London is an amazing city. One of the best in the world. There is great admiration for Londoners and their way of life. The blend of living a somewhat normal life in a city full of buzz is just one of its greatest achievements.

Young and old can claim to have a great time. London Symphony highlights key issues like how the ‘the other half’ lives.  North, South, East and West have their own life style.  It doesn’t matter. One of the best things is there’s a choice. The city is a visitors haven. Many return because there is so much to see and learn about. Structures and buildings are not that high compared to other cities. Designs, old and new, mix from street to street throughout a walk.

Night time is an exciting time to be in London. Soho is a favourite.  The West End is generally full of tourists and those out on the town. When theatre shows end the streets fill with people looking for the next hot spot.
