I love that London is home to me; it is an amazing city. Layers of recent and not-so-recent history sitting together quite contentedly.
I love seeing glimpses of old London; gargoyles when you look up in Piccadilly; typography from an old shopfront; Big Ben.
I also love the new; the Brutalist architecture of the Worlds End Estate; walking to the Young Vic Theatre from Waterloo; people-watching in Ladbroke Grove.
