The Randomness Guide to London is a wiki-based system running on the OpenGuides software. We set it up mainly because it lets us and our friends keep track of interesting places in London that we might want to visit. If someone recommends a pub in, say, Kensington, we add it here, including geographical data so the next time we're going to be in the area we can easily get a list of places that we'd fancied checking out.
This isn't intended to replace other great sources of information like What Pub, Chowhound, Wikipedia, or Time Out — you'll see that many of our pages have links to information on those resources. It just lets us gather those links in one place, and tag and categorise them so it's easy to find a pub, restaurant, or cinema that suits our precise needs of the moment.
(We do, of course, have opinions of our own, and you'll find them on this site as well.)
