132 (64) Street Golf – The Shoreditch Open

You have to travel to the ‘out-skirts’ to find a golf course in London. Alternatively, you can hit the streets. The Shoreditch open is one of the few courses in the world that Tiger Woods is just too afraid to take on. The way golf was meant to be played(?), fire hydrants covers for holes does not stop this being a challenging endeavour. Apply on line to tee-off against Shoreditch’s finest.

A breathtaking experience for the competitors this is a golden opportunity to yell encouragement, have some fun and wonder if maybe, perhaps, you should get abit more exercise. It is really cool if you can do all that eating a hamburger, kebab or chips.

139 ( - ) Hall Place and Gardens

The splendid Hall Place just reeks of its past and is well served with its adorable gardens that are hard to walk away from.

Hall Place was first built in 1537 for Sir John Champneys, a wealthy merchant and former Lord Mayor of London. The house boasts a panelled Tudor Great Hall, overlooked by a minstrel's gallery, and various period rooms. The 17th century additions and improvements by Sir Robert Austen include a vaulted Long Gallery and Great Chamber with a fine plaster ceiling.

The Hall Place presides over a 65 hectares estate on the banks of the River Cray at Bexley. Surrounding the house are award winning formal gardens with magnificent topiary, enclosed gardens and inspirational herbaceous borders. In the walled gardens there is a nursery selling plants grown in the Hall Place gardens, and a sub-tropical glasshouse where you can see ripening bananas in mid-winter.
