Just a stone’s throw away from the Southbank and smack right next to Borough Market, London Bridge is a very exciting and vibrant part of London and a place where I have a lot of emotional investment being the sight of a number of meetings and dates over the year.

The first time I met my American Friend was at London Bridge.

The next stop up from Liverpool Street on the Central Line, Bank is in the heart of the city. Despite this it is not a very exciting part of London.

Scene of where all the movie premieres happen, Leicester Square is a real tourist trap that is always thick with hustle and bustle.

Harlesden is a scary and run down part of North West London near Wembley. It is home to a McVities factory and as a result has a constant whiff of biscuits in the air.

Originally this was where the Mean Fiddler was situated and for years the offices were situated at the building long after the venue portion had closed.

Briefly I lived there in my first experience of staying in London. Initially intimidating the place soon calmed down to me even though there felt like there was a constant/consistent degree of threat in the air.

Paddington is situated in North London and is famous for its green and the police station. Many of the shops along the main road have Islamic names on their hoardings and it is only a stones throw away from more affluent areas such as Warwick Avenue and Maida Vale. It is hectic but not vibrant.

Maida Vale is a gorgeous area of North London that is the location of many beautiful large houses and is most famous for its near street long BBC recording studios.
