Events Manager at Museum of London

Expert on Well-being in the workplace

Laura Archer is a born and bred Londoner with a phobia of being idle. She is a promising speaker on wellbeing at work and the author of “Gone For Lunch: 52 Things To Do In Your Lunch Break”.

The book came about after Laura decided to reclaim her lunch break and fill it with something different every week – and quickly came to realize the benefits to her health and well-being. When Laura isn’t going for lunch, she works full time at the Museum of London, running events and visits around town for their annual supporters (The Society of Londoners).

Gone for Lunch: 52 things to do in your lunch break


Gone for Lunch is for everyone who wants to reclaim their lunch break whether they have a whole hour, or just 30 minutes to spare. In this friendly, fun and inspirational book, there’s a challenge for every week of the year. Each activity is designed to be suitable for anyone anywhere at home or at work, in the city or the countryside.

After failing to take a lunch break for several weeks, Laura Archer set herself a lunchtime challenge for every week of the year and began chronicling her escapades. Drawing buildings, trying yoga classes, volunteering, going for bike rides, handwriting letters: her challenges ranged from indoor to outdoor, active to sedentary, and the effect they had on her was magical. She discovered old flames, past joys, new hobbies. By claiming back that single hour in the middle of the day, Laura turned her life into something richer and happier – a simple change, with wondrous consequences.
