Leisure guides
 
 

4 stars Whats-on-guide - UK guide to leisure time. Massive use of Flash, but no real point once you get the info you require. The Flash graphics detract from the search boxes and can be annoying. The info you get is very good, however, and extensive. Site Guide

3 stars Whatsonwhen - Listings for the UK and beyond. Search by country, city, date to find what you want from wide range of topics. Details are fine, except no contact address or telephone number are given. Site Guide

3 stars Event Selector - Search for event in your area. Slightly annoying, difficult to get listings for anything other than today. Otherwise, it is very well laid out and easy to find the right section to search. Site Guide

3 stars KidsNET - Information about family days out. Fairly London-dominated resource to find things to do. Cinema listings are countrywide, but leisure and sports are just for the capital. Site Guide
