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

"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.

The street art on this wall is constantly changing, which makes for a beautiful and rousing walk to work every morning. Expect the unexpected on Great Eastern Street!

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
