London. I love it! Like every city in the World, there are good points and bad, but it's always been the place I want to live. I hope to show you the places I get up to and to give you my feelings about my favourite spots in the capital rather than the usual tips you can find in every guidebook ever written.
The square mile known as The City of London is the financial centre of this sprawling Capital, and everything beyond this is a collection of villages which, despite having now merged together, all have a very distinct personality. I live in Edmonton in North London and I have a separate page for this area.
In the centre there's lots to see (and spend your money on!) but there are also cheaper alternatives...after all, I live and work here and I can't afford to pay tourist prices all the time. I don't often stay in hotels, so this page is mainly designed to show you how I live my life here in London.
I love the centre of London for it's architecture, shopping and nightlife, and I'm very lucky to work right in the heart of things on Trafalgar Square. I never take it for granted as it's an inspirational area of London, but of course there are others to check out.
I have included quite a few restaurant tips and I have been very picky about the restaurants that make the grade. These are my absolute favourite places to eat and although these may not all be the cheapest places in the world they are definitely worth a visit if you can.
So, this is London according to a lifelong native. I hope my page helps you to make the most of your trip to my hometown.
