Our friends at VisitEngland are once again seeking out the country’s most memorable, quirky events as part of the annual Where Else But England Award.

From Pasty Flinging Competitions to the World Egg Throwing Championships, the wacky and wonderful are being celebrated around the country. 

Visit London have nominated two of London’s own events in the capital; the annual Peter Pan Cup (a Christmas morning swimming race  in the icy Serpentine waters) and new urban adventure, the Soldier Challenge (an obstacle-filled race involving abseiling, crawling and kayaking through the streets of London).

Vote now to ensure London’s place on the shortlist!
