Football season is almost over for the Nordic football teams and so is our this months poll and even though Premier League is still going for quite a while the results are already in. The people have voted and according to you readers, Liverpool wins Premier League this year! But it was a close call. With 21% Manchester United came in second after Liverpools 25%. Third was Chelsea with 20%. And I am sorry to tell you Gary, but only two people believed Sunderland would win this year. Let’s see if our readers are right.
This months poll will be dedicated to the British culture scene. We’ve got a few competitions going on like winning a year pass to the Stockholm Film Festival or movie tickets to In the Loop and for those who’d rather just go to Britain the blog is now loaded with tips like a tour round Harry Potters world or best places to go to in Sherlock Holmes Cornwall.

In the Loop is a political satire and a spin-off on the popular TV-series ‘In the Thick of it’. Everything takes a wrong turn for British minister Simon Foster when he get’s misinterpreted by media. A misinterpretation that leads to the beginning of a tough political battle between American and British governments.
The movie has Swedish premiere on October 30 in Stockholm, Göteborg, Uppsala, Lund and Malmö. Now you can win tickets to see the movie in one of those cities. All you have to do is answer a few questions on our competition site.

Glimpses of London
The movie is set in Washington, USA and London, England. In the movie you get glimpses of both Big Ben, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and 10 Downing Street. All of them important British landmarks.
And what better time to visit London then now, when the pound is still so low? Why not do a In the Loop-tour round London when your there? Take the underground to Embankment station. From there you can walk along the River Thames to 10 Downing Street. This is also a perfect opportunity to see the London Eye from afar. From 10 Downing Street, walk to Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament, cross the Parliament Bridge to South Bank. On the bridge you also have a great view of the Houses of Parliament. Then walk through the park to the London Eye. Oyster Cards for the underground or tickets to the London Eye can be bought here.
If you’ve still got time to spare, London has a lot more to offer. Please visit our destination guide to London for more tips on what to do when you’re there.
