London is not only one of the major cities in the UK, but it is also a renowned metropolitan city in Europe with such diversity, mixing cultures from around the world.

Even more special, is that the heritage and tradition of the city integrates so well with the cultural diversity of its residents; there are generally open and receptive attitudes towards new things, which is why London attracts lots of new start-up brands. It makes the retail and shopping experience here very special and unique.

White Cube, 144-152 Bermondsey Street, SE1 3TQ

A London gallery will always reawaken my soul and make me feel alive; I value ‘losing myself’ in a conscious state of mind. I’ll often carry a mini Phoebe for gallery visits. Its bright colour and simple hardware suit the mood of the space. 

Broadway Market

At the weekend, I’ll tend to carry a mini Lorna for a coffee at Broadway Market and a stroll around the canal. I'll probably grab some olives from the former, before picking up some flowers from Colombia Road.

Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA

Elsewhere in the city, I love hanging out with friends around Somerset House, with my mini Johnny in tow. If we’re eating out in the evening, it’s the right fit thanks to its classy, unique detailing and reasonable size. My favourite cuisine is Mediterranean; there are lots of decent restaurants and bars near to Somerset House, and a view of the river in the evening is a bonus!

The thing about London is that, from street to street, you will turn and discover a completely different vibe. You will literally never get bored of the city. It’s totally unpredictable.
