A lottery tour of London? Why not?

In the spirit of something different to do during these cold dreary days, I thought I’d entertain you with this fun idea…

I recently learnt that many of our famous London tourist spots are sponsored by the National Lottery, and may not have existed in their present form if the Brits didn’t like to play the lottery so much(!). Since I’m one of those guilty lottery-playing Brits, I thought I thought I may as well get involved. I had no idea that over 50% of us in the UK submit our lucky numbers on a weekly basis to both the National Lottery and the EuroMillions (the most popular lotto game in the UK).

I had no idea because let’s be honest – playing the lottery doesn’t exactly scream charity! Continue reading

5 Easy Escapes to Explore from London

So I’ve been living in London for more than just a little while now, but even with all the effort I put into exploring what is now my local environment I probably won’t ever be able to say I’ve covered every single inch. There’s undeniably more than a lot to do here, but often one might feel like what are mostly the weekends over which they have to explore the city limit them in a way because that’s pretty much when everybody goes out to play. Some of the most popular places can feel crowded, in which case you might be interested in exploring some other destinations which are easy to escape to from London, on continental Europe.

Are Clean Air Zones another step closer to reaching the 2040 air quality plan?

Oxford city council have come out with an announcement of their plans to become the world’s first zero emissions city, as they believe, pledging to ban diesel and petrol cars from their city centre roads by 2020.
