My grandparents grew up in the east end, so although I was born in Essex , my roots are here
Well worth heading to a local pub- my favourite is The Hemingford Arms, where you can eat delicious Thai food whilst listening a traditional Irish music session
Rather than paying to just go up The Shard, book a table at the bar there instead- cocktails and a view!

Max’s Sandwich Shop In Crouch Hill have the best sandwiches!
For a Sunday roast, head out of Zone 1 and go to pubs where the locals live

I absolutely love the Southbank, wandering along and ending up in borough market for a doughnut
Don't be affraid to get lost, you never know what you might find!

I grew up just North from London but have been an official Londoner since 2010
My favourite pub in London is called the Mayflower, it's a lovely walk along the south bank of the Thames from Tower Bridge. Enjoy a nice pint overlooking the river and pretend you're a pirate
Pick a neighbourhood a bit further out, head there and then just wander around. I guarantee you'll stumble on something great

Grew up on a farm in Somerset but now loving the big city life.
I love to go to Mildred's in Soho for fresh and super tasty vegetarian cuisine and then finishing off with a glass of bubbly.
Go to Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew to lose yourself in nature. If you want a fun night out then head to Soho Theatre to see some of the best comedians.

I was born in Hull, Yorkshire but moved to London in 2011
Favourite place to eat is The Oystermen in Covent Garden, you can't go wrong there. Always a good spread. Although St. John's bakery in London Bridge is a close second
Near Tower Hill Station, there's a hidden gem of a pub called The Dickens Inn. Great drinks, pub food and looks beautiful. Sunday Roast, always a good shout. You're right by the harbour too. Not too far from the Tower of London
Max

I was born and raised in St Albans, Hertfordshire, but now living in the east end of London
My favourite place to eat in London is Yardsale Pizza, Hoxton
If you're on a night out late in Soho, go to Garlic and Shots - you will not regret it
Elle

I'm from the West Country, in Bristol, but I'm afraid I don't have the accent!
Sunday Brunch at Megan's is the tastiest & the staff are always so lovely.
Go to see as many theatre shows as you possibly can - The Moulin Rouge at the Vaults in London Bridge is not to be missed. Also, the Stairway to Heaven is the best bar in London.
Paddy

I'm from Scarborough in North Yorkshire but have lived in Borough for over a year, making me a certified local!
The India Club just off the Strand is outrageously good for the price and their dosas will make your heart sing
Follow the river! Rent a bike or get on a TFL boat and you can explore the city without a single traffic jam.

I am from Essex - just East of East london
my favourite restaurant in London is six by Nico because I’m so indecisive I couldn’t possibly decide on one meal, I’d rather settle with the 6 individual courses that they serve to you at the 6 by Nico experience
you cannot beat the atmosphere at Camden market, grab some food and take a browse at the interesting stalls, then escape the wildness and go for a stroll the the beautiful neighbouring village of primrose hill
Thomas

Born and raised in Leeds up North, but have lived in London for well over a decade - pretty much all over the city!
Oooh, I’m a sucker for Street Food - get yourself to a Street Feast or Mercato Metropolitano for an abundance of vendors, refined menus, and tasty dishes.
Central London is beautiful, but if you need to temper your city break with some nature; head to Richmond Park in South West London and hang out with some wild deer - you’ll forget you’re even in the city.
David

Born and raised in South-East London, I've been tummy-rumbling my way around the city my whole life, and I fall in love with it more every year
London is strung through with hidden gems - just stroll off from the main drag and follow that beautiful nose of yours. But if you're lost? Try wine and cheese in the quintessential Le Beaujolais, or dine in the magic, bohemian world of Circolo Popolare

From South East London and have eaten my way through most neighbours here in my time!
Head to any of the Eat Tokyo branches around London for a delicious bento box and tofu!
ou can walk within Tower Bridge and look beneath your feet at the traffic passing below - it’s affordable, thrilling and you get a great view of the winding Thames.
