    Where I was born and raised, and still my favourite place in the world. I recommend: cheap Vietnamese canteens on Kingsland Road, Broadway Market on a Saturday morning, the London Fields open lido, swimming in Hampstead Ponds, drinks in Hackney pubs,and totally avoiding south of the river – ha.

      Hmm. Now you have me curious about what’s on the south side of the river.

    I highly recommend visiting Richmond in South West London when you are visiting there next. It is essentially a village with what remains of a 15th Century Palace (where Elizabeth I died), boat trips on the river Thames, Markets, lots of parks and trails following the river, cute English pubs and a massive park with wild deer – my favourite place in London and where I lived for a year. Also, check out all the amazing cemeteries around London (see my below post)

    When you go to Hyde park, bear in mind that it’s huge, absolutely huge, and both Speaker’s Corner and Diana’s Fountain are corners of the park apart. It took me 2 hours to walk along the park to the place I wanted to be because I took the wrong tube. Parts of roads can be closed due to the many events London hosts, like cycling or marathon.

    Natural History museum is a photographer’s bliss, I could seriously have my wedding photo taken there.

      Yes, Hyde Park is ginormous! As my son is museum’d out, I hadn’t even considered the Natural History Museum, but I think you’re right that should be added to the list.

        It’s free-don’t like it, leave whenever you want. Sounds like a good deal to me.
