Why not explore the nearby areas of Barbican, City, Clerkenwell, Shoreditch, Spitalfields, Aldgate, Islington, Hoxton, Southwark and Holborn

"After being set the task of redesigning St Paul's Cathedral in 1669, Sir Christopher Wren originally designed the dome with a pineapple on the top. Although it was never instated, there are, however, two on top of the western towers."

The Barbican Estate's striking architecture defines Clerkenwell and the surrounding areas in the City.

I love the buzz of the City at dusk and the stunning architecture along the cityscape. It really makes me excited to live in London.

The majesty of St Paul's Cathedral's architecture and the historical significance is amazing...

Finsbury Judo Club

insbury Leisure Centre
Having coached Judo to Juniors over the past 30 years. I have found that there are very different approaches to how we can get the message from Professor Kano across to our young Judoka. Kano's view of Judo was quite clear. It was to be a good source of fitness, fun and discipline, rolled into a sport which could be enjoyed safely for all ages. With it roots in Ju-Jit-Su or ( Ju-Jut-Su) as a fighting Art, we find an easy cross over into Kano's Judo. Website
