London's top five for fun

Thursday, May 19, 2011
Along with the hype of the recent royal wedding, London has become even more of a hot spot. We've come up with five fun things to do you might not have thought of.

1. Roller Stroll

Roller Stroll is free skating event and happens on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons. It starts at the east side of Serpentine Road and goes for around 12km, but you can hop on and off when you please.

2. Horseriding lessons

From four wheels to four legs, ride on horseback along Rotten Row in London's Hyde Park. It's been England's most famous equestrian venue for more than 300 years. Hyde Park Stables offers riding lessons for adults and children, year round. Ph: +44 20 7723 2813

3. Bel Canto opera dinners

If you're up for dinner and a show, Bel Canto has put a new spin of a night at the opera. Its waiters are some of the world's top students and stars of the future. For around $50 you will have two courses and be entertained by some very talented waiters. Ph: +44 207 262 1678

4. British Music Experience: Museum of Popular Music

For a more modern day out, the British Music Experience is like a ticket to your ultimate summer music festival, with every one of your favourite British bands headlining — plus a few Aussies into the bargain. Some of the most coveted music memorabilia of all time has been gathered, and the exhibition is basically devoted to 60 years of British popular music. Ph: +44 20 8463 2572

5. James Bond Tour of London

A chauffeur-driven and guided James Bond Tour of London takes you to movie locations as well as places that inspired the novels. The three-hour tours are intimate and glamorous and your Aussie guide, Tim Oberg, has an encyclopaedic knowledge of all things Bond. Ph: +44 20 7193 8770

There are free newspapers all across London and you will find plenty of interesting things in those. Keep an eye out for free entertainment!
