Travel Agenda: Autumn Walking Week; Thames Revival weekend; New York; The One Room Hotel
Saturday 11 September 2010
Today: Autumn Walking Week begins on Jersey, with a free programme of countryside, coastal and history walks led by experienced island guides (Jersey.com). And in the capital, The Thames Revival weekend gets underway in St Katherine Docks with classic boats, live music, vintage fashion, Thames crayfish stalls and more (thamesrevival.com).
This week: Experience New York in an entirely new way. The Ride is a souped-up interactive bus tour of Manhattan that launches on Thursday and enhances Midtown's landmarks with comedians, actors and audio/visual fripperies (experience theride.com).
In the diary: Put in a bid for a night in The One Room Hotel. As part of the London Design Festival, the East End menswear emporium Hostem has created an onsite hotel suite (from 17-26 September) with a bed salvaged from an 18th-century Swedish dresser. If you're unsuccessful, the room is open as an exhibition during the day (theoneroomhotel.co.uk).
