5 Awesome Things I Love About London

Things I Love About London

In a couple of days I’m heading to London. I used to be quite the regular, popping down on the train every month or so, but it’s been an absolute age since I’ve seen the city lights properly. In fact I think it’s been years since I explored properly instead of diving in for a gig and heading home straight afterwards. We have some plans carved in stone, but mostly I’m looking forward to the simple things I love about London.

// Being in a city of dreams. I have always, always felt the pull of a big city and London is one of those places that makes you feel like you can do anything. It’s not quite up there with the levels of New York for inspiration, but it’s pretty close. The street art, bustling people, honking cars and towering office blocks, the smell of the smoke… I don’t know what it is, but it makes me feel like I’m breathing in fresh city air. As stupid as that sounds!

// Getting around is quick and easy. You can just walk everywhere… and if not it’s just a few tube stops away. I know the underground isn’t the most reliable method of transport for Londoners, but when you live up north with no car, it feels like a blessing to be able to hop on the tube and never even have to look at a bus.

// No one cares. No one cares what you’re wearing, if you’re filming something or taking outfit photos on the street. They’ve seen it all in a city full of tourists and they’re busy with their own lives. For such an insanely busy place, you can be almost invisible.

// It’s stuffed full of culture. Being one of the most diverse cities in the world, you always have the opportunity to experience something new whether it’s music, fashion, food or art. There’s always a market, a craft fair or an exhibition on.

// At night, the city comes to life. Taking a walk along the Golden Jubilee Bridge after dark and taking in the incredible city lights is definitely one of my favourite things I love about London… and one of my absolute most favourite things to do, period. I can’t resist a city skyline, especially at night with everything light up in incredible colours.
