What: Artist Rooms by Jenny Holzer

Where: Tate Modern, South Bank, London

When: Until July 2019

We love to disrupt and provoke multi-sensorial experiences in every aspect of Smith & Sinclair, whether it’s through making you feel nostalgic when licking our Prosecco Dippers or chasing after Edible Bubbles to try a different kind of Mojito. Jeeny Holzer is hosting a provoking exhibition in the Tate Modern until summer 2019 and it is one not to miss. Statements, quotes and poetry are plastered upon objects as simple as a plastic cup and as random as a condom – the words are the centre of her art. We want to show you places that stretch your mind and help inspire your day to day lives and creativity into the extraordinary.

Fancy something different & not far from the city? Our top pick of adventures close to London:

What: Stonehenge Tour

Where: Salisbury, UK

When: Whenever you fancy.

An iconic symbol of Britain, with over 4500 years of history behind this UK landmark, visiting Salisbury is a must when celebrating the wonders of our country. As the weather perks up into September and only an hour-and-a-half train journey from London, why not wonder around Stone Circle and the Neolithic houses to captivate Salisbury’s landmarks. With there still being questions around why it was built, from a burial to a site of astronomical heeling, people love to be inspired and educated about this masterpiece of engineering.
