Something a bit different in London

 article about Something a bit different in London
Many people will make their way to the capital for parties and nights out. There are so many options of things to do and people are always looking for the unusual. While ideas such as the London Eye are now well known, there are still a few gems to explore.

A drink with a difference: The Ice Bar, Heddon Street
The Ice Bar on Heddon Street is in the food quarter off of Regent Street. This is a brilliant location as well as a great experience. At the beginning of your 40 minute experience, you are given a designer cape and gloves to keep you warm. The walls, bar, tables and even your own personal glass are made from crystal clear Torne River ice, which is harvested from the pristine winter wonderland of Jukkasjärvi in Northern Sweden. The Ice Bar is the UK's only permanent bar made of ice and is kept at -5°C all year round. There are often cocktail, champagne and dining experience offers available.

An adrenaline rush for the brave: Walk on top of the O2
For an adrenaline and something that you will really remember, nothing will beat a walk on top of the O2. There is an app you can download beforehand so you can have a look at the skyline in advance. This is really recommended and you will get so much more from your experience after a bit of preparation. There are different tours to choose from. The ‘Original' is a day climb. When clear, you can see up to 15 miles away. With the ‘Sunset' climb, you will ascend as the sun descends - see London against the backdrop of an auburn sky. On the ‘Twilight' Experience, the climb is in the dark and you will see the bright city lights laid out before you, twinkling in the night sky. There is also the option of selecting a group tour for groups of up to 30 people. With this booking you will enjoy a personalized experience with just your group and a guide to yourselves.

It has a mix of oak panelling, exposed brickwork, plain white walls and 1950s Danish leather sofas. There are a selection of courses to choose from.

It really is just like playing some of the best courses in the world.
