Swingers will you score a par, birdie or eagle

This Summer might be a wash out for most golfers and those who love to dine al fresco but I know of a venue within London where you can enjoy golf and eat within a themed beach setting but without getting wet, and that is Swingers in the West End.

Swingers is an all adult miniature 9 hole crazy golf experience, but it’s more than just golf as it’s also a social venue with many bars and street food outlets. Sip on tasty drinks, enjoy a variety of delicious street food and party on down to the tunes of their resident DJ.

Simply Swingers is a place to play, drink, eat and have a good time.

I went down on a press basis along with my husband Jason to check out Swingers within the West End and even though it has been open since 2018 it still looks brand new and still buzzing with atmosphere.

Swingers Crazy Golf

Swingers is founded by CEOs and Co-Founders; Matt Grech-Smith and Jeremy Simmonds.

Back in 2014 Swingers swung into London, Shoreditch within a warehouse bringing a combination of crazy golf, cocktails and street food. After 5 months and being a great success Matt and Jeremy decided to seek a permanent home and eventually in 2016 they managed to pop up within a permanent space within the City of London. In 2018 they decided to open up a second venue within Oxford Circus, with further plans for more venues to pop up within London. Each have different themes. Plus Swingers can also be played within America, Washington DC where you can choose from The Clocktower and The Waterwheel. Also a new one will be popping up within New York soon.

Could I be the next Robin Hood? – Archery Fit

The last time I ever played archery was when I was back at school, which let’s just say was a very long time ago but the passion always remained with me.  For example whenever I go on a cruise holiday (www.lovecruisesworldwide.com) I always compete in the archery competitions on board however unfortunately the arrows are not proper ones as they only have suckers on them but nevertheless it is still very fun.  Also my passion for archery has grown over the past decade or two through watching inspiring characters from movies and TV such as Robin Hood and the very sexy Daryl Dixon from Walking Dead.

Licence to Thrill – Up at the O2

Have you ever wanted to dare to experience something new and invigorating? then why not climb over one of London’s most iconic landmarks. Up at the O2 is an experience like no other and you will get a stunning 360 degree panoramic view to a thrill.

The Millennium Dome then the O2

Before I tell you about my fun journey to the O2 and my exhilarating experience here is some further background of the O2.  

It originally opened up back in 31 December 1999 as the Millennium Dome and was created as a monument to space and time. Did you know that each of the yellow pillars represents the 12 months of the year, the height of 52m is for each week and it is 365 degrees round to represent each day in the year. During it’s time whilst open it had a number of exhibitions and events throughout the year.

It closed at the end of 2000. It then went into redevelopment for a new indoor entertainment complex which was undertaken by Meridian Delta Ltd. Construction of the arena started in 2003. It reopened in 2007 and was renamed after its primary sponsor, the telecommunications company the O2.

The O2 then has become an iconic example of architectural significance in the London. You can do many activities within, be it to see a concert, watch a movie or even visit an exhibition. Continue reading
