Night Safari

Wander around the eerily dark corridors of the Natural History Museum to witness the creepiest creatures at night.

The next Night Safari checking out dinosaurs and creepy crawlies is a ‘Terror Tour’, where five scientists will surprise you with their favourite frightening creatures.

Make sure you head to the bar after for a well-deserved drink.

Oct 31, 7pm-10pm, £28
Cromwell Road, SW7 5BD
Tube | South Kensington

Swap-a-rama Razzmatazz

Bored of your clothes but too skint to buy new ones?

Then spend a few quid and swap your outfit at this monthly night out in east London, which takes place at various hipster venues, such as XOYO and Floripa.

It offers a whole new take on the phrase: I’m going to get into someone’s pants tonight.

Oct date not yet released, check venue websites for details. £3

Ping

This is not your regular bar – here leather sofas meet cocktails alongside ping pong tables. As you would expect, it attracts American college-types looking for a raucous game of beer pong.

Thurs-Sat 6pm-2am, free

Archipelago-Restaurant

Dine surrounded by Buddhas, palm trees and peacock feathers at this surreal eating experience.

The menu is suitably bonkers, too, with dishes such as crocodile, wildebeest and kangaroo.

Naked in Public

Let it all hang out at Rio’s Naturist Club with a load of other folks in their birthday suits.

Here you can take a dip in the hot tub, watch TV, go to the tanning room or do laps in the pool.

If all the excitement leaves you hungry, you can head to the snack bar, naturally. Prices vary for men and women.

11am-7am daily, £21

Smelliest Street

Next to the Savoy there’s a Webb sewer gas lamp.

Previously it was ignited by sewer gases (courtesy of hotel guests). Historically the road is known as ‘farting lane’.

Roller Skiing

When you tire of roller skating and it’s not yet time to strap on the skis, why not combine the two for this quirky workout?

Just like cross-country skiing but without the snow, it means you can get a piste of the action without even leaving the Big Smoke.

The boots are like the ones you use on snow but it feels like a cross between running, skating and skiing.

Book for a beginner’s lesson or a four-week course.

Sat 11.30am-1.30pm, £24
Triangle Car Park Hyde Park, W2 2UH 
Tube | Lancaster Gate
