    If You Have No Plans This Weekend, Don't Worry – We Found 10 Of The Best Things To Do In London This Bank Holiday Weekend

    Hello, bank holidays.

    It's officially (almost) summer. It's officially sunny. It's officially another sweet, sweet bank holiday weekend. Fellow introverts, I usually like to excuse us – but this weekend, I'm sorry, but we're going out.

    That said, we understand that making plans can be a bit much. So, to take away your last semblance of a get-out clause, we've hand-picked 10 of the very best things to do in London this Bank Holiday weekend:

    1. Never heard of midye dolma? Nor had I until I rocked up to The Midyeci near Haggerston, and I'm now addicted.

    2. Sink your teeth into Syon Park's two-day Foodies festival.

    3. Carrots & Daikon in Kentish Town is set to close this June (boo!), so I recommend you get your skates on ASAP to try the best banh mi and pho around.

    4. Get your groove on at City Splash's AfroBeats and Dancehall festival.

    5. Issy Wood's millenial masterpieces are pretty much a must-see.

    6. Head to Yaatra for some top-notch Indian dining (and the best cocktail I've ever tried).

    7. Peaky Blinders fans, catch the show's immersive experience before it leaves London this Sunday.

    8. Have a bloomin' brilliant time at the Chelsea Flower Show.

    9. Get some use out of that ~aesthetic~ tote bag by heading to Clapham's Spring Market.

    10. Fellow Newsies nerds will be delighted to hear that the US sensation has finally hit the UK stage.
