    Yeah, anyone heading that way should just visit one of the 6000 or so national parks nearby instead. Now those are worth travelling for.

    Definitely one of my regrets thus far. Really need to fix it asap.

    Going down to Middleton with a couple mates next weekend. While I am there I will go up the road to Port Elliot for a day, Shaun Tait owns one of the pubs there. Would love to have a chat with Sloon about his career tbh

    Any London recommendations, other than the usual stuff?

    I would suggest the South Bank and everything around that area. Canary Wharf for the architecture and scale of the place (mostly deserted at the weekend). Westminster and Buckingham Palace and all that etc. Royal courts of justice quite fun to visit as well imo, if you're into that sort of thing. Lots of great architecture in legal London (i.e. In and around the Strand) in general actually. Soho always amusing and plenty of good places to eat and drink around there. Same goes for Shoreditch, but that's a bit too trendy for my tastes.

    Canary Wharf's a soulless hole imo. South Bank is good to visit, though obviously swarming with tourists - as most places around London are I suppose. Have thought for a while that a good starter walking route is getting the tube to St Pauls, then heading across to Leadenhall Market, across the bridge to Borough Market for food then going along the south side of the river to Waterloo/South Bank. Would also recommend going to a comedy club, plenty of places do free ones where you pay whatever you want at the end, I've been to Angel Comedy a few times and to a couple of other ones too. Maybe head out to Richmond Park and wander around, see the deer there, it's a nice area too though pricey.

    Cabinet War Rooms are brilliant.
    The Tate is a must.
    Covent garden rooftop pub for a beer is good for people watching
    Chancery Lane is great

    Generally, just walk. Always something interesting. And hope it doesn’t rain because it’s miserable when it does

    This isn't true for all cities, but for London the usual suggestions are the usual suggestions because they are really good.

    Watch out for museum/art gallery fatigue. London is exhausting in this way. It's easy to find you stop enjoying, because you are trying to cram too much into a day.

    Just walk is a good suggestion, although it doesn't help the fatigue too much.

    Tate Modern if you're into art. There's a great blues bar in Soho called Ain't Nothin' But which had surprisingly reasonably priced drinks for the area. Enjoyed seeing a view of London from Ally Pally.

    I had no desire to visit LA until I saw the doco City of Gold. Want to go there just for food now.

    It is, but it looks cool imo.

    Wouldn't dream of going there during the week, but at the weekend you basically have the place to yourself, and the sense of scale is pretty eerie.

    Haha it's overrated sure but it doesn't suck. Burger & Lobster on the other hand is overrated af. Hard to go wrong with lobster rolls and steamed lobster but for that price..

    Some pretty cool exhibitions were up at Saatchi gallery when I was there recently.

    Yeah fair enough, it does not suck, but it really is nothing special at all. So overrated.
