In my previous post I lamented the total lack of a Cape Town autumn this year as I’m heading for London on Sunday.

The high number of expats and tourists that the city hosts, results in a seemingly infinite amount of attractions; it’s very difficult to be bored in this urban jungle!
Here are ten of my favourite things that I would recommend to first-time visitors.
