It is my fourth visit to London and a city which becomes more interesting with each visit. This is not surprising given that London is the largest metropolitan area in the EU covering an area of 1,570 km2 and has been an important settlement for over 2000 years. London’s population of 7,556,900 within Great London and an estimated 14 million in the metropolitan area is diverse with over 300 languages being spoken in the city all served by one of the oldest and most extensive public transport systems in the world.
The major sites and galleries can easily keep you busy for weeks or months and I am hoping to visit some districts and buildings of London I have not seen before and spend some more time in Shoreditch drinking pints and watching the rain.
