Taste of London

WHAT: Start fasting now, because you’ll want to be able to eat your own body weight at this foodie extravaganza. More than 100 stalls will sell gourmet grub and booze, and you’ll be able to sample the dishes of London’s poshest restaurants.

WHEN: June 17-20

DO IT BECAUSE: There’s a bit of live jazz and some opera to help it all go down, as well as some good picnicking spots. But mostly, there’s a heap of fantastic food and booze, all to be enjoyed outdoors in the English summer. It sells itself.
