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
We noticed that we have not suggested any museum for quite a while. Even after skipping the famous ones there is so many left, and today we chose this.
Today’s medicine is quite amazing, there are many diseases we can now cure and more and more complicated injuries can be fixed. It must be interesting to see how we got there…
It will be very bright and loud ion London this weekend. The sky will light up in many places across the city, here is a list of the biggest shows:
It might be difficult to get tickets (for example Alexandra Palace is sold-out) but there always might be a spot somewhere around with a nice view. If you want to see the fireworks but do not have the ticket, these option is worth investigating 😉
