Shoreditch walk x Culture Trip App Launch


 The other week I've joined the lovely people from Culturetrip to celebrate the launch of their free travel inspiration app , that makes local culture globally accessible.

The beauty of this app is the fact that it gives you access to unknown places, expert advice, local knowledge, recommendations and by identifying your local location, it manages to serve up travel inspirations for that area! 

 The day was all about exploring Shoreditch  (you might have seen already some of these snaps on my Instagram) and what better way to start the day with a great breakfast, overlooking river thames! 

The Coppa Club has been on my "places to visit" list since last winter, when they've had these cute igloo's on their terrace. I was really blown away by their lovely and spacious terrace, including their wisteria decoration and their beautiful interior inside! 

Their menu offers something for everyone and I just can't resist a good avocado and poached egg toast! 



After we've finished our lovely breakfast (next time I'll definitely want to try these delicious looking waffles and berries) we went on our walk through Shoreditch - which was really exciting for me as I usually tend to stay more in West London! 

Before we embarked on our tour through East London we've met up with Gary, the founder of Alternative London, to guide us on one of  his award winning tours into the vibrant heart of East London. 

They are the first tour company to showcase London's incredible graffiti and street art scene but make sure to check out all the other trips they are offering (pub tours, food tours). 

It was really incredible to see and learn all about the amazing street art and their artist but also to learn more about the historical and cultural events that make the area what it is today!

Here are some snaps of our tour but I would definitely recommend you to see it for yourself! 


 Next to all the amazing street art we've also passed some really beautiful houses, which are really typical for Shoreditch and heaven for anyone who's into pretty doors and French windows! 


This red house is often used as a movie backdrop such as Peaky Blinders and it makes for the perfect outfit backdrop, too! 






After strolling around Shoreditch and taking in all the cool street art, lovely smelling restaurants and cafes our tour guide Gary dropped us off at the recently opened Radio Alice Pizzeria in Hoxton, where've rolled up our sleeves and had the chance to make our own pizza!  


This pizzeria is probably one of the nicest ones I've been to in London! I really love the spacious outside seating (something which is hard to find in London) and the inside is just as charming with it's white marble bar and exposed brick walls! 

First up we've had a little introduction by the pizzaiolo's on how to create the perfect pizza and then it was our turn to kneel our own pizza dough, which is especially great fun for when you are in a group of friends! 


I went for the Prosciutto di Parma pizza with burrata, fior di latte mozzarella and orange oil and as you've might have guessed from the pictures, it was truly delicious! 

Next to the fact that they use organic ingredients and sourdough, I love the fact that each slice has equal measure of toppings! Which is definitely a winner in my books! 

All in all it was a really fun day and thanks to the Culture Trip App I've learned and seen some really amazing new things in my beloved London and can't wait to use the App on my upcoming trip to Italy! 

Here's a quick list of the places mentioned in the post:





This isn't a sponsored post but I just wanted to share with you this lovely day and the cool places I've discovered!
