Have you ever wanted to be able to fly? Well now you can, at the Gorilla Circus Flying Trapeze School.

During a two-hour class at one of their venues in Regents Park or Hyde Park, you’ll be harnessed up and taught the basics of trapeze – from hanging upside down to full-on mid-air backflips (don’t worry, there’s a huge net to catch you if you fall). And at the end – if you’ve grasped the nitty-gritties – you’ll be able to attempt the more advanced trick of being caught by an instructor on a separate swinging bar.

Cruise down the canal



A post shared by Maraka Sampford (@msampford) on

Forget the tube – a narrowboat ride down London’s waterways is a much more relaxing way to see the city. The route runs between Camden Lock and Little Venice, and even travels through London Zoo. Have your camera at the ready!

Sleep with the lions



A post shared by Kellie Baldwin (@kellielbaldwin) on

Nine private lodges sit at the heart of London Zoo’s Land of the Lions enclosure, each themed to a different animal found in India’s Gir Forest. Book a night’s stay here and get two days’ entry to the zoo, after-hour tours and dinner and breakfast included.

Dip into Hampstead Heath

Open all year round, the Hampstead Heath bathing ponds are ideal for cooling down on a warm, sunny day. There are separate men’s, ladies and mixed ponds, but make sure to get there early to grab a spot on the grass for sunbathing – they can get busy.
