"In 1814, there was an explosion at the Horse Shoe Brewery on the corner of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road. A seven metre high vat of beer exploded causing a blast that could be heard five miles away, smashing through other vats and creating a sea of 1.25 million litres of beer. It was so bad that eight people drowned."

The National Gallery showcases the world's most regarded artists in the heart of London.

Mum and BabyYoga - Pregnancy Yoga

Dragons Hall - Holborn & Covent Garden
Pregnancy is one of the most amazing experiences of a woman's life and yoga has long been recognised, by doctors and midwives to be one of the most effective means of easing birth. By working and connecting the body, mind, and spirit, yoga can help a mother feel comfortable, relaxed and fit during pregnancy, support the health of her growing child and ease delivery and labour pains. Pregnancy yoga has many benefits. On a physical level the specially adapted yoga postures will help strengthen tone and create flexibility in the body. The sessions will boast vitality, reduce stress and help relieve common pregnancy ailments such as back ache and fluid retention. The breathing exercises relax the nervous system and bring increased oxygen to the body and therefore the baby. They are very useful to use during labour to help deal with the contractions. Website
