Biggest sporting cities in the World

Fans take their seats at the Nou Camp

London

Arguably the biggest sporting city in the world, Londoners show a real passion for sport and most are very knowledgeable on a wide variety of sports. The capital city is currently home to 6 Premier League clubs and the national football team regularly play at Wembley Stadium, which has a capacity of an impressive 90,000 fans, although the old Wembley was reported to hold (unofficially) 200,000! The city also boasts host to what is undoubtedly the biggest professional Tennis tournament in the world; Wimbledon might be one of four grand slams but it’s still the only tournament to be played on grass and we probably shouldn’t forget to mention the cool £27,000,000 prize money that’s up for grabs.

Rugby is huge in the city and Twickenham played host to the final of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. London club teams include Harlequins and Saracens, with London Irish currently playing in Reading. Running fanatics from all over the world flock to London during April for the London Marathon, which is open to both amateurs and professionals. Finally, you can’t talk about sport in London without mentioning one of the nation’s favourite sport, Cricket, and London is home to two of the finest grounds around, Lords and the Oval.

Tenerife – A guide to the land of eternal spring

Sun goes by the sea in Playas De Las Americas Sunset in Tenerife

The land of eternal spring – more commonly known as Tenerife, is the largest of the seven Canary Islands and has pleasant weather all year round; one of the many reasons why so many people flock to the island each year! I visited the Island for the first time back in June and had a truly amazing experience. I was shocked however to learn that it was only recently the Island had undergone a massive transformation and that not so long ago, Tenerife was associated with corruption and debauchery. It is clear to see that the island has come a long way since then and today it is home to some of the most picturesque beaches, luxurious hotels, jaw dropping landscapes and world class attractions; not to mention its fantastic nightlife.
