11 Leisure Areas in Great Britain

Leisure Areas in Blackpool
Blackpool Promenade
(2)
Victorian architecture at its best. Great for getting close to the sea.
Leisure Areas in London
Brockwell Lido
(2)
Heat is rare in England but when it got to 30 degrees I went to the pool at the Lido near me. After an hour of waiting, I finally got in. The water was cold but after a few minutes it was paradise. The pool is clean and there is plenty of room for swimming, even if it's crowded. The downside is that the showers are small and a little dirty.
Leisure Areas in Coniston
Coniston Boating Centre
(2)
As usual in all lakes (or most), one of the busiest points of Lake Coniston is the nautical club that offers a wide range of activities, almost all based on navigation, of course. The most requested is the tour in a small lake cruise, but I really think that small boats have the most charm. In the English lakes it is possible (which is not very common in Scotland) to rent small motor boats, apart from the typical to oars, allowing us to cover more surface of the lake. For sailing enthusiasts there are intensive courses and boats can be hired if you have experience, but it's pretty common to see boats overturned due to the people not have enough experience. There is also a coffee shop there with beautiful views of the lake. I recommend this club if you are looking to spend the day doing something a little out of what you usually do.
Leisure Areas in Southport
Silcock's Funland
(1)
If you want to relax and not do tourist things, the best you can do is to play in the fun machines in Silcock's. The business is also in nearby Blackpool, so it's not a novelty. The amusement arcades are right next to the Theater and Convention Center, and just two minutes from the Ocean Plaza mall.
Leisure Areas in Blackpool
North Pier
(1)
Blackpool has three piers representative of how important it was yesteryear. Of these three piers the North Pier was perhaps the most glamorous and prestigious. While the other two are overrun by amusement rides, this is perhaps the busiest of all the piers with beautiful coastal views of the city, the tower and even the Central Pier. At the entrance there are cafes and souvenir shops and at the other end there is the classic carousel (a very old one that takes us back to the Victorian era) and a theater. There are also psychics, fortune tellers and other such characters, one of the most famous is a lady of Romanian origin, Rosa Petulengro, who gives an exotic touch to the place. The North Pier is one of the symbols of this city and its presence reminds us of the excellence that it had in the past.
Leisure Areas in Blackpool
Central Pier
(1)
The Central Pier is packed with events, fairs and attractions, which makes it not the best place for a quiet walk. If anything stands out on this pier it is the gigantic wheel that makes this corner visible from long distances. To be fair, it is cheaper, more restful and relaxing to climb the famous tower of the city, and the views are just as good, so you might consider this part as "The Eye" but instead of in London in Blackpool. This wheel is literally over the sea, which makes the sensation most curious, and it is mounted in the rigging of a pirate ship. This pier marks the beginning of the most famous leisure area of ​​the city, known as "Fun Beach".
Leisure Areas in Blackpool
South Pier
(1)
The south jetty is an extension of the area known as the Pleasure Beach, a quieter place than the Central Pier, but with plenty of attractions, together with the building called "Castle of Sand" that has lots of fun things to do. This pier is possibly the least attractive, but was built to add prestige to the city, one of only three piers in the UK, and to increase the area of ​​Fun Beach. Found alongside this pier are the major casinos and amusement parks principal among which is the second largest roller coaster in Europe.
Leisure Areas in Larne
Ballygally Picnic Area
I have to admit that culinary tourism is incredible and trying the regional specialties in different countries should be included in every trip. But who doesn't feel like eating a ham sandwich by the sea on a sunny day? Unfortunately in Ireland, sunny days are rare, so after checking that there wasn't a cloud in the sky, we bought a loaf of bread (of remarkable quality in a country that doesn't eat bread), and found this beautiful place at the entrance of Ballygally (or Ballygalley).
Leisure Areas in London
The Glassbower
The Glassbower an ideal place for a perfect pint in Soho. After walking around, I'd suggest going there for a rest and a drink before dinner.

Orcs Nest
Orcs Nest is a small shop crammed to bursting with tabletop games of every kind. It has a wide selection of board games and expansions, as well many shelves of game books for starting your role playing group. It's the best shop of its kind in London that I've found so far. The prices seem to match what can be found elsewhere and online. If you are looking for a particular game I would call ahead and see if it is in stock, because in my experience what is on their website might not entirely reflect what's in-store.
