Marble Hill Park
Once the private playground of ladies and lords, Marble Hill Park is open to the public now. With a fantastic view of the Thames, the park is not the largest but the most beautiful park in London. On the hill you still find the villa of the Countess of Suffolk, but a sport event has become the real highlight here: Ultimate Frisbee. Do you remember the time when Frisbee was a mere pastime between sunbathing and plunging into the water? That's over now: Today, the flying disk is thrown professionally, in a team, with shirts, on a court and the like. If you want to take a look at the new trend sport, you should pass by on Sundays. From 11:30, a corner of Marble Hill Park hosts Ultimate Frisbee contests.   The rules are simple: There is a pitch, the goals are called end zone, and the teams are made up of seven players each. If you throw the disc, you are not allowed to run; if you run, you are allowed to catch and whenever the Frisbee is on the ground, it's time for the opponent to go for it. It can't be long before the sport becomes an Olympic discipline. Ultimate Frisbee is still very new, but if you want to be part of it right from the beginning you should come by and have a couple of beers with the fans.

The Gun
The problem with pubs is meals because beyond ale and beer you won't find anything suitable for your stomach. At "The Gun" you get both. You get fish sandwich and cosy leather sofas, Lord Nelson ambience and grilled ox tongue, macaroni with cheese and blue cheese from the Auvergne. The only question that remains is: Do you feel like fine dining or pubquiz? Would you rather have a view of the Thames or tea in the salon?   The Gun offers everything to any taste: Sunday lunches for families, Adnams Bitter and Aspall's Cider for students or sailor's paintings and swords on the wall for the seasoned guests. While the Gun has style, it is also loyal to its reputation as a pub. And it is  the best restaurant on the docks at that.

Absolute Vintage
The reference point for English shoe sizes: 5 equals size 38. If you want to test this we suggest you pop in the Absolute Vintage as its name holds what it promises: You will find any, truly any shoes of yesteryear.   From fashion's point of view, yesteryear means really old but the notion also applies to decades when bright yellow stilettos were seen as often on the streets as Margaret Thatcher on TV. Or when belts where narrow and silver-coloured but shoes wide and high. Or when boots were tasselled, for sure. From the fifties to the eighties you find anything here that was expensive then and is en vogue again: Top-Gun shades for watery eyes or shoes by Chanel, the latter of timeless beauty anyway.   If you throw another eighties party and you weren't able to afford the Gucci purse then, we suggest you make a detour to  the Absolute Vintage. And if you think that the stuff in your wardrobe will be out the next day anyway, you are wrong - and also wrong at this place. Simply wait for the next revival!

The Soho Hotel
Don't panic: The huge cat at the entrance won't hurt you. Made of bronze and by Fernando Botero, it won't even play with you, so don't allow yourself to be intimidated, just continue to the reception. It pays off to check in here: The luxury boutique hotel is the first of its kind in Soho. While the neighbourhood is not that great - surrounded by bleak blocks of flats, the windows of your room facing them - the guests come anyway. Soho is Soho, after all, and it is chic.   And it doesn't matter at all that the hotel once used to be a multi-level parking garage. But you won't notice that on the inside which boasts friendly very British interior, a kind of modern cottage style. While there's an open fireplace, there's modern art as well. While there are striped wallpapers, there are bathrooms of granite as well.   While there is tea at the salon, you won't find creaking stairs. And even hard-core history fans have to admit: There's something about having a gym at the hotel. And having a cinema of your own at that will take the cake. You don't need to step outside at all anymore. Double room from 290 Euros per night.
