Niceness isn’t exactly the coolest concept, but what it loses in edginess it definitely makes up for in usefulness. There’s certainly plenty of evenings and weekends I’ve just wanted to do something… nice. Urban Path has a nifty ‘Top 100’ Nicest Things to do in London, and the ones I recognise in it are certainly… nice. Yauatcha and Ottolenghi definitely fit the bill. Well worth looking at should you just *happen* to need any nice ideas of in the next couple of days….
The picture on the right is of the staircase in the big Waterstone’s bookshop on Piccadilly, a very nice bookshop where I could spend hours.
