See the World on Regent Street this Sunday
If you’ve been reading our blog, you might get the impression that we love experiencing different cultures from around the world. Well, that’s because we do! And if you do too, you can come and join us at the World on Regent Street in London this Sunday.
On Sunday 12th May, London’s Regent Street will be closed to traffic to welcome destinations such as China, Argentina, Trinidad and Tobago and Turkey for an international festival. And we’re sponsoring the event so we’ll be down there too!
Throughout the day, there will be a range of different activities and displays, each giving you a taste of the countries represented, as well as plenty of excuses for a bit of shopping too.
Here are some of the highlights of the day:
- Wine sampling, cooking demonstrations and tango lessons from Argentina
- Folkloric performances, cuisine, fashion display and professional henna drawings from Egypt
- A professional steel pan band and dancing carnival from Trinidad and Tobago
- Turkish coffee shop experience and food sampling with a live music band and dance floor
- Chinese drumming performance with lion dancing and martial arts demonstrations from Chinatown

About Dom Stapleton
As well as being the world’s northernmost capital city, Reykjavik in Iceland is also an incredible place to visit.
We stayed in a hotel right in the middle of the city and spent most days walking around from there. The main thing we noticed (apart from the cold, of course) was that the people are so friendly. At home, trying to cross the road is a nightmare, but in Reykjavik, the cars are literally queuing up to let you across.
When my partner and I went, in January 2013, the sun only started rising at about 10 am, which was a strange experience. And it got dark at about 4 pm each day!
