London Lamppost was founded in the summer of 2017 by
One of those rare creatures that was born and raised in London, Joss loves the city. But lets face it not everyone does. Whenever Joss asked people why they didn’t like London the reasons usually boiled down to them finding the city a grey and lonely place. Over the years this was true of everyone from his fiance to friends of friends of friends.
The problem was that the London haters were just getting up, commuting to a job they often hated and then commuting straight home again, keeping their heads down all the time. This loneliness was the killer. So unable to do anything about the hatred of their jobs, Joss started introducing them to his friends, places to go and things to do. By being able to build friendships and explore the city more they became London lovers too.
From this realisation and after years writing for other publications, London Lamppost was born.
We are a small but dedicated team of London lovers, each with our own areas of interest. We contribute in our spare time; writing on topics and experiences we have enjoyed and think you might too. Sure some things won’t appeal to you, but we’re willing to bet others will.
It’s easy to feel lost in London. It’s like a sea of experiences and opportunities and people, and it’s always shifting.
Take a walk around London and you’ll see what we mean. Cranes and construction works, pop up bars and closing down clearances – it’s all in motion, all up for grabs. As you walk through it, the city grows and changes around you.
It’s why it’s so hard to feel truly at home here. The ground moves under your feet.
So change your perspective. Let’s
enjoy walking through London life. We’ll bring you all the best ideas and advice to build your life here. Everything from food and drink, to London culture and lifestyle. How to spend your time and where to spend your money. Don’t worry about the end goal. Just enjoy the walk.
That’s what we’re here for. Let us be your support and illumination.
