About us

Thanks for visiting!

The Flaneur is a culture, travel and sports website that has existed since the last millennium. We cover everything interesting that a Flaneur needs to know, from the tastiest cheese to pair with a 2003 Bordeaux, to the best hotel to stay in in Philadelphia. In between we enjoy art and culture, fashion and style, music, theatre, sport and anything else that makes us smile. You might find us at the Tate, the Met, Lords or Le Mans – you’ll recognise us by our spirit of curiosity and handlebar moustache**.

For a full (and somewhat surprising) history of The Flaneur please click here 

We also publish an ad hoc real-world paper, have created the world’s first on-iphone film festival, run a smart phone app art exhibition, publish ebooks and generally spread bonhomie and good will.
