Self-isolation activities for adults

During this time of self-isolation and social distancing, why not turn to the internet to learn a new skill, get fit or immerse yourself in something completely new. You can visit a museum, go to the opera, theatre and even travel from your own armchair. (Please copy any link you are interested into your web browser).
