19 Things We’d Rather Do In London Than Go Shopping On Black Friday

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Black Friday is upon us and there are countless reasons why it’s possibly one of the worst days/ideas/inventions/things ever. Surely anything with a name correlating to the Black Death can’t be good and yet it’s still one of the busiest (*diabolical*) days in retail. So we’ve compiled a list of things we’d rather do in London than go shopping this Friday. And yes, riding the Central Line at 6pm, dressed head to toe in thermals with a rucksack full of rocks while announcing your flatulence issues to everyone would be one of them.


1. Spend a Saturday afternoon in M&M World.

2. Spend a Saturday afternoon on Oxford Street.

3. Spend a Saturday afternoon anywhere in Central London.

4. Learn all the tube stops off by heart in alphabetical order.
