London: an illustrated life-long love affair

Home-05

There are lots of cities I love to visit, a few I could happily live in for a year or two but none that, to me, compare to London.

It’s a city that has everything. Amazing archicture, old and new. Eateries at every level, from Michelin-starred restaurants to greasy spoons. An unbelievable array of theatres, with enough fantastic performances to visit every week (or, er, more often <cough>). Shopping has everything to offer from Harrods to market stalls. There are green spaces everywhere. Cinema. Art. It’s all here … 

There are amazing sights tucked away in the most unlikely corners. It’s a brilliant place to cycle. And there are so many people, from every corner of the world, you have an almost infinite choice of friends.

I feel incredibly privileged to live here, especially somewhere we can easily walk home from the West End.

We half-joke that we bought a view with an apartment attached. I could post dozens of these, but will restrain myself …
