In this issue
When you are tired of London, you are tired of life, said the 18th century writer, Samuel Johnson. With so much to see and do in our capital – from sport to shopping, art to architecture – those words remain just as true today. So welcome to London. Welcome to Britain. I hope you make the most of just how much this great city and country have to offer.
