Here at VL Towers we’ve come up with one very simple resolution, and happily it doesn’t involve dieting, budgeting or making any life-changing decisions. It’s simply to make the most of London!

There’s nowhere better to try something new, learn a new skill or get your culture fix than the capital. We’ve come up with a few resolutions we hope you’ll want to keep:

Get Fit The Fun Way

Try a jogging tourIf you fancy getting in shape this year, there are plenty of alternatives to slogging it out at the gym.

Try a jogging tour to combine sightseeing with running. These tours take you on a guided run through some of London’s famous landmarks and routes are available for all fitness levels.

If you’ve been bitten by the Strictly Come Dancing bug, why not learn a few moves yourself at a London dance class? Ballet, belly dancing and ballroom are all covered.

Cycling is a great way to incorporate exercise into your daily routine. You’ll save money on transport costs and can get away with wearing fluorescent clothing!

Expand Your Horizons

BookDo you need a hobby? Do you have a list of things interests you’d love to develop if only you had the time? Then forget the housework and make learning your top priority in 2010.

Train your brain with a short course at City Lit in Covent Garden. The college has a huge range of courses available, from languages to massage to counselling skills.

Have you always fancied yourself on the West End stage? Don’t put yourself through the humiliation of a reality TV show, try a musical theatre course at City Academy! Here you’ll learn the skills of music, acting and dance and will get to perform such classics as the Joseph Mega Mix.

If you’re more of an introspective type, sign up to a free meditation course at Inner Space. There are three centres in London and topics include self esteem, relaxation and time management.

Everyone’s a paparazzi nowadays but make sure your photos stand out with a photography course at Shoot Experience. As well as learning valuable skills, you get to run around in groups photographing interesting parts of London.

Treat Yourself

Instead of cutting things out, we think you should do more. If you fancy an art exhibition, show or gig – just go!

Book a table at that restaurant you’ve always fancied trying, or pamper yourself at a spa – you deserve it!

Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? Tell us what you’re planning to do in London in 2010.

Looking for Love in London? Try Shoot Dating http://blog.visitlondon.com/2009/11/looking-for-love-in-london-try-shoot-dating/ http://blog.visitlondon.com/2009/11/looking-for-love-in-london-try-shoot-dating/#comments Wed, 25 Nov 2009 10:38:15 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=4231

Sexy singleton, 28, WLTM gorgeous, fun, creative guy w GSOH and similar hobbies: photography, visiting exciting London venues, meeting new people. Preferably ready for a challenge / competition? A passion for sexy slideshows a must.

Bag yourself a sexy photography fan at Shoot DatingWe know there are plenty of Lonely Hearts out there in London. If you’ve tried speed dating, online dating, silent dating and dating in the dark (really), we’re here to tell you about something brand new. And a lot more fun.

Funky creative photography collective Shoot Experience are holding their debut Shoot Dating event next weekend.

If you find small talk difficult under the pressure of a date, let the power of creativity play its hand at match-making. You don’t need any photographic experience to find love through a lens: just a little enthusiasm and some of cupid’s dark-room magic.

In teams of four (two boys, two girls), you’ll be given a clue and asked to photograph an answer. With each clue comes a new team, giving you the chance to meet eight different dates during the afternoon.

Shoot Dating is being held at the deliciously sexy underground Turkish baths in Bishopgate. Post photo-clue hunt, daters will return to The Bathhouse to watch a slideshow of the day’s images, and get the results of the competition for the most creative photos.

Tickets cost £20; alongside the afternoon of match-making fun and creativity, you also get a themed photobooth, lovers cupcakes, drink offers, prizes *and* free entry to The Bathhouse’s Rockabilly-themed night after the event for your cash.

At the end of the evening, daters who’ve ticked each others’ boxes (ahem) will be put in touch via email, leaving you to complete your own romantic adventures…

Sound like fun? Check out www.shootexperience.com/events for more details.
