No, not that one, think that would be the last on anyones list as it's likely to be the one that makes them kick the bucket..

Default Re: The Great British Bucket List.

I must admit, for me, these things tend to be a series of things....like a couple of pints and a ploughman's in the pub before going on to a Bristol Rovers match followed by a walk into town for a coffee in Carwardine's when 'proper' coffee was rare and then back home for an early pint and toasted sandwich in the pub with the Green'un football paper....followed by an evening in the pub later.

Or just a sudden decision to get a train somewhere and book into a B&B for the night. It would inevitably include a few beers and fish and chips on a blowy sea front or river or lake.

Or do something else with the bucket.

Yes, it's the most basic of pleasures that give life meaning. A long walk with the dog in an open park, followed by a beer in a simple country pub beats a ride on the London Eye any day.

6. To see the sights of Glasgow.
7. To take a train journey on the West Highland Line.
8. To visit all of William Marshal's castles (partially completed. Some are in France, but see 2 above).
9. To walk the Icknield Way.
10. To visit Waltham Abbey Church and pay my respects to the last Anglo-Saxon king.

I've done 15 on the DT list, although the only reason I've seen the Marathon live is because I used to live in a flat on the route. As a Londoner born and bred I'm not likely to go on a tourist bus ride.
