Things to do in lockdown??  Let’s be Frank or Sally (or anybody who exhibits a life outside the confines of their home!) life as we know is downright boring and Ground Hog Day is nothing like the movie!

With this in mind we set ourselves the task to find ways to expand our horizons, become better people and perhaps increase our skill set!  Ha, who we kidding, we literally set ourselves the task to find cool ways to entertain ourselves to overcome the overwhelming boredom that COVID affords us so as not to jump off the balcony!


I guess we should be thankful that we are not living through the Spanish Flu in 1918 and that online world affords us so many opportunities to still explore and experience things!

The Louvre

Hello Paris, Hello The Louvre!  Take a virtual tour of its many rooms and immerse yourself in all the extraordinary art and sculptures

The Tate Modern

Take a 360 tour of the Tate, when I lived in London this was one of my favourite spaces to visit!

The British Museum

So whilst the museum maybe closed they continue to make many exhibitions available online.  For instance, challenge what you believe Tantra to be about with the curators tour.  Or see an intimate view of the far reaching impact of Climate Change with the Arctic culture and climate exhibition.

The Royal Academy of Arts, London

If architecture is more your thing then definitely check out Sensing Spaces – Architecture Reimagined

The Frida Khalo Museum

Take a colourful walk through this glorious museum in Mexico!

The Metropolitan Opera

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ― Plato

Nothing could be more fitting in our current circumstances so lose yourself in the On Demand Streaming available from the The Metropolitan Opera.  It truly is a joy!

The Vienna State Opera

With their app, The Vienna State Opera have a free daily streaming offer for anyone to enjoy.


For more things to do in lockdown, why not step outside the confines of ‘traditional art’ and explore the pure genius and brilliance of the street artist!?  Undoubtedly one of the coolest ways to explore global street art – Google Art Project: Street Art (click on ‘surprise me’ and be, well, surprised!)


See some of the many wonders of the world

Admittedly the virtual experience will never trump the real thing!  Nonetheless, perhaps now is the perfect time to put together your bucket list and include places you hadn’t thought to include previously.  Also, I’m assuming that you realise that list below is merely a taster and far from finite or complete 😜

  1. The Great Wall of China (full virtual tour can be done for an additional fee)
  2. Yosemite
  3. The Terracotta Army in Xian
  4. The Palace of Versailles
  5. The Grand Canyon
  6. Petra – The Rose Red City
  7. Machu Picchu


Underwater Wonders

A slam dunk for my kids!  Watching sharks and strange creatures bobbing around in deep blue is hypnotic and definitely worth look!

  1. Monterrey Bay Aquarium live cams
  2. Georgia Aquarium live cams

Disney World

Unquestionably the cheapest way to visit!  Also, Virtual Disney World gives you taster without the queues and getting wet 🙂

Universal Studios

Go behind the scenes with their virtual tours or ride one of their rollercoasters (where if you like me you feel less likely to die!)


Well then my friends why not head to Mars!!  The Red planet is but a click away!

Things to do in lockdown


Has attending an Ivy League School always been a dream of yours?  Or perhaps having Cambridge or Oxford as your alma mater?

Well now is your chance EDX, foundered by MIT and Harvard offers an enormous range of FREE online courses from top institutions from all around the Globe!  It’s worth noting, if you wish to receive the verified certificate of completion there is a fee attached (a small price to pay in our opinion).
