London Seaside

The London Seaside is really starting to take shape.   You can already take a peek in the seaside shops as you walk down the lanes leading you to the beach and stop for a jar along the way at Mickey Finn's Pub.

Take a motor boat out on the sea, or lay on the sand and sunbathe.  Or why not try your luck at some of the games of skill arriving today on the London City Pier.

We hope you will enjoy our homage to all things summer in the little Seaside coast where its always a balmy 74 degrees with a cool soft easterly breeze.

Visit the Seaside: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20Adult/106/170/23

Don't forget, to get you in the Spring mood on New Years Day, a Beach Party in London City.  Start looking for your best bikini or trunks.  It's going to be a lovely warm day.  Starts 1pm SL.

See you at New Years Eve party, Tuesday 1pm SL (9pm UK).

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.

Sit on Santa's lap

The adorable, slightly randy and alcoholic gentleman who has played Santa for us for the past four years in London City, has returned once again to spread (and drink) Christmas cheer to the visitors of the most popular estate in Second Life.

Would you sit on this mans lap?
Our very own Chris Kringle has been hard at it all year (making presents) and absolutely ready and willing to slip you a big surprise if you sit on his lap and tell him about all the naughty and nice things you have done this year.  The more detail you give, the bigger your surprise will be.

You can't really miss his grotto as its peppered with gin bottles and discarded mince pies and is located in the New User Area in London City.

Santa's sack is bulging with goodies, collect yours today!

Saturday:  Don't forget, its Glen Campbell's Country Christmas today from 12pm SL (8pm UK), the first of our Christmas Concerts.   Win 500L Best in Christmas!   Full programme of Christmas concerts will be published tomorrow.   Have a great weekend!
