Our reporter Mariya Grinina meets the co-founder to speak about London’s most unusual members’ club. Reporter, Producer: Mariya Grinina | Sub-editor: Joseph Carey Bermondsey Arts Club has a rather unusual setting.

I had time to visit all of them during the two years I have been living in London for. The ones on the list are essentially in my personal top three, which I strongly recommend visiting. Reporter: Adrian Vasilescu | Sub-Editor: Joseph Carrey Richmond Park The park is open to cars and cyclists. So you can enjoy a relaxing joyride or feel the wind blowing towards you as you cycle on the designated paths. When I visited the park, a cyclist, Leo, happened to be ‘chilling’ on the side of the road. “Oh, I’m just catching my breath”, he said. He cycles in Richmond Park quite often: “At least once a week”, he s
