London City - Seaside





On Sunday, CoffeeQueen, Landa and me, went to the London City Pier for an adventure on the rollercoaster, a paddle in the water and a donut (or two).


The seaside in London City West, is a great place to chill-out and perhaps to escape the busy city life of our main region London City.


You can take a boat out on the water, or ride around the seaside and surrounding areas on a nifty Butlins style bike with your friends.


So next time, you want a break from it, head to London City West and explore the new seaside area and enjoy a free ice cream on the pier, but watch out for the gulls.

Bring back the Beach



One of the things we missed the most from the long history of London City, is the Pier and Beach.

In a recent survey of visitors, this was the top 'lost' attraction that they said they would like to see resurrected.

Using some clever jiggery pokery, master builder Mr Billy Arentire has identified a great spot of land on London City North region along the the South end of the sim, where the pier and beach will fit in nicely.

Now would be a great time to check out your inventory for swimwear, we're hoping to have the build finished in time for the Bank Holiday Weekend!

Great White Shark - Lydia Tracking Station



A Great White Shark will soon be in British waters and you can monitor her route towards the English coast at London Seaside.

News sources report "Great White shark Lydia continues crossing the mid-Atlantic, heading towards the United Kingdom. First caught and tagged with a tracking device off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida, in March 2013 a great white shark nicknamed Lydia has travelled more than half way across the Atlantic. Her last satellite check-in had her 745 miles off the Irish coast."

"Lydia has meandered up the U.S. East Coast to Nova Scotia, Canada following a rich chain of aquatic life that includes sea lions before turning east for Europe. Lydia is one of the few female great white sharks to be tagged. She is thought to be in her early twenties and may be pregnant. If she enters the Mediterranean, she may swim to a known shark birthing area near Turkey."


Now you can track Lydia's progress across the Atlantic Ocean as she heads towards the UK by visiting the 'Lydia Tracking Station' at the London City Seaside.


We continue to monitor the waters off the coast of London City and will report the sightings as they happen.
