Is it possible to do boris-biking for fun and exercise? I'm visiting the capital next week, and looking for recommendations of very quiet or ideally traffic-free routes in London - central enough to be able to do in a series of <30m boris-bike hires. Hyde Park and Regents Park are obvious options - are there any others?
Can anyone recommend a gastropub or similar near the Barbican in London for a celebratory meal on a weekday lunchtime? Possible problem - we may have a 6 month old baby with us. [more inside]
Can anyone recommend a room to rent in central London for an evening do? We'd like the room from 6.30-10 (or so). Needs to be able to hold about 100, with projection facilities, and preferably with the ability to bring our own refreshments (or to have decent and cheap catering).
I'm looking for places (papers/websites) where people advertise flats to let direct to tenants, in London. [more inside]
