Cool Spots To Explore In London Part I

All packed and unsure what to do when you arrive in London without going over your daily limit for the entire no worries. I have a few recommendations you can enjoy and explore for free while in London.

God’s Own Junkyard

Take me back to the 80’s time to light up life God’s Own Junkyard is a unique psychedelic paradise of neon lights and vintage signs. Located at Unit 12, Ravenswood Industrial Estate, Shernhall Street, Walthamstow, E17 9HQ closest train station is Walthamstow Central. God’s Own Junkyard will reopen on April 16,2023 the hours vary so check the website for details. The signs are available for sale, but entry and browsing in excitement is free.

No need to make dining plans after, Gods Own Junkyard has their own on-site café that has outdoor table services called The Rolling Scones. The cafe will also open for service come April 16. For adult beverages Wild Card Brewery is an on-site bar just across the yard and there’s a gin bar called “Mother’s Ruin” next door.

Visit Platform 9 3/4

Every Harry Potter fan knows the most famous train platform in the world: 9 and 3/4! Platform 9 3/4 is tucked away in the back of King’s Cross Station; the barrier between platforms 9 and 10 holds the secret entrance to the magical platform that can only be accessed by running straight ahead – directly into the barrier.

For directions please use one of the following:

All witches and wizards will enter the world of Hogwarts as soon as they step through the barrier onto Platform 9 and 3/4. This the same platform is where Harry met the Weasley gang.

Leake Street Graffiti Tunnel

I love art, but I am obsessed with Graffiti Art! Leake Street is where graffiti art is permitted, and actively encouraged, on the walls and ceilings of the tunnel. The beauty of self-expression through a visual display makes me extremely happy.

If you are thinking about lunch or dinner, if you capture pics of some amazing art, then stop by Draughts, a restaurant/bar that has over 1000 board games to play. The food menu consists of giant nachos, pulled pork and cheeseburgers, Korean chicken, buffalo cauliflower, vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free.

On tap you can sip draught beers, IPA and cider, a wine list combining the old and new world and ever-changing cocktails from around the globe.

Where to find Leake Street Tunnel? Tucked away underneath Waterloo train station by way to access it is from Lower Marsh Street.
