I love an efficient public transport system, but there's nothing like walking around a city to really discover it. Even back in Mexico City, which I know fairly well, I try to do it as much as possible and I always find new things to admire. If I do that at home, of course I was going to it in London! I welcomed every chance of a walk, however short, because there is just too much to see and it's easy to miss if you're on a bus, car, or the tube. Besides, walking gives you a better feeling for the size, movement, and life of the city. Hop off your bus/tube/whatever and walk around London with me!
Which way should we go?
There all kinds of art installations around the city, permanent and ephimeral
Towers: The Shard and the Tate Modern
There's plenty of interesting architecture
Tired or claustrophobic? Get to the river or a park!
And don't forget to look up!
