What can you do to cheer you up when feeling sad in London / The UK
When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.These wise words can be easily the name of the following article. No doubt, London’s a great city no matter which way you look at it, but melancholia has no GPS and sometimes you can find yourself feeling down, even in your dream town. So if you find yourself in London and feeling less than swingin’, try these ten little remedies – they might put the spring back in your step or at least make you feel better about feeling bad.
1. Visit Tate Modern International and contemporary art gallery. Flip up to the 7th-floor restaurant first for a de-crapifying glass of wine and a bowl of olives. Bag yourself a window seat and let that grubby London skyline convince you it’s not all bad, then check out the gallery’s incredible contemporary art when you’re wine-soaked and mellow.
2. Go to Greenwich. A quick 15-minute train trip will get you to boho and villagey Greenwich. Have a pint at the riverside Trafalgar Tavern (Dickens’ old watering hole) then take moody pictures of yourself in theGreenwich Foot Tunnel, where you can over-act and pretend you’re in an 80s video.
3. Brighton. One way to cheer yourself up in London is to get the hell out of it. Hop on the express train and within fifty minutes you’re in the cafe’d clutches of bawdy old Brighton, the slightly tattered home of the original seaside dirty weekend.
