What are you doing in London the Saturday before the big game?
Want a few things to do to help you get the full London experience?
Well, we have our top 5 list of things for you to do this Saturday so that you can have a blast in the capital.
The forecast for Saturday is cloudy and 16c (62f)-so you still can enjoy strolling and hanging outside.
1. Rugby World Cup
Lucky you! You came during the Rugby World Cup, and every local will be glad to tell you the differences between the sports, with only a slight tilt towards rugby.
England face Argentina at 9am GMT-so loads of punters will head to the pub early to start drinking. Australia play Uruguay at 6:30am, followed by Japan vs Samoa at 11:30am.
Rugby watching is fun, the crowds are really into it, and the Bloody Mary’s are in full effect!
Most sports bars will show it, but try to find a nice local pub around the corner.
Saturdays and Sundays are market days in London, so get out and experience as many as you can.
Whether you’re looking for some knick-knacks, souvenirs, or some local food and fresh produce and baked goods.
East London has Broadway Market and Netil market is only around the corner from it.
Spitalifields market located near Liverpool Street Station is also very cool, and is mostly covered so you can stay dry in your supply. Venture out to neighbouring Brick Lane for yummy Indian food as well.
3. MLB Foodfest
Baseball is in town baby! Wait, what? That’s right-the MLB is trying to sneak some fans with their own food tasting event in South London. For £8 you get entry to the fest, and then you can sample food from every MLB Stadium. Too bad they couldn’t have combined these huh?
4. Boozy Brunch
Ready for bottomless alcohol to start your Saturday? If you’re still buzzing from the rugby, then make sure you hit some of the coolest boozy brunches that London has to offer.
Love to drink and play in a ball pit? Great-then go to Ballie Ballerson! Drink, play, meet hot people.
What about a hip-hop and Afro Beats Brunch in a secret location? Book the tickets then they lead you to a really cool all you can drink/ eat breakfast? Then you want Bashment Brunch
Love Hip-Hop and a 3 course brunch of food & drinks all set to music? You will LOVE the Hip Hop brunch
Do you love football?
We mean soccer.
Well, you better-because weekends are football mad in the UK.
Saturday matches usually start at 12:30, 3pm, and a last game at 5:30.
If you are looking to watch other sports-good luck! Football is all that is on.
