Bee's town (London)

the women's ponds on hampstead heath - the most tranquil spot in the world

columbia road flower market on a sunny sunday

the everyman cinema, hampstead (then, and now)

the charity shops on marylebone high street (great for bargains, and a fab oxfam books too)

konditor and cook (especially the cornwall road one at waterloo) - yummy

the great hall at the british museum - lovely memories of being a kid and charging about, and now i take izzy there to do the same

st. pancras station - an architectural gem

the NFT - the south bank always gives me a special feeling - like i'm 7 years old all over again and off to see the wizard of oz with my dad

tate modern - very special - i love the turbine hall, the marc rothko room and the wonderful shops

libertys - the loveliest department store in the world, even during the january sales

the beergarden at the spaniards inn, hampstead - a wonderful spot to while away those summer afternoons

the parkland walk from finsbury park to queens wood - a very special walk, and a newly discovered london fave

my little holborn/russell square walk, which takes in 3 favourite spots: corams fields (for the animals) lambs conduit street (for the glorious persephone books) and the cafe at the mary ward centre in queens square (lovely and cheap and next to the october gallery - a bonus!)

rasa in stoke newington - my favourite indian restaurant - they even have a storytelling evening!

the top of kite hill, hampstead heath, on a blustery autumn day
