The London Bucket List

I’ve owned my lovely little flat in London for over three years now – which totally blows my mind – and I now consider myself a proper Londoner. Proof that I am one is I think in the following facts: I hate people that amble down the street, who don’t know which tube line they want, who think it’s fine to walk five abreast along the pavement and I seem to think it’s acceptable to find a Pret or Starbucks every 100 yards. So yes I’m a definitely a Londoner but I still don’t know parts of London that well, in fact there’s a hell of a lot of London that I’ve yet to see and experience and I’ve decided that this needs to change. After two fun days of playing tour guide last week (which I promise I’ll write that post very soon!) I’ve decided I need to create a proper list of London sites that I need to visit and see and areas that I want to get to know. So here it is, here’s my London bucket list. What do you think, is it comprehensive or am I missing something super important. what would you suggest?
