London Photo Festival 2018
The London Photo Festival was created to give new and emerging snappers a platform to get their work seen (and not bankrupt them). People basically submit their work and if it's good, it goes on display here. And then people can come and see it for free: a simple plan that just seems to work. The theme this year is Street Photography which has our imagination running wild.

This Shoreditch studio offers pilates, barre, yoga, and meditation classes a-plenty. They specialise in their signature Frame Yoga class, which is designed to wake-up, invigorate, strengthen and prepare your mind for the day ahead. It also targets all those pesky aches, pains and postural issues from working at your desk. Move it, shake it, frame it!
Nike+ Run Club
Seeing a big ol' brand name like Nike might make you want to run a mile... but that's kind of the point. Their run club is free to enter. All you gotta do is register on their website and reserve your spot. They have runs that start from Nike Town, Covent Garden, Stratford, White City, Blue Water and Mile End with 5km, 7km and 10km routes. They also have gait analysis, a bag drop and water at the finish. Check their website for upcoming runs.
**Closed** High energy. Low impact. Cycle under water and you might burn 800 calories in an hour's session (or drown). These sessions are 45 minutes long, working different parts of the body on the special bikes. At the end of it, that body might feel pretty tired but it'll also feel mighty fine. The timetable varies so check the website and book yourself in.
Most London lidos are full of frantic swimmers trying to squeezing in a few lengths before or after their day at the desk, but Ruislip's Lido is a whole different kettle of fish. This is more akin to a wild swimming spot than a lido and is the only sandy beach in London (depending how generous you are with where you consider to be London). Take the short trip from Northwood Hill's underground station and you'll find this 60 acre sand beach on the edge of Ruislip Woods. Recent redevelopment programs have sorted the water out, meaning you can swim, and there are also boats you can rent which is just lovely, isn't it?
