They’re not hugely Christmassy, but the Alice in Winterland festival lanterns are stunning – see them in Southwark Park until January 5th!

Although Alex spent most of his life in Somerset and Durham, London is (almost) in his name, so he relocated to the capital and fell in love with it. Now going by the moniker 'Secret Landon', you'll find him eating all of London's street food, lost in a bookshop, or shouting at his beloved ice hockey team, the Minnesota Wild.
