Sprawling and perpetually shrouded under a grey cloud, London is one tough city to navigate. Yet despite not having the obvious, frenetic energy of New York, London possesses an anarchistic nature underneath its stiff upper lip. The divides between East and West, North and South are rarely manifested as strongly in other cities as in The Big Smoke. Here, each area is inhabited by different tribes – the bohemian bourgeois in the West, Camden rockers in the North, Hackney hipsters in the East and the Brixton massive in the South. Like the city’s skyline, itself an idiosyncratic melody of classical Georgian and Victorian landmarks mixed with some of the world’s most fearless architecture, London is full of contradictions and mystery, which gradually reveals itself the longer one stays.
