    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...

    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...

    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...
