Things to do


Cuckooz | Competition


There isn’t one single reason for you to get excited about the prospect of winning a two-night weekend stay (with a guest of your choice) inside one of Cuckooz’s beautiful new short-stay, East End boutique apartments.

There are nine.

Win our competition and your weekend will start on a happy Friday evening in November. You’ll arrive at your apartment having (hopefully) packed lightly, because you’ll find practically everything that you’re going to need right there – from standard luxuries like fluffy bathrobes, Egyptian cotton sheets and home ware made by local East London designers to exclusive Bamford pamper packs filled with herbal teas, indulgent wash kits and a gift box from Only Child Store, worth £400.

After a quiet night’s sleep, you’ll arise on Saturday morning to find a stranger in your apartment.

That’ll be your own personal BLOK London yoga instructor, and they’ll be there to get you mentally and physically prepared for the day ahead (a day, incidentally, which is going to culminate in a complimentary meal for you and your guest at London’s hottest restaurant opening of 2016, Som Saa, followed by post-dinner cocktails at The Discount Suit Company).

And then it’ll be Sunday…

…which is the point at which you’ll finally be free to wind-down with a complimentary brunch of Swedish sharing platters and waffles at lip-smacking SMAKA, followed by a street art tour of the local area and free entry to William Kentridge: Thick Time at The Whitechapel Gallery.


NOTE: We’re giving one Nudge reader and a companion the chance to win this weekend package @ Cuckooz, Aldgate East, to be redeemed on a weekend of your choice (subject to availability) in November 2016. Enter by clicking on the ENTER button to the top right.

ALSO NOTE: Cuckooz is a new concept in serviced apartments designed to give you an authentic local experience. More information on the spaces that they have available to rent can be found HERE.
