London is about 2 hours East of where i live (in Burlington)...my wife worked in London for a semester last year (at Western), and i had a chance to check out the local spots, albeit during the early part of winter (see outdoor thread in this section of MAS for snow-covered pics). Also had a chance to skate at the closest indoor place in St. Thomas (unfortunately not worth checking out...see indoor thread).

Peace.

ya powell st thomas aint worth a shit. too bad to, i heard it was great till it got bought by a bmx groupe. but theres plans to build a new one in london and to expand the one at the barracks, a bowl being one of the ideas. the problem with london is tha've been to concerned with small parks(we have6)' rather than one big one. i havnt been to waterdown heard there parks good, i skate tillsonberg good park never too crowded and super smoooooooth. and cambridge looks promising for this summer.great little skateshop in town too.

Shane, like Alan " The Reaney Family " said there's lots of parks up this neck of the woods, Water down , bulington and so on

Our door in the Uk was always open to any one who needed a stop over on a skate trip so if you fancey a skate day / weekend up this way you have a place to rest your acing skate bones . I am sure Alan Mike and the boys would be more than happy to give you a tour .
