Live like a local

Somehow it’s no surprise that London’s been around for over 1,000 years. You can feel it. For one thing, the place is full of those blue plaques telling you that this was once the home of Charles Dickens (48 Doughty Street) or Nancy Astor (4 St James’s Square).

The great thing is that London’s not stuck in its past. It’s never going to become a beautifully preserved old fossil, the way some historic cities do. It’s got far too much energy and spirit and sheer cheek for that. You can’t stand back and watch London go by – you’ve got to jump right in. Which is what home exchange – living as a local – is all about.


Today, London has blossomed into the culinary capital of the world. And even if you don’t know one end of an egg from the other, you can learn to cook simple but exceptional dishes at home.
