London City Guide 2

The GherkinIt takes two to capture the huge and exhilarating city of London, so Jonathan Atherton and Megan McCormick share the billing as they try to encompass all that Britain’s capital has to offer.

Megan kicks off at the biggest Ferris wheel in the world, The London Eye, while just five minutes walk away, Jonathan has the first of two encounters with the Queen at the royal pageantry of the Trooping of the Colour. But they soon head off in different directions. Jonathan explores the colourful east end markets and the drama of the British Museum. Megan finds new architecture amongst the medieval streets of The City.

Meanwhile, Jonathan discovers a stunning marble Hindu temple in the suburbia of Neasdon and Megan even tries out her Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre. There’s even some good food at the ancient Borough Market, though Megan’s English fried breakfast and Jonathan’s jellied eels leave a lot to be desired but they both enjoy the nightlife of Soho. And while Jonathan hobnobs with the great and the good at Harrods and Royal Ascot, where he encounters Her Majesty once again, Megan has a flutter on the greyhounds at Walthamstow racetrack.

From the markets of Camden to Speakers Corner in Hyde Park; from the glory of Hampton Court, Kew Gardens and the Royal Naval College at Greenwich to the peace of Highgate Cemetery and the backwaters of the canals or even a personal tour of the Houses of Parliament, the London City Guide 2 offers endless surprises that express the diversity of one of the world’s most exciting cities.
