They say before you criticise others, try walking a mile in their shoes.
So rather than ranting on about our terrible transport system, depressing grey buildings and unpalatable British food, why not follow in London’s footsteps.
Fox and Squirrel — a team of stylists, art experts, foodies and city enthusiasts — makes it easy with custom strolls that highlight local treasures. First, fill out a form that collects information such as your favourite artists and an item of clothing you couldn’t live without, and the knowledgeable crew will take it from there.
Try a half-day vintage walk to uncover some of the city’s best dealers or an archi-food saunter, led by architecture experts who will expose you (and your belly) to beautiful buildings and gastronomic treats. Tour cutting-edge independent retailers and bargain-savvy shops during a stylist-curated fashion jaunt.
Sound like your thing? Run, don’t walk.
