SW London for the best part of 35 years - it is near enough to the centre of London but has a little bit of a country feel.
Best London Attraction
The Sky Roof Garden is amazing and when friends visit London I always aim to take them on a visit, the 360 views are fantastic
Place to live in London
Would choose Buckingham Palace as it has so much history, amazing architecture,and the walls have a few stories.
Favourite London Restaurant ....
A hard one, Blue Elephant Thai Restaurant that was in Fulham for many years was always on the list but sadly lost to development - nowadays tend to do dinner parties at home rather than eat out.
Getting around London....
Having lived in London for 40 years I suppose I know most of it and would recommend walking as much as possible and if not would go by bus, taxi, tube.
Dislike about London
Bad manners, it seems to be on the increase and ranges from spitting, litter dropping etc etc
Borough Market is a rather secret gem in London - if you are looking for food that is off the usual radar this is your place to head.
Best Theatre Show
Went to see On Your Feet at the London Colisuem, it is the life story of Gloria Estefan, it was a real feel good show that had all the ingredients of a good night out.
Place to Stay
The Dorchester is style and class in abundance, I spent seven years at the hotel from 1990 to 1997 and in all honesty it was the best seven years of my proffesional life.
Having lived in London for 40 years it has been like no other time.
I finished working in the city in March more or less on the day of the first lockdown so have not experienced the atmosphere as it was at the start of lockdown but from all accounts it is very eerie.
In SW London one of the benefits is less pollution and that is a big plus that helps us all but of course the city needs traffic etc to keep alive.
