A new look at Britain’s capital reveals surprising secrets and fascinating facts
Love London is back for a second series, exploring different areas and learning about the cultural history of one of the world’s greatest capital cities. Our guide is a London black taxi driver and we follow as he steps out of his iconic cab to meet historians and locals, visit fascinating places and make some surprising discoveries. Each episode features a distinct part of London: in Kensington and Chelsea we explore the Royal Court Theatre, while Hampstead reveals hidden gems such as the Freud Museum and Golders Hill Park. In East London we visit the extraordinary Dennis Severs’ House and stop at a pie and mash shop, while an investigation of London’s Dockland explores the role this area played in the city’s growth. In King’s Cross we look at the impressive architecture of St. Pancras railway station and wander the British Library - home to more than 150 million items. Finally, at the Museum of London, we get to see how each fascinating layer of history contributes to the amazing city London is today.
