Lead Marshal Antonio is back at the front this Sunday to take us on a gentle Snail Stroll through the London grid.Â If you want to play a game of chess after the skate don’t forget to collect the pieces along the way: get your king and queen from Buckingham palace, your bishops from Lambeth palace, your knights atÂ Horse Guard, and your rooks atÂ Westminster palace. Oh, and as for pawns, they apparently represent armed peasants or pikemen, so you can probably grab a few of your fellow skaters – just wait until we are back at the park please!
