Let’s think about what a cruisy weekend could look like! On the Saturday, head to Ikea Wembley in the morning when it’s less busy and get some interior inspiration. Your friend can’t lend you their car this time? Don’t worry, sign up for DriveNow and find a BMW or MINI nearby – there’ll be enough room in the back for all your shopping bags! Afterwards pick up your friends for a movie night at Lexi Cinema – all profits go to charity. On Sunday head to Queen’s Park Farmers’ Market for a relaxed start to the day with fresh food and independent market traders. Afterwards it’s time to rest, because who doesn’t like a chilled Sunday? If you’re still keen to leave the house again, spend your evening at the Kiln Theatre (former Tricycle Theatre). Take a DriveNow and arrive in style for one of their amazing plays. Or head to Bangbang Oriental FoodHall and feast on the widest range of specialist Asian restaurants in the whole of the UK. Be cultural
