Restaurant Londres : 10 adresses, 10 quartiers Oubliez la mauvaise réputation de la cuisine britannique en découvrant Londres et ses meilleures adresses culinaires d’un quartier à l’autre. Une façon gourmande de (re)visiter la capitale de la Grande-Bretagne. 1. 20 great UK walks with pubs, chosen by nature writers 1 Grassington, Yorkshire dales Length: 11 milesTime: 5½ hoursStart/finish: Grassington National Park Centre (Google map/OS Explorer OL2)Grade: ModerateRefuel: Craven Arms, Appletreewick Anyone who grows up in or around the Yorkshire dales ends up carrying it with them. There’s something about the crumpled-duvet landscapes of emerald field and heathery fell, about encountering its sudden, Shire-like valleys threaded with muscular peat rivers, about stumbling across a ruined abbey at dusk or drinking well-earned beers by pub fires that forever sticks in the head and the heart. One of the national park’s greatest pubs has to be the Craven Arms at Appletreewick (mains from £8.95).

Piccadilly Circus The Circus lies at the intersection of five main roads: Regent Street, Shaftesbury Avenue, Piccadilly Street, Covent Street and Haymarket. It was created by John Nash as part of the future King George IV's plan to connect Carlton House - where the Prince Regent resided - with Regent's Park. The creation of Shaftesbury Avenue in 1885 turned the plaza into a busy traffic junction.

London with kids You have already covered the classics – from the Tower of London to the dinosaurs of the Natural History Museum, feeding countless squirrels on the way. What else to do with kids in London? Here are a few ideas. Scroll downs for themes: afternoon tea, Harry Potter, fun restaurants, Paddington, rainy days… Two hoards and one unknown Viking ruler Ian Richardson, Portable Antiquities and Treasure, British Museum The saying goes that one waits an eternity for a London bus to arrive, only for two to eventually show up at the same time.

London’s oldest restaurant was known for its porter, pies and oysters when it opened more than 200 years ago.

Faroe Islands fit cameras to sheep to create Google Street View Living across 18 tiny sub-polar islands in the north Atlantic, Faroe islanders are used to working in difficult conditions. So tired of waiting for Google Street View to come and map the roads, causeways and bridges of the archipelago, a team has set up its own mapping project – Sheep View 360. With the help of a local shepherd and a specially built harness built by a fellow islander, Durita Dahl Andreassen of Visit Faroe Islands has fitted five of the island’s sheep with a 360-degree camera. As the sheep walk and graze around the island, the pictures are sent back to Andreassen with GPS co-ordinates, which she then uploads to Google Street View. “Here in the Faroe Islands we have to do things our way,” says Andreassen.
