London Charisma

''When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."-Samuel Johnson''


Outdoor Concert at London Pleasure Gardens

There is always something to do in London,  that it just seems impossible to have seen it all. I came across this video by Alfred Marroquin which showcases London's charisma and charm, I couldn't keep it to myself. London  is not just the touristy hotspots but the people interaction, shopping, the street arts and performers and of course the food. London is one the most captivating cities in the world whether you are a local or a tourist, you cannot help but be mesmerised by the charisma and passion for city living and hanging out with all those that tell stories about very brick and tile that form building blocks for the areas they live in. It doesnt matter if you have lived in London since you were born or whether you have been here 5-10 years, I love that you can walk by the same corner 5-10 times and still be able to discover something new and just the fact that things change so much here even when not expect or required. There are endless hidden treasures. I just love how Alfred captured the essence of this beautiful city, you can help but be a little proud of calling it home...

Now, although this weekend I am opting for a change of scenery and going to Newcastle to see the Angel of the North with Travese 14. I will leave you with this video to inspire your exploring if you are in London this weekend. Take care of the city while I am away....

  2. As a born and bred Londoner, I'm biased, but I think it's an incredible city and you can never get bored. Mind you, Newcastle is great fun too! Have a fab time.

  3. I adore London, I am moving down later in the year, so I can't wait to see it from the perspective of a 'local' and see if it changes my opinion of it!

  4. I live in London and miss the greenness of the north I have to say. Everywhere is just so busy all of the time, though there is always an atmosphere, something to do and so on...

  11. It's been years since I've been to London, but this video makes me want to go NOW! Love the music in the video. I often complain about living in a big city like L.A., but like London, one of the advantages of big city living is that you never run out of things to do or new places to discover. Great post!
