An independent study has revealed that the average price of hotels in Glasgow have risen in the region of 87% for 4 days comparing two weeks prior to the Commonwealth Games against four days starting the day after the opening ceremony.

Travellodge London Tower Bridge Review

Posted by on Sunday, April 28, 2013 In : Hotel Reviews 
As far as location versus cost in the city of London, this hotel is probably the best I have experienced, it sits a 2 minute walk from Tower Hill tube station and Tower Gateway DLR station, not to mention 2 of the biggest attractions in the capital, The Tower of London and Tower Bridge which are a mere 5 minute walk. 

As you would expect from a budget hotel chain the rooms are incredibly cheap considering the location, so if you're prepared to sacrifice a few creature comforts then it's the pe...

The Dark Side of the Grand National

Posted by on Monday, April 1, 2013 In : Horse Racing 
When I visited the Grand National Festival for the first time in 2011, there were a couple of things that struck me; the first thing was the enormity of the event, the buzz around the grandstands of Aintree Racecourse and in the city of Liverpool. The second thing that struck me was the animosity outside the course from animal rights protestors, call me naive but coming from not the most avid of race-goers, I simply had no idea how passionately against horseracing these groups were. Of course...

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is still over a year away, but here in Brazil, excitement and activity around the event continues to build at a fever pitch. Earlier fears that construction in the country was accident-plagued and slow-moving seem to have been put to rest, with the majority of venues and other infrastructure expected to be completed well in advance of summer 2014.

Every country has a sport you simply must check out while traveling. In between museum visits, city tours, and fine dining make sure you carve out time to take in a cricket or football game. This will take some serious planning ahead if you want to take in a popular sport or see a certain team. Make sure you research ticket information as soon as you decide on a trip.

Olympians vs Footballers

Posted by on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 In : Olympics 
This debate has probably been and gone, but thought I would give my pennies worth anyway considering my thoughts on the subject. 

I won’t harp on about how much we loved the Olympics, it was an amazing experience and one of the best things about it was those who hated the idea of the Olympics in London were well and truly converted by the end of the Games. I was lucky enough to be around London and Stratford when the Games were on, and it sounds like a cliché but it really was a special atm...

Athletics Hopes for Team GB at London 2012

Posted by on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 In : Olympics 
Great Britain surpassed everyone’s expectations in Beijing by finishing 4th overall winning 47 medals, including 19 gold. A fantastic achievement when you think 4 years earlier in Athens, Team GB came 10th overall with 30 medals, and in Sydney 2000 the team also finished 10th with a tally of 28 medals. In London, there is an official target of consolidating 4th place in the medals table with 48 podium finishes.

Possibly one of the major disappointments in Beijing was the lack of medals on th...
