The most offbeat things to do in London this winter

"When a man is tired of London he is tired of life", imparted Samuel Johnson - well before you could sit on a big wheel or stand in some pointy skyscraper looking a bit like the Eye of Sauron from Lord of the Rings.

There's a lot to do in the capital all right, but with more cool destinations than ever it's imperative you ditch the tourist trappings and seek out more leftfield fun. Which is why, with a few picks from Ben Smith, co-Founder of London On The Inside [Londontheinside.com], we've picked the coolest-cum-quirkiest events around.

From underground mini golf to doughnut ice cream sandwiches and boutique darts clubs, you're about to be the coolest person in your friendship group.
