We Are Addicted To London

“I like to visit London during off times, so crowds are not as bad. We love to walk the city, along the river, see the parks, in the cold, and hopefully clear invigorating conditions. I'll skip the rain, hampers our walking. I also have no desire to visit during warmer months.”

John Borthwick

“I love history and places Like Westminster Abbey, the Tower, Windsor, St. Paul's, and Hampton Court are very special to me. The view of Parliament from across the river I will never tire of. The look of Tower bridge is another I love to stare at. I love the pub culture. To drop in for a few pints as well as a meal is wonderful.”

Bella Jim

“What makes me proudest to be a Londoner is that it the most tolerant city I can think of - all lifestyles, looks, opinions, nationalities are just left to get on with their thing, provided it's not too antisocial! It's why I always smile when I see yet another poster on here anxiously enquiring about dress code.”

Rick Wick

“The only thing I dislike about London is not living there! Traveling there keeps me motivated.”

Ribeka Cruz

“I love walking through London, passing a historic Blue Plague building next to a modern one, and knowing that the next street will be totally different to the last.”

Lina Moni

“Standing on Waterloo Bridge looking up and down the river, but not towards the South Bank.”

“When I get to the tube station at LHR and hear the sound of the train coming, I know it could be no other place than London. The ticking sound of the black cabs, the tolling of the bell at the start of News at Six, hearing the chat of the people stocking shelves at Boots - all these combine to make an evocative picture.”
