London has been shaped by so many architects over the centuries. One of the foremost of the modern era is Lord Norman Foster; he and partners within his architectural firm have designed so many iconic buildings, not just in London but across the UK and all around the world.
Indeed, I didn’t even realise until just now that the image I had already chosen for his quote – of the British Museum’s Great Court and its spectacular glass roof – was actually one of Lord Foster’s projects! The new space opened in 2000, transforming the use of this huge central space and is one of London’s most popular attractions.
As the quote says, even though there is so much to see and explore around the world, including so many incredible and fascinating cities, nowhere on earth is quite like London!

So very true, there is nowhere that is really like London.
There really is nowhere like London, this is true. The London of my childhood was formed by Bedknobs and Broomsticks, but the London of my adult years is very much less magical. It’s a fab city though!
Isn’t that fab? That you didn’t even realise you’d picked one of his designs? I love it there too.
London has so many iconic buildings and architectural features both new and old.

It is very true. I used to live in London and I love it there. But I really can’t afford it. Way out of my pocket. lol!
My husband is dying to get us back to London!
