Something for people who like to walk a lot, and then a bit more This path, finished in 2005, allows you to explore London’s bit more peaceful areas not in but around the Centre. A total 78 miles or 125 km of routes through suburban areas, woodlands, parks and local high streets. Most enjoyable!
What is the future going to bring? A difficult question, always has been, open to a lot of speculation. Have a look at this exhibition to tickle your imagination and who knows, maybe you will predict something that will actually come true one day?
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
