London has countless tourist attractions and when I first came to London a year ago I thought that even as a student I would be visiting the London eye and the Madame Tussauds. However, that was not the case, not only was it a “touristy” thing to do but also I discovered the alternative side to London. A side to London that not many foreigners would normally go to see, just simply because it is not heard of as much as the typical sightseeing places.
Mainstream tourist attractions are there for a reason, however there is a lot of information on that already, so I want to explore alternative places to go and things to do as students, some of which are more common to Londoners and others that most Londoners are not even familiar with.
London like other cities is organic, it changes every so often. While there can be no full guide to London as it is perceived differently by individuals, I want to discover different aspects of London that can appeal to people with different interests.
The pictures on this post give you an idea of what you may see on my upcoming posts. Also having a personal interest in culture, art, music, fashion, food, architecture, history and my curiosity to learn new things, I will try to include as many of these things in some way or the other in my blog.
You might notice that some of the photography on this page are ©Divya R Dadlani, as they were taken by my friend who is studying at London College of Fashion and has been capturing great pictures of some places we have been to and things we have seen.
