Tired of London, Tired of Life

One Thing A Day To Do in London



As the late great Samuel Johnson opined, ‘When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life’

If you're not getting the most out of London, it is a sad truth that you have no one to blame but yourself. Author, Tom Jones started the Tired of London, Tired of Life blog in 2008, after he began to tire of London life. Doing the same thing day after day can get anyone down, but the city of London has an almost infinite number of things to see and do. The only problem is that it can be hard to find inspiration when we need it, as we only seem to stumble across things when we're not really looking. Tired of London, Tired of Life, is a month-by-month, fully illustrated guide to London, where you can choose from seasonally-appropriate things to do. It includes note sections so you can jot your own ideas as well, or your thoughts about the places you’ve been to.So grab your copy of Tired of London and your A to Z and step outside to a near unlimited selection of experiences and events stretched out before you in this truly remarkable city.
