If there was ever a time to fleetingly consider doing a juice cleanse, it’s quite possibly now. We’re right in the middle of the week between Christmas and New Year, the one where you’re not totally sure what day it is but you are sure that you’ve probably eaten a little bit too much cheese and possibly drunk a little too much wine. Panic not. Maybe with the help of a green juice you’ll be glowing again in time for your New Year’s Eve revelry. Or maybe not. But whether you need a last minute attempt to acquire some sort of kale induced radiance, to squeeze into your NYE outfit, if you’re begrudgingly considering researching where you can kick off a healthy 2017 or you’re a juice fanatic all year round, check out our picks for the best juice and smoothie bars around!
Everyone loves trying new food, it’s all part of the joy of traveling to a new city. But what about when you want to go back to the same place again and again?

Fear not, if you’ve travelled to Bologna and have fallen head over heels for traditional Bolognese tortellini (who wouldn’t?) or to London and have stumbled upon the best pancakes in town at Where The Pancakes Are, two of our locals have got some insider info so we can share the recipes with you and you can recreate these delicious dishes at home!
Still not decided where to escape to for your Christmas city break? Don’t panic.
