Each year, London’s Elephant and Castle, SE1, is filled with inspiring creative people and an exciting atmosphere for Elefest. The festival brings together the best of London’s local talent in films, music, poetry and a whole range of other diverse art forms. We got speaking to Rob Wray, the director of Elefest, to hear what he has in store for this year’s festival and to relive some of Elefest’s highlights!

Check out our top five canal-side hangouts for inspiration to fill your weekends and longer evenings.

After all the fun and celebrations at the end of last year, our bank balances are still recovering! If you’re hibernating under your covers and spending all your free time at home bulking up your pockets again – stop! We don’t think you need to be spending any more time indoors because London has plenty to offer, without spending a fortune. Whether you’re looking for a night out or a casual way to spend your Sundays, we have something you can do for next to nothing.

This gorgeous Elephant & Castle spot, which was funded by Kickstarter, is a relaxing café by day which transforms into a buzzing bar and restaurant by night!
