We came across a list of viewing points in London. I have visited a few of them and they were worth it, so I am sure the ones I did not check would be enjoyable as well. The one place I would add would be Parliament Hill in Hampstead.
As every year, interesting places around London open their doors to the public.
openhouselondon.open-city.org.uk provides you access to places you will not otherwise be able to enter (at least legally…) If you have some time to spare that weekend, have a peek. Please note, some places need reservation and tend to get fully booked quickly.
We recently came across Trinity Buoy Wharf in the docklands and its interesting attractions. One of which is The Longplayer:
A very interesting, innovative musical installation that will play looong after we are gone. Make sure to go to the top of the Lighthouse to listen properly while enjoying the view.
The Tube is a vast network, well organized, smooth operating and generously overpriced But there are some parts of the network which were not as successful. There are more examples like that, but this one is apparently one of the best kept and right in the heart of London!
P.S. If someone knows a way in, let us know
A nice long weekend just started for some which gives a chance to do something interesting, or fun, or both – have it as you wish. We had a look at what can be done. The choice is vast and various and it is difficult to pick a choice, so we decided to take the easy way out and leave it with you 🙂 Here are some proposals, you might do one of these or get inspired to do something of your own!
Happy Easter from the Team at The Cleveland!
Here is some interesting, sometimes odd, facts about London. I suppose everyone can find something for himself.
London is growing. Crossrail 1 is nearly finished, Northern’s extension already commenced and now Bakerloo’s extension is getting approved. We still have to wait quite a while for them to be completed but, well, things cannot be to easy.
The winter is not quite yet here. Or, according to some, it is already over…
Nevertheless it should not be an obstacle to visit one of the best London’s winter attraction. Get scared on a few rides, win a teddy bear, eat a wurst and flash it with mulled wine or cider. Sounds like a nice evening
