exclusivity surrounding London’s club scene is down to a few different factors. Firstly, there are far fewer clubs in the city than there were a decade ago, yet more and more revellers are hitting them on a night out. So naturally, some of those clubs have had to be very selective about who they let in. This has led to lots of competition between the top nightclubs in the capital, each of whom want to be known as the hottest place in town.

    London’s superstar reputation also plays a part. With the rich and famous putting these clubs on the map, they obviously want to build on that good reputation. That means only admitting the right kind of crowd – and many clubs have a strict dress code. This as well as only admitting pre-booked guests means that getting into the best clubs in town can be a tricky process.

    The Hottest Clubs in Town

    So what are the most exclusive clubs in London at the moment? With so many new venues opening, it can be difficult to keep track of which ones are the best.

    First up is Tape, which has been described as ‘game-changing’ by those in the industry. To see what all the fuss is about, secure yourself a Tape table booking.

    Next on your list should be Bonbonniere, a favourite of supermodel Jourdan Dunn and rapper Tinie Tempah. This club has only been open for 18 months, but has established itself as one of the best in the city. Planning ahead and getting a Bonbonniere table booking will guarantee you entry into the club.

    Last but not least is Drama, the successor to the famous Whisky Mist Club. To say it had big boots to fill is putting it mildly, but it’s more than lived up to expectations with its unique atmosphere and eclectic music selection. A Drama table booking means that you’ll be able to enjoy all that the club has to offer without queuing for entry and being turned away at the door.

    A Bit of Forward Planning and You’re All Set

    Once you’ve got your name on the guest list or booked a table, it’s time to plan your epic night out in the capital. Whether you’re staying at one club or sampling a few, planning ahead means that you’re guaranteed entry and all the perks of being a VIP guest. You’ll need to dress to impress too of course – you’ll be rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous after all. So wherever you’re planning to go, make your night out run smoothly by booking ahead. You’ll thank yourself for it later on!

  • London based Pod release summer menu with adventurous theme

    Pod is used to standing out from the crowd and its exiting new summer menu additions, inspired by the flavours and tastes from around the world, will again thrill customers.

    The sun is shining, the temperature is starting to rise and the summer months stretch in front of us – the perfect time for London’s most innovative healthy food-to-go group pod to reveal its summer specials.

    With 22 shops in London and counting, pod continue to blossom in the capital thanks to their commitment to seasonal menus, innovative recipes and dedication to on-site food preparation since 2005.

    pod’s summer adventure will take its customers around the globe in a culinary tour that is filled with fresh food, completely new creations and taste sensations from its ever imaginative development team.

    So what’s new on the pod summer menu?

    How about a foodie favourite breakfast of avocado and feta on toast with a fresh chilli kick? Or perhaps a Summer Glow Mango porridge to fuel up the Caribbean way?

    As a bit of healthy fun, they have bought a (non-alcoholic) Pina Colada to their blended-to-order Blitz range. Handmade with fresh pineapple, spinach, coconut, spinach and orange, there’s no need for added sugar.

    pods’ power ingredients are scattered through their healthy snacks with a Matcha yoghurt made with quinoa and pistachio and a refreshing Strawberry yoghurt topped with micro basil.

    The new Mediterranean tomato, nut-free pesto and mozzarella salad hero’s healthy fats with a grassy olive oil dressing. Served with or without chicken.

    Lunchtimes are always an adventure at pod, so its Balinese chicken salad or wrap ticks more than a few boxes. Crying out Indonesia, they’re made with chicken, Balinese dressing, mayo, coconut, coriander, peas, beetroot, seeds and cabbage – fragrant, and both sweet and spicy. It’s superfood heaven with a little bit of everything combined – and both less than 400 calories.

     

    pod's new Summer Glow Mango Porridge

     

    Famous for their exotic hot pods, the new Indian Pasanda, with or without chicken is the perfectly spiced hero of the summer menu; a dish packed with authentic India, without sending you packing!

    One of its new baguettes might tempt you with the Vietnamese/French fusion that is the Banh mi pulled pork – or try the mozzarella, pesto, avocado and sun-blush tomato version – both served on superseed baguettes and packed with goodness and flavour.

    pod’s chefs source only the finest ingredients for their in house developed recipes, taking their bi-weekly chef special’s to an even higher level – check the Brazilian Xin Xim chicken stew, Piccalilli pulled pork and the Sri Lankan chicken, each served on three grain rice and topped with fresh herbs and served with a delicious side salad. Refreshing yet complex in flavour – you’ll know what pod mean when you are finishing the last mouthful of these taste adventures.

    And don’t get pod started on the first up chef special Cape Malay chicken curry! The South African gluten-free curry combines sweet and savoury flavours using apricots and a tangy tomato sauce – delicious.

    This is just a taste of pod’s new menu and with so many new additions to an already exhaustive list, why not try a different lunch every day as you circumnavigate the globe on a tastebud adventure that keeps energetic Londoners coming back for more.

    pod only make tasty, intelligent food that reflect the people who eat it – ambitious, health conscious and smart.
