London Challenge

The London Challenge is just a bit of fun and should be treated like a Treasure hunt. There is no prize at stake - unless you decide to compete against your friends or family. Decide what task to do, then get started. Try to complete as many of these tasks as you can during the day. Then spend the evening relaxing with friends and family, enjoying a night in one of the many London Theatres or a meal in one of London's best restaurants, perhaps even dining at a Celebrity Chef's restaurant.
