London from the inside Monday 12th - Sunday 18th June 2017
Father’s Day has been celebrated in America for over 100 years and in Britain since 1966. It’s on Sunday 18th June this year and if you’re stuck for something to get, how about a day out in London, meaning you get to spend quality time with your dad and make some more memories as part of your gift. It’s a foodie special blog this week so we’re covering the best of burgers in London (surely a fave meal for most dads) and there’s a few ideas for things to do if you’re in the city on Father’s Day.
