Summer in The City




Hang on tight.  We are on the home stretch.  Not much longer 'til the weekend.

Coming up over the next few weeks in London City, the summer shows continue with Bob Marley, UB40, John Holt and Simply Red.  So lively up yourself as summer gets into full swing!

Wet and Windy



It's going to be a pretty horrid weather week in old Blighty.  Just as we'd all got our RL shorts out, here comes the rain again!

But no matter, Summer is in full swing in the City, so play the game in your undies and just put the central heating on and immerse yourself in London City sunshine.

Here Comes The Sun...



The great British Summer.   It's cloudy and miserable for months, and just when you think Summer is cancelled, it arrives with a vengeance. 

Brits will be baking this week as temperatures soar.  So check out the new summer fashions whilst you cool your heels in the pool.

The ice cream van will be along shortly.

Whatever you're doing, enjoy yourself and make hay while the sun shines.

Springtime in London City



London City West

It was the best fun since Christmas, arguably event better!  There was no need to buy presents or to visit long lost relatives usually only wheeled out for weddings and funerals.

But here in the UK, four days of rest and relaxation with the odd tipple here and there, has finally come to an end :(

Looking on the bright side, the clocks moved forward on Sunday morning and we gained another hour of daylight as we were propelled into Springtime. It seems amazing that in January we were adjusting to night time starting at just after 4pm, whereas today, dusk will be at 8.03pm

And for many people, this is just a 4 day working week, so not long to wait until the next weekend!

Looking forward, there is another Bank Holiday at the end of April and by then, dusk will be at 9.10pm and here London City SL, the first of the beach parties is just around the corner!

Not long until Spring



If you live in the UK or other parts of Europe, there is every chance that now we have all endured another Christmas, that you're probably getting a little fed up with winter and you are looking forward to a bit more daylight and some warmer days.

January is the usual drag, but as we are about to enter February, it means that Spring is only a month away.

Thankfully Spring has already sprung in London City, so you can immerse yourself  in bright surroundings which is especially handy when it is a little gloomy outside your RL window.



Meanwhile back in real life, it is still dark at around 4.30pm, but not for long!  A month from now Sunset will have crept back to 5.30pm and will steadily increase by a few minutes each day.

Early in March it increases to 6pm and in April 8pm!

So you see, it really isn't long to wait. Spring is just around the corner.

If you fancy kitting yourself out for the new season, many of the stores in London City are already getting their spring/summer wear out on sale.  Every year, just like real life, we need essential new items such as sunglasses, shorts and flip-flops.   Now is a good time to browse for new ideas!

The great British Summer.   Cold sunny days, boiling hot rainy days.  You would never want to trade it for a stable climate would you?

In RL don't forget to pack along with your picnic, a brolly, raincoat and wellies, the Summer is finally here.

This year we have gone all tropical in Second Life and it is sand sea and surf all the way, so all you need is some beach wear and a margarita!

Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside




We've juggled some bits around in London City just to keep you on your toes...

We recently reclassified London City3 from Adult to Moderate, so that we can accommodate the ever expanding community following that London City Estate enjoys.   From 1st January 'The Crown Pub' will focus on daily events with more moderate content and a better community atmosphere.  The Crown will be led by Elle and Muse, so look out for their opening event coming in just a few days.

With the ending of the Christmas Season, our Festive Region, Belgravia has come to a close  until next year.   In the meantime we have just upgraded the capacity of our region 'London Adult' so it can offer Adult themes in a dedicated region.

Although not yet completed, this region is full steam ahead to the Summer and has a pier with amusements and has a beautiful sandy coast line.  This region will also have clubs and stores.


Work on 'London Adult' region is on going, we already have the world famous London Revuebar completed and it is up and running.  Revuebar replaces the themes previously only offered in 'The Crown Pub' in London City3.

For those of you wondering where Mickey Finn's pub is... It will arrive in "London Adult" later today.   Also, we're looking forward to seeing your saucy summer postcards from this region!

We hope you will like the changes we are making as the estate evolves.   We are committed to being  consumer led, offering the services that our many thousands of visitors express a need for.
