Things to do in London, Birmingham & Edinburgh

Did you know, the average person in the UK spends five hours per week doing the laundry? That’s a lot of sorting, ironing, drying and folding – a lot of time that could be spent having fun or relaxing instead!

Each week we highlight the best things to do in London, Birmingham and Edinburgh with the time you can save when you use Laundrapp to do your laundry and dry cleaning for you. This week, we’ve got a selection of unusual museum events to bring an extra dash of culture to your weekend.



This Saturday take a rare and exclusive guided evening tour of Kew Palace. As you explore you’ll hear historical anecdotes from George III, Queen Charlotte and their 15 children. Tickets are only £10, so this is a great opportunity to delve into picturesque British history.



In the mood for something a little different this weekend? Check out Vivid Projects’ AV installation based on Jennie Livingston’s seminal documentary, Paris is Burning (1990). This is a free event and part of the Museums At Night festival – so keep an eye out of other events too!



If you’ve got a strong stomach then we suggest checking out ‘A Scandal in Surgeons’ Hall’ – an immersive Victorian crime scene that’s full of blood and guts. Fancy dress is encouraged and the £10 ticket also gets you access to the ceilidh, as well as fortunetellers and magicians.
