Here's the challenge, to: "Tell about activities that can be done close to your local sailing venue, besides sailing".
Well, I live, sail, and kayak in London, and that means there's quite a lot of things open to do! I love this city, am proud of it, and happy to babble on about all the many different things one can do.
But it is a good question, and one that I've been asked before. Of course there is a huge depends - are you into Musicals? The Arts? Roman History? Medieval History? Royalty? Shopping? Activities? Museums? Concerts? Pop? Films? Drama? Architecture? Boats? Trains? Dinosaurs? Harry Potter? Shakespeare? ... well you get the picture.
While there are the obvious ones of the British Museum, The Wheel, Parliament etc (see above), there are two things that spring to mind as recently I did have a friend coming through London and this very question came up.
So over the next two posts I'll give two different answers to that question.
