Happy Birthday Tower Bridge! After 125 years, we take a look at some of the defining moments in the history of Tower Bridge
November's an odd month in London. The weather can be bright, sunny and crisp, or grey, foggy and cold. There is still much to be enjoyed, though and it can be a fantastic time to see the capital. There's a small lull as the summer tourists melt away and the students go back to college, but the Christmas shoppers haven't yet arrived. There are still big openings of major exhibitions, quirky festivals and, of course, there's Bonfire Night. This year, as an added extra, the autumn leaves are late, so we have nature's fireworks to look forward to as well.
September is one of my favourite times of year in London. The weather usually cheers up, evenings are still relatively long, there’s loads still going on - and the kids are back in school, which makes getting around just that tiny bit easier. Of course there are still lots of visitors, but that just gives the place a buzz. With a bit of luck the tube strikes that have been plaguing London this summer will be over too.
