Welcome to London! Your Guide to London.
The All About London Team has lived and worked in London for many years. We have detailed knowledge of London, feel free to ask us about Places to visit, places to stay and things to do. London Tours, Attractions, Hotels, Accommodation, Events, Theatre, Shows and Places to eat.
The good thing about this staycation lark is that we aren’t bound by baggage restrictions. In other words, you can bring kilo upon kilo of wonderful things from Fortnum's on holiday with you and there'll be nobody telling you no.
With 25% off selected wines and spirits, it's the perfect opportunity to stock up on our collection of superb bottles sourced from across the world. And while you're at it, something delicious to eat with them too.
Here's something else to tipple your fancy for the summer Bank Holiday: mix and match any 12 bottles to enjoy an extra 10% off on top. With delivery in time for the weekend, we feel a few toasts coming on..
Woolf Women is a true account of Jenny and her 4 friends who accept a challenge to go to Sumela – an ancient monastery built in AD386. It clings precariously to a vertical rock face with a terrifying sheer drop of 1,280 metres and is located deep in the Pontic mountains of Turkey.
Jenny has been struggling to get over the unexpected and sudden loss of her father. Her friends are worried about her welfare and state of mind. Her depression has already led to her losing her job and as a result she gives up her home to go live in her van and skate professionally full-time. In order to seek solace and distraction, she plans and dreams of an adventurous skateboard expedition with her friends.
Upon meeting Marchella, the expedition becomes a reality and the girls make it their mission to go to Sumela, with the hope that Jenny finds closure and they can become the first ever Downhill Skateboarders to skate from Sumela. However, shortly before their departure, Jenny meets with another major unexpected calamity.
Woolf Women is a film about personal courage, friendship, adventure and duct tape. It is a testimony to the words – belief and determination. Young, free spirited and athletic - the girls cruise by road for over 5,500 kms each way into uncharted waters to reach Sumela.
Featuring exciting skate scenes, interesting conversation and stunning scenery, Woolf Women is a modern-day Odyssey like no other.

These buses will have clear signs to differentiate them from regular bus services and information will be posted at bus stops and online.

While, it’s already closed to general traffic and buses and has been for a while, it will now be closed to people walking and cycling.
Engineers are on site assessing the damage, which may have been caused by the recent extreme weather, and we continue to work with Hammersmith & Fulham and Richmond upon Thames councils on this project. Find out more.
