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 out-and-about activities to bring an extra dash of stress relief to your weekend.



If you fancy avoiding the FA Cup Final this Saturday then look no further than the Brindleyplace Dragonboat Festival. This free event raises money for Cure Leukaemia with a highly competitive race from 10am – 5pm, with 20 teams competing in a series of dragonboating heats.



Become a record breaker in London this Saturday and join British Military Fitness’s attempt for the most people doing squat jumps simultaneously for just one minute. And if you find that you want to keep going, you can stay for the massive fitness class after. What more could you want from a Saturday?!



Grab a coffee from one of Edinburgh’s fabulous coffee shops and check out Edinburgh Marathon Festival. This weekend the streets of Edinburgh will fill with runners of all abilities for races which range from a Junior 1.5k to a full marathon. It’s a great opportunity to soak up the city atmosphere!
