You leave town tonight, right now.

And when you’re gone; you stay gone, or you be gone.

If you arc lucky enough to own a weekend pied-a-terre, you can give free rein to your interior design fantasies. At least, this was the way one young couple saw it when they bought their apartment in Poznan, a city in western Poland. The pair is from Poznan originally, but for years they have lived and worked in the capital, Warsaw. Their Warsaw-flat — their home during the week — is rather more conventional.

Frequent travel back and forth between the two cities led the couple to the decision

The most unlikely addition to the transport infrastructure of London is nearing completion in the East End. More about the Emirates Air Line, a cable car to link the Royal Albert Dock with Greenwich

The London skyline is becoming increasingly eclectic. The bulbous Gherkin (Foster + Partners), the towering Shard (RPBW) and the wind-turbine-topped, elongated-barcode that is the Strata tower (BFLS) will soon be joined by the Cheese Grater (RSHP), the Boomerang (Ian Simpson and Partners) and the Walkie-Talkie (RVA).

Aside from high-rise towers, there have been more eccentric and, in some cases, more loved additions that peek above the rooftops. The London Eye, at first implemented as a temporary attraction, has become one of the most recognisable modern additions to the capital’s silhouette. The Arcelor Mittal tower in the Olympic Park wriggles skywards

These tips will help you sink all the shorts ones.

So if you don’t want my advice, I understand. Joking aside, the reason I make most short putts is that I stick with some sensible fundamentals and never deviate from them. If you routinely miss the ones you should be making, my advice should help you, too.


The biggest thing I work on is

While rushing around town, I slip in for a quick 100-percent organic cold-pressed juice, and for those few moments of pure bliss, I feel completely rejuvenated. Choose this over coffee in the

Simon Osborne-Walker: Unlike some of my fellows, I hadn’t been hooked by the F-Type’s styling. Too tasteful, not aggressive enough for me. But it only took one symphonic roar from the F-Type’s engine to regress me to teenage wide-eyedness, as if I’d spied a Countach for the first time. And on the road, when the deployable rear wing servos into view as you hit 60, it really shows its colour. The drive is rapid and taut, but it’s also surprisingly comfortable on rougher surfaces and over speed bumps, even in its sportier Dynamic Mode. The base V6’s handling is almost
