The Red Bull Soapbox Race is a car race with a difference — there are no engines in this one, no souped-up turbos, and no aerodynamic wind-tunnel rockets — all of the cars in this race are made by amateurs in their sheds and garages.

Each machine is fuelled by nothing but gravity, courage (maybe a bit too much courage!), and a big hefty push from their mates at the starting line, and some furious Fred Flintstone-style peddling to the finish line.

Some drivers clearly want to win the race, whilst others just come along to show off the craziest contraption you've ever seen in your life. Some of them will get to the bottom of the hill, whilst others are fortunate if they even make it off the starting line! But you can be sure that every race will be entertaining, with plenty of crashes, hairy moments and laughs.

Admin – “The official website says it's sold out, and Ticketmaster says they're sold out as well... so unfortunately it looks like you're out of luck”

Craig’s review of the cable car I don't like heights. My problem with heights is this: they are always too high. Before you try and ride the cable car take a walk along the river and stare up at it for a second. You get quite a nice view of industrial London by The O2. You can see the factories and cranes… continued
Craig’s review of Tower of London A bit of bad weather is good. If you can't visit the Tower of London at night then try and come here when it's wet. And I mean proper wet: getting drenched wet. Rain like grey paint that clears the crowds and shows you what it was like 1,000 years ago when the only visitors… continued
Craig’s review of London Zoo If you want to do London Zoo properly then you'll be walking around for 4-5 hours so you need to take it slow, because it's a proper zoo: there are no rides, no rollercoasters, no dolphins doing tricks with the kids. You just stand in front of the cages trying to find the an… continued
Craig’s review of Madame Tussauds Madame Tussauds is something that Londoners are happy to leave to the tourists.

I honestly don… continued
