You’ve made it. It’s the weekend. Don’t waste it wondering what to do now that winter appears to have abruptly begun.

We’ve got you covered with a little help from YPlan.

From the hottest line-up in London to the best booze on in the city, here’s what you could (and should) get up to. 

JAMES BOND

James Bond’s London Tour

WHAT: Daniel Craig may be sick of him, but we certainly aren’t. Britain’s best export hails from London-town and this tour takes you around the most iconic scene locations in the films, including the home of Bond’s family motto and Q’s secret lab.

WHERE: Barbican Station, Barbican

HOW MUCH: £10

SCOTTISH DRINKS

A History of Scottish Drinks in 90 Minutes

WHAT: It does what it says on the bottle, really. Explore the history, production and stories of alcohol in Scotland, including tasters of Ogilvy Vodka, Rock Rose Gin, Eden Mill Gin, Wemyss Malts, Bowmore and The Last Great Malts of Scotland.

WHERE: Mussel Men, Shoreditch

HOW MUCH: £15

GET TICKETS HERE

Black butter records

Black Butter x East London Series 

WHAT: From the label that brought us Rudimental, Clean Bandit and Gorgon City (plus many more) comes a birthday bash (theirs) that is shrouded in mystery. As one of their last events of the year, they aren’t revealing the line-up but given their track record you won’t want to miss it.

WHERE: The Laundry, London Fields

HOW MUCH: £15

GET TICKETS HERE

HACKNEY

Hackney Wonderland

WHAT: A bargain, that’s what. You get one ticket for one day for four different venues (Oslo, Sebright Arms, London Fields Brewery and Oval Space) and the option to see 22 bands play live. Take your pick, Hackney is your oyster.

WHERE: Hackney

HOW MUCH: £20

GET TICKETS HERE

OKTOBERFEST

Okto-Beer-Fest

WHAT: While some get excited about Halloween, we get excited about Oktoberfest, as does most of London seemingly. Head to pub favourite The Gun for outdoor drinks under a marquee overlooking the Thames for some of the best celebrations in town.

WHERE: The Gun, Docklands

HOW MUCH: £14
