  • Wembley Stadium

    London Sports & Outdoors

    Wembley Stadium is the official home of English football. I have been lucky enough to see Manchester United win many trophies on this splendid grass. The current stadium was opened in 2007 and was built on the site of the earlier Wembley Stadium which was demolished in 2003. Sadly when it was demolished so went the famous twin towers. The...

  • Football (Soccer)

    London Sports & Outdoors

    Loftus Road is home to Queens Park Rangers. It's a very small stadium with an all-seater capacity of 18,489. Being small, it gives the fans a close up view of the action. The stadium is situated in a residential area around the corner from Shepherds Bush. There are some decent pre and post match pubs in Shepherds Bush. This I the only ground I...

  • Emirates Stadium

    London Sports & Outdoors

    Having been to a couple of football stadiums around the Europe, I have to say that the Emirates Stadium beats all the others in terms of atmosphere. Even with a largely touristy crowd that day, the songs were in full flow, the chanting continuous. Those Gunners really know how to be the 12th man on the pitch! The modern seats were cushioned and...

  • Rugby (Union and League)

    London Sports & Outdoors

    In February 2007 a friend took me to a Rugby game of the 6 nations championships. England was facing Italy at Twickenham Stadium which is also called "The home of England Rugby". England won the game in the sold out stadium with 20:7. Twickenham Stadium was inaugurated in 1909 by the Rugby Football Union. At that time it had a capacity of 20.000...

    London Sports & Outdoors

    One of London's best known sporting events, the Marathon takes place in late April 2012 along a 26.2-mile route that starts in Woolwich (just near where we live as a matter of fact!), goes through Greenwich, Canary Wharf, the Embankment and finishes at the Mall in front of the Buckingham Palace.

The whole place it was buzzing with excitement, anticipation and worries from family and friends that they came along to see their loved ones off. The Clipper round the world yacht race...

    London Sports & Outdoors

    Update April 2014: more photos added, small changes to text If you enjoy watching football there’s plenty of choice in London. And while it can be hard to get tickets for matches at the biggest clubs, you’ll often have more fun at one of the smaller grounds. Our own favourites are ~ The Valley where Charlton play – a shame they're no longer in...

    I first heard about Rotten Row when I was editing a newsletter for a special interest group on horses. One of our members went to England and mentioned it. Rotten Row is the most famous riding trail in Central London. It is three quarters of a mile (1,125 metres) of soft, sandy track. This picture is NOT of Rotten Row, but of riders near Wellington...

  • Chelsea Football Club

    London Sports & Outdoors

    Stamford Bridge is home to Chelsea. It has an all-seater capacity of 41,798. It's a pretty decent stadium in central London. Tickets can be on the expensive tickets side, but at least the away fans now have a decent view from the Shed End. I think I've had tickets in most parts of the ground over the years. When I started going to Chelsea, away...

The first race, for motorcycles, took place on 27th May 1927 The track was only a mile long, with a mixture of hardpack on the straights, but tarmac bends, & this layout was utilised until it was extended by another mile & properly surfaced in...

  • Golf.

    London Sports & Outdoors

    When I was thinking of taking up golf, the main question was: 'Will I find time to actually practice it, given our (then mine) travel schedule?' Luckily, places like the World of Golf (of which there are several in UK, including the Sidcup one) make practice possible as they are open up to 10pm on weekdays and have both the floodlit driving range...
