Insider guides to London

I moved to London at 18 and spent over a decade being intoxicated by its creativity, excitement and grandeur. I still get a thrill from it now – as Pepys said, “If you’re bored of London, you’re bored of life”.

We live in Bristol now, but I think a part of my heart will forever be in London, and I return often to revisit old haunts and discover new ones.

On this page you’ll find all my London tips, frequently updated to keep it all fresh.

I have tons of London guides, including: London essentialsLondon’s most hipster hotels; the best views in London; the best afternoon teas in London; how to find the village feel in London; around the world in 7 London meals; the most Instagrammable places in London;  how to spend 24 hours in London like a Londoner; and a guide to London with toddlers.
