From Heathrow’s tarmac to “the Tube” (that’s slang for London’s Underground) and beyond, this diverse city consistently delivers a mad mix of old world, multicultural and new. Whether a modern juicery or fast, casual café in Chelsea or South Kensington, a languid stroll through royal Hyde Park, or a no frills Saturday spent perusing the stalls at Hackney’s Broadway Market, this city, with its historic architecture and landmark monuments adjacent towering skyscrapers pays irreverent homage to yesterday, today and tomorrow.
