Is it a plane, is it a bird, no it’s Joanne – Zip World

Zip World

Zip World has popped up literally in Archbishop’s Park for a short time from 18 July to 1 October 2017.

If you are looking for a very unique way to see views from London but with a rush of adrenalin then Zip World is for sure the way to go.

I had the pleasure in being one of the first to try out Zip Worlds new zip wire experience.

After getting all kitted up we then walked down to towards the 35m tower (apparently equivalent to 9 buses high).  This was a feat in it’s self especially someone like me who Continue reading

Reason why everyone had dressed up was not just to celebrate the fact that is was Bastille Day but also all of us whom had dressed up and dawned our beret each received a three course meal with wine & coffee.
