Myths of London with Lord Clifford Hume
London Top Sights
"Hello! My name is Clifford Hume, or to give my full title – Lord Clifford Hume of Hougun Manor. My title is an ancient manorial one and honourific and dates back to the Domesday Book in 1087. I have been guiding people around London for over 25 years and have specialised in the pageantry of our royal and political capital. My walking tours take in the normal sights of this wonderful city but I like to show tourists – and Londoners – the London that is off-the-beaten track. Today we are going to have a little true or false game all about some of the stranger aspects of this world city. There are lots of myths and misinformation associated with all parts of the metropolis and there are even tour guides who perpetrate these myths! So, we are going to look at ten things and you can tell me if they are true or false! From obscure laws to royal legends. Ready?"

The traditions of Finnish lifestyle go back hundreds of years. In the rush and crush of modern life, the rarities are what we value most, such as space, quiet and time. One could even say that Finnish people knew mindfulness and slow travel before they became global megatrends. Each Finnish region has its own unique history and traditions, but the close relationship to nature is what connects it all. Join Visit Finland’s certified coach Terhi Bunders for a moment of calm through a mindful practice.
Flanders Chocolate Tasting
It’s an impossible task to showcase one particular brand of chocolate in our region amongst its array of multi-talented chocolatiers. So, we’ve chosen to present you with a taste sensation from one of our favourite companies, Bitter Sweet, hailing from the gorgeous but perhaps lesser-known, university city of Leuven. Their passion for chocolate with a modern edge, make their creations simply too good to miss. Chocolate lovers can easily find them just a few metres from Leuven’s magnificent Town Hall and the Grote Markt, in the centre of the city.
So, if you would like to taste something different and also get your taste-buds and your connections talking, join us at the VISITFLANDERS chocolate experience. The hardest thing will be the choice you will have to make and there is plenty to enjoy! Whether it is choosing a popular Flemish dessert encased into a chocolate, so delicious that’s why they named it “Heroin” or choosing the aptly named “Cloud Nine” to emulate your senses after tasting it, we leave it to you to decide. Or perhaps you might opt for cute and quirky Robotski, with notes of green sencha tea, offering a sensational flavour. Whichever chocolate you go for, we hope it will enthuse your inspiration in Flanders as a sweet city break!
