London

I grew up south of London, and while it’s always been a major tourist destination, the city has really transformed over the last 20 years. The combination of history and modernity is tough to match.

London, United Kingdom • Wishlist • 

Best place for watching Shakespeare in London of course. Pay 5 pounds and stand with the “groundlings” just as it would have been in Shakespeare’s day.

Has Matt gone mad? Does he have a hidden secret? Why is he recommending a bra shop? Well because they sell the best bras in London (so I’ve heard), supply the Queen, and have free coffee and biscuits to keep husbands happy.
