In a modern, fast-moving city like London, it's easy to assume that things today are more convenient than ever before, that our lives are blessed with almost infinite choices. But that's not always the case

Twerking has its roots in American strip clubs and hip hop's New Orleans Bounce scene of the Nineties, which itself traces back to West Africa, most likely to the very similar Mapouka dance in the Ivory Coast.

Why Everyone Should Escape London

So escape London and then come back to appreciate how lucky you are to live in this great city. Escaping London allows you to rebuild your humanity. We get so often stuck up in our own little world, we sometimes forget how lucky we are to be free to do things other people only dream of.

The Realities of Being a Londoner

Where I do live is London. The next best thing. The amazing, outstanding, cultural city (which I don't need a green card to reside in). And I know, that to many people, their NYC is London. They dream of living here, they dream of the cobbled streets, and of The Thames, and of the georgian houses - the same way I dream of Central Park and Bagels and Union Square.

Is the Dog Ban in Public Venues Helpful?

Louise Glazebrook | Posted 17.08.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Louise Glazebrook

It seems to be one of the perils of running a business in a city, if we were in the country I'm pretty certain I could make use of a church hall, a rugby club or a horse riding centre. My issue is that if we want our dogs to be properly socialised in the right way, for owners and dogs to be taught, to receive advice and learn then I need to be able to provide a safe and productive space to do this.

Never Mind Scotland, Where Is London's Independence Referendum?

But I hear you cry "Scotland was an independent nation for centuries between around 843 and 1707, and Venice was an independent state from around the seventh century right up 1797, whereas London has pretty much been at the heart of England since its foundation!"

We were all learners once. So, a word of warning. The next time someone beeps, I might not be so polite. I might decide it's at that exact moment I decide to practice my emergency stop. Don't be that impatient car behind me.

Love London

London has so much to offer, you can party at night, browse markets in the day and everything in between. It wasn't until February last year when my boyfriend fulfilled a childhood dream of mine by taking me to New York that I realised how utterly in love I was with this city.

Well done. Kudos to every single one of you. I knew we had it in us to be united as a proper United Kingdom for the first time, pretty much, ever and get behind the Olympics, Team GB and the sense of occasion of being involved in something so very, very special.

This book was born out of a love affair. Anyone who has visited Venice has special memories and for Russell Norman a one week stay in his youth kindled a love for the city, the food and the drink which has never dimmed.

Why I Started the Rock n'Roll Camden Walking Tours

Alison E. Wise

We could feel that Camden was different than anything we knew in California. Southern California was hot and bright, the Santa Anna winds dried out your skin and messed up your hair. I was using SPF 50 and had my hair cut like Justine from Elastica. I didn't fit in to say the least. But when I was in Camden I felt like I finally fit in.

In central London pollution levels are on the rise, more than twice the number of people killed each year in road traffic accidents are killed by pollution from cars. Do we want a London where we breathe in harmful gases as a matter of course everyday?

London remains as ever a powerhouse of visual art with new centers popping up in new areas constantly. However the capital is by no means the only option for those seeking both traditional and experimental exhibitions of world class artists.

Having been warned we wouldn't be able to get a lunchtime table at 10 Greek Street, we did what we normally do and just walked in. It doesn't always work but more often than not my timing is right and on this occasion it was good enough to score a couple of seats at the bar.

How Far Should We Go in Sacrificing Our Heritage For 21st Century Enterprise?

Last month, Southwark Council approved plans for the complete redesign of London Bridge Station. It's not that we shouldn't be embracing change, but at what cost? Is the eradication of our heritage a sign of progress towards increasingly pressing demands or merely a blind move to generate revenue?

Mark Powell has a glint in his eye and his handshake is firm when he greets me in his Marshall Street shop. As one would expect from a man born in Poplar, east London, he has a no-nonsense attitude.
