St Katharine's Dock is always nice - just by the Tower. Slightly easier to get to than out by the Excel - and smaller and, imo, prettier.

I also very much like the Nordic Cafe and Scandinavian Kitchen, but I imagine cafes and food stores aren't exactly the sort of thing that you need :-)

I got about 55% for my own one but 85% for my mothers and I've not been there for years :-)

I just used one from the link that was posted, thank you to whoever posted it. Got me out of a bind on Friday when my plans went wrong

Have always done coastal geography - we'll be doing the second topic this year.  Mainly to give a contrasting location from our own coastal city. Have run very successful fieldwork to Hengistbury Head for a number of years now - the key is to find the right location.  Happy to share my Dropbox folder with you if you get in touch.

I'll stay with my Pub and park response on Twitter, would also add:

Cabinet War Rooms
The old docks around the Excel Centre
I also enjoy walking around the City of London at the weekend - imagining I'm in a post-apocalyptic zombie movie as no one is around and nothing is open.

There are also a load of parks that are fantastic - I risk assessed them all for Mission:Explore London - there's a fantastic church yard behind the Science Museum.

Enter a postcode and it gives you questions about the area to guess at. Quite an interesting idea - might be a fun thing to do in class.

Having done my teacher training in Hull for a year, along time ago, I'd go for the Land of Green Ginger and a pint in the George Hotel, a performance at Hull Truck and then the Deep (or a film at the library art cinema if they still do them)

Will pay a visit in 2017 - though I'll be back earlier, in November to do a session at the University :)

I'm bit confused about these choices for a 'best of London'.

But would gladly contribute to a best of Hull even though most of my choices probably don't exist post 1977!

Polar Bear on Springbank?
