9 Things to do in London this March

March is a great month to get out and about in London. Whether you fancy dressing up as Where’s Wally and running round London, or indulging in an array of gourmet chocolate in Islington, there is lots going on in the city this month. I will be heading to London this month for afternoon tea in Soho for a friends birthday, and later in the month for a weekend visit on Easter weekend.
