For there is in London

I’ve lived in London and its environs for a large portion of my adult life.  And still this city never ceases to delight – in the quotidian details that are nonetheless classical and often enigmatic to someone not well studied in English history (like me, unfortunately).  One of the strangest places – a twenty minute journey from our house in Kew - is Southbank.  When I first arrived here it was dreary and certainly not much of a destination in itself, despite the National and Hayward.  Today it’s like a hive of commerce and circus of creative activity - quite a transformation.  In fact, with the Eye, it’s now achieved iconic status.
