London Video of the Week: Tiny London by TheWorldsCities http://blog.visitlondon.com/2012/11/london-video-of-the-week-tiny-london-by-theworldscities/ http://blog.visitlondon.com/2012/11/london-video-of-the-week-tiny-london-by-theworldscities/#comments Fri, 30 Nov 2012 12:30:58 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=30301

This week, I wanted to share this great video from TheWorldCities, which gives some of London’s most famous locations a “toy-town” makeover.

Look out for Liverpool Street Station, the Houses of Parliament, Boris Bikes, Earl’s Court Station, Millenium Bridge, Charing Cross, Monument, Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus and Tower Bridge as you’ve never seen them before!

Video of the Week: Santa in London on Boris Bikes http://blog.visitlondon.com/2010/12/video-of-the-week-santa-in-london-on-boris-bikes/ http://blog.visitlondon.com/2010/12/video-of-the-week-santa-in-london-on-boris-bikes/#comments Fri, 24 Dec 2010 13:00:14 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=18373

Yesterday, we had a photo of cycling santas. Today, a video. This feels like a suitably silly festive film for you this Christmas Eve.

See if you can spot the following attractions as this team of santas (and a couple of rudolfs) take their boris bikes for a spin around London:

Well done to the team from the FreshNetworks office for putting together this brilliant bit of seasonal nuttiness. Great soundtrack too. Enjoy.

Visit London Asks: What Are You Doing to Celebrate International Women’s Day? http://blog.visitlondon.com/2010/03/visit-london-asks-what-are-you-doing-to-celebrate-international-womens-day/ http://blog.visitlondon.com/2010/03/visit-london-asks-what-are-you-doing-to-celebrate-international-womens-day/#comments Mon, 08 Mar 2010 11:46:02 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=7033 Happy International Women’s Day! IWD is a global day to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women from the past, in the present and in the future.

In some places (Bulgaria, China, Russia, Vietnam) International Women’s Day is a national holiday.

Here in London, there are lots of events to celebrate IWD. We want to know what you’re up to on this special day.

International Women’s Day Events in London:

  • Novelists Diana Evans and Benardine Evaristo are at Rich Mix tonight, talking about the theme of migration in their work. This event is also part of the East Festival.  7.30pm.
  • Join Me On The Bridge is an international campaign promoting peace and development across the world. In London, a parade is gathering at Victoria Embankment Gardens for 10am, and walking to the Millenium Bridge at 12noon for a photograph. (The same thing is happening on bridges across the world from the Bahamas to Uganda, including the Brooklyn Bridge)
  • Tonight at the Haunch of Venison, there’ll be a series of dance performances for International Women’s Day. Contemporary ballet, traditional Balkan and South Asian and Sufi whirlers as well as pieces from top female performance artists Eloise Fornieles and Kirstie Mcleod
  • And, with Kathryn Bigelow’s fantastic, ground-breaking success at last night’s Academy Awards, don’t forget the Birds Eye Film Festival starts today: nine days of celebration and support for international women filmmakers.
