Visit London in 2010 mid May and wanna watch live show Barclay Premium League

by iretyc

I m a lady from Hong Kong and new to this country and gonna have my first self visit in London from May 15 to May 23. One of my dreams being there is to watch a live show in the Stadium for the English Premium Football League, any suggestion the best way I should arrange that? I know that it is approaching the finale period of the Premium League, any chance I can watch the match?

I dont have any preference what seat gonna be or which team to watch, just wanna feel the live atmosphere for the first time in my life :P

I regret you may have left it too late as the Englich Premier League concludes its matches on or around the 9th May!
The FA Cup Final is at Wembley on 15th May.
If you could get tickets for that, you would certainly experience the atmosphere you seek but they are VERY hard to come-by!

Yes, sadly for you the Premier League season finishes earlier than usual this year owing to the World Cup 2010 finals in South Africa. In any case, tickets for Premiership matches in London are almost impossible to obtain, as almost every game is a sellout to club members and season ticket holders.

If you do not mind stepping down one level, the playoffs for promotion to the Premier League will be in progress. Although the dates for the semi-final matches have yet to be announced, I do know that the play-off Final will be at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 22 May. These matches can be as exciting, if not more exciting, as there is so much at stake for the two clubs involved. Expect 80,000 or more fans to be there. Ticket information will be available once the two finalists are known.

Travel Tips for London

Food

by africaking

Ah, the culinary delights of British cuisine, fish and chips, or if you are feeling adventurous have a kebab, this seems to be part of the "going out" night.

Basicly you and your friends meet up on Friday night at your local boozer, drink as much as you can before the bar closes at 11pm, then possibly head to the local club, drink even more till that closes at 2.30am. After that you and your friends go in search of a take away, it doesn't matter what you order, cause at this stage you don't care as long as it's hot and edible, 9 out 10 times you will get a kebab with everything on it, and devour it within minutes whilst talking to your friends and mumbling incohearant words at the take away staff.

All in a nights fun, the true British way

Old-style phone boxes

by phil_uk_net

The old-style phone boxes are as British as red double-decker buses, black cabs and policemen with funny helmets. Sadly though, they are slowly disappearing due to a number of factors. It started a while ago when BT began replacing them with modern versions that were easier to clean and maintain. Due to the enclosed nature of the old ones they made convenient conveniences, if you know what I mean! In recent years the phenomenal growth in the use of mobile phones has seen a reduction in the use of public phone boxes. BT sold a lot and I heard that some people were turning them into shower cubicles. This required strengthening the bathroom floor as they weigh a ton!
There is still a need however for public phones so they will continue to exist. New ones have replaced a lot of the old ones but in areas of historic significance the old ones have been left. I think there would be a public outcry if they all went.

Covent Gardens

by CandS

We visited Covent Gardens in 2000 on a Sunday and it was totally bare with noone in sight...we visited Covent Gardens on a Saturday in 2005 and it was a really busy place...so different to how I remembered it last time. Covent Gardens is full of small cafes, shops and markets...as well as some entertainers trying to make a buck. It's a nice place to spend some time...

World's largest observation wheel

by unexplored

Take a ride on the British Airways-sponsored London Eye, built to mark the turn of the millennium. At 450ft it is the world's largest observation wheel and on a clear day you can see for 25 miles. The 32 enclosed capsules, each holding 25 people, take 30 minutes to make a full rotation - a speed slow enough to allow passengers to step in and out of the capsules while the wheel is still moving.

Flowery frontyards in the suburbs in summer!

by angiebabe

London is lovely in summer - and the Brits seem to really love their flowers.

Something I noticed when I walked a lot getting from place to place around the suburbs - yes those typical city living streets with houses connected to one another the full length both sides of the streets - was the prevalence using whatever space was available to display colours of summer with a frontyard garden or pot plants or window boxes.

Often ranging in scale and exuberance.

If you get the chance to walk through side streets and back streets instead of touristing via public transport Im sure you wont regret it!
