|Head out for a bracing winter walk|
T is for Theatre - January is low season for the theatre world and its the time to find some bargains. You'll have to hunt for them but the following website may help. So time to pick your favourite musical or play and head to the West End of London for a magical experience. The sight Get into London Theatre is a great place to have a browse.

B is for Boat - An annual fixture that seems to have been etched upon me is the London Boat Show (mainly due to the wonderful cartoonist Giles who would often feature it in his annuals), held at the Excel Centre in the heart of the Docklands. Running from the 8th - 17th you can indulge yourself in all things marine and dream of taking that yacht around the Med or in the Caribbean.
W is for Walks - What better way to burn off the Christmas excesses than a winter stroll? If the weather allows then why not enjoy a bracing winter walk, taking in perhaps a visit to the pub for a warm winter brew. It's a reoccurring theme on Sketches but its the best way to really experience the UK and see our wonderful countryside. And if the weather is bright and crisp it will just add to the experience.

S is for Shopping - Sales, sales, sales. Walk around any high street or shopping centre and every shop will be tempting you to part with your cash. So why not turn them into a tourist experience? Selfridges is a great place to wonder, Harrods and Liberty also vie for your attention. They are as much a tourist attraction as a shop to spend your money in.
