This is all about London. The sights. What to wear. Things to do. The shows. Oh, and we also have a pretty important announcement about an event we’ll be hosting in London. So be sure to join the fun!

1. What to pack? Styles? What’s the weather like? You know, important things. If you want to share your favorite street styles please do, let the group know what to expect

2. What to do on bloggers’ days off? We have a busy agenda filled with architecture tours, all the shows and events around the city, but there is so much more. Feel free to share what you think they should add to their agenda. Little shops? Great foodie places? Sightseeing? Have links ready to share or add comments to this blog posts.

3. The shows. There are so many. We will be visiting 100% Design, Design Junction, Tent London and Decorex so please share your favorites. Let us know about events at the shows, tweetups, talks etc that you would like us to join you in or share with our readers.

4. Around town. Any other design related events that BlogTour London shouldn’t miss? Tell us all about it.

5. Folks that are NOT in London. What would you like to see the most? Which designer or artisan? Which show?

    don’t rely on our public transport, it’s good but best way to see London is on foot! #blogtourLDN

    @PJohnsonInt yes I discovered Google Keep and One Note that allows you to take pics AND notes #BlogtourLDN

    RT @steamtherapy Cocktail attire for @Modenus re-launch. Umbrella. Comfy shoes. Are we missing anything? #BlogTourLDN #blogtourldn

    @Modenus Nowhere as cultural or colourful as Camden Market, maybe a little offbeat but well worth a visit #blogtourLDN

    More tips for London from Modenus:

    1. Tate Modern – it’s a short walk from Citizen M and a must see. If there’s time head up to the cafe and enjoy the view of St. Paul’s

    2. National Portrait Gallery – Fabulous exhibits and again, one of the best views of London rooftops from the cafe. Stop by for afternoon tea.

    3. Victoria & Albert and National History museum, both as much for their exquisite exhibits as for their architecture

    4. British museum – we could spend all day here and have done, amazing architecture

    5. Just walk – London is a town to walk in. Walk from the V&A museum to Victoria Station cross through Knightsbridge and walk along Green park

    6. Regents Park and the Canals

    7. Portobello Road on Saturday morning

    8. Tom Dixon’s Portobello Dock

    9. Brick Lane on Saturday morning before we meet at Tent London.
