    Football

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wherever there is green grass, there will be also place to play football. At weekends all those places are full of kids or adults from the amateur leagues playing their games. Nice to watch, but if you can, try to go to one of the premier league games.

    Who don't know Jimmy White the master in the Snoker game, I watch his (better to say Show than game) on TV in EuroSport channel
    with a pleasure, as when he plays the opponent must forget that he has a turn LOL
    Snokers and Pool are great games, fun and you can always find clubs to have this kind of sport every where in England!
    Go to Tottenham court road there is a huge mall called Trocadero for all kinds of games including Pool, Snokers is more to be a Klassy game ;-P

    Riverside Roar

    by cheekymarieh Updated Jun 20, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Middlesbrough FC play their home games at the Riverside Stadium. You will see Premiership football from August to May. Boro as they are nicknamed have a whole host of internationals on show when they play. The list includes:
    - Gareth Southgate, Ugo Ehiogu (England)
    - Mark Schwarter (Australia)
    - Joseph Job (Cameroon)
    - Szilard Nemeth (Slovakia)
    - Mark Crossley (Wales)
    - Massimo Maccarone (Italy)
    - Juninho (Brazil)

    The main stand at the stadium is the west stand and I would recommend the lower half from about row 10 upwards (so you don't get wet if it rains) or the upper stand. The seats around 100 are the more central ones in the stand.

    The club tries to encourage a family atmosphere within the stadium and I have never witnessed any major problems with hooliganisn within the stadium.

    Equipment: Wrap up warm as you may have the wind blowing in off the river. It can be cold when you least expect it ..

    A walk by the Gribble Inn

    by kwanou Written Mar 18, 2003

    Here's a walk you can do to work up your appetite:
    Approx. distance of walk: 4 miles. OS Map No. 197 SU 902/050
    There are few public footpaths in the area surrounding the pub. For this reason it does mean a lot of the walk is along the highway, and whilst most of the lanes are very quiet and peaceful care should be taken for the first half mile; although a minor road it can sometimes be busy. The section across the farm land can be rather overgrown in July and it can take more time than usual to locate the path. Other than that it is an easy, mostly dry level walk.

    Equipment: 1. Turn left from the inn back to the road junction and left again. After about half a mile take the turning on the right, cross the bridge and turn left at the bottom of the hill towards the level crossing at Woodhorn. Carefully cross the track and just past the entrance to the swelling, go over the stile in the hedge on the right, cross to the farm gate, enter the field and keep straight ahead walking close to the hedge on the right.
    2. Go over the stile in the far corner and still keeping close to the hedge, make your way across the field until you reach the ditch on the far side and then bear left. Keep close to the ditch for a couple of hundred yards looking for a crossing point, it can become very overgrown in summer. Cross into the field and bear left making your way over to the corner where a plank bridge allows easy access to the field ahead.
    3. Walk beside the boundary, past the derelict house on the left and straight ahead into the field in the direction of the finger post. Follow the left-hand boundary until you reach a farm track through a gap in the corner. Cross over and keep straight ahead down the narrow field to the plank bridge, climb the stile and bear left, up and across the field to the stile beside the gate, out into the lane and turn right.
    4. After a short distance turn left at the crossroads on the road to Aldingbourne. Walk through the village forking left at the junction on to the disused airfield. Bear right in the direction of the finger post and then left following the runway. I was last here in 1991 and noticed some areas of concrete were being lifted but have no doubt that the present route of the path will remain and be well signed. Cross another runway and bear left at the next, over to the stile beside the gate, out into the lane and turn right. Keep to the lane for about a mile ignoring the side turnings until the lane eventually bears left back to the pub.

    Conquering mountains.

    by SingSoc03 Written Feb 8, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you like to conquer mountains here, you have several choices.

    The highest peak in England is Scaffel in Lake district. The highest in Wales is Snowdon within Snowdonia National Park. Lastly, the highest in Scotland is Ben Nevis in Fort William.

    The winner for the highest peak in United Kingdom goes to Ben Nevis in Fort William, Scotland.

    Equipment: Warm clothings and shoes suitable for walking. There are several routes with different difficulty for you to conquer the mountain. There's also a well established track (easiest and most crowded) to conquer. If you like the most challenging path, of course, proper mountaineering gears are needed.
