The Shady Old Lady's Latest News & Updates
Welcome to a new London adventure, the new digital destination for creative and independent adventurers visiting London.
It was formerly called The Shady Old Lady's Guide to London which morphed and grew in weird urban directions from the city to the outskirts. Like our favourite city, Shady had spells where she lost the plot, got hopelessly lost and then triumphed again in the oddest of locations in the capital's digital landscape.
Today we salute Shady who becomes our chief blogger and after a prolonged refurbishment we open our newly painted doors to all looking for adventure in London.
We realise we've been hibernating through winter and the good news is that we've been improving and adding to the vast collection of locations to stimulate idea's for your own London adventure.
Thank you for bearing with us and not (hopefully) writing us off as digital dust.
On with the Adventure!
