Trafalgar Square in Twilight

Somerset House Ice Rink

One of Londons best rinks. What's special about this one is the colored lighting that adds atmosphere, the decent music system, and the lighting generally around somerset house. The bar lounge is also pretty decent. There is a small isolated area at back for beginners or children. As well as a viewing area where people can walk into the ice area. The ice itself is well maintained, clean, no puddles, smooth. Compared to Canary Wharf ice rink, the ice is much smoother (Canary Wharf often gets full of leaves or puddles), however unlike Canary Wharf, you are not allowed to bring a camera onto the ice which is a bit of a silly rule nowdays. You can take pictures from the front however off ice. My biggest tip is to go when it's not busy. Being on one of Londons busiest streets, it has a lot of visitors. One of the first or last sessions is best if you want some space. Read more...

The Household Cavalry Museum

The courtyard itself is well worth a look in (since it's free), even if you're not a tourist. The horses and guardsmen are all really friendly. If you encounter a member of the Household Cavalry while they're not on official duty (such as if you're lucky to be there on a social/promotional event), then they are all really splendid, genuine, heartwarming, and friendly people. This is the unit that form the guards in front of Buckingham Palace, so the people that do this job are happy to talk about how it works, what they do, etc etc. There is a museum on site giving the history of the unit in general as well as outlining it's modern day duties. Well worth a visit. Read more...

BBC Broadcasting House

An interesting and eye catching building given the pink/blue illumination, and the chance to see in the 'BBC One Show' studio on the ground floor. But the best of all, is the random single ping pong table in the corner, and yes, it still has a ping pong ball and two rackets which thankfully have not yet been lost or stolen. It's a rare thing to find in London so have a play! Read more...
