What makes London special for you?

Yesterday on Facebook, we asked for our friends to tell us about their favourite bits of London, especially any 'secret' places that make the City special.

Niki started us off by posting that Bankside, Postmans' Park and Borough Market all have a place in her heart, and that the Bobby Moore statue at Wembley Stadium makes her proud!

Andrew Kerr posted The Market Porter in Borough market, best pub in Britain...can almost see it from my office....hmmm getting thirsty!!

(That is a great pub and always busy!)

Amanda Bastow loves crossing the river at night in a taxi

Stephen McGrane is enamoured of the dolphin lamp posts on the South Bank and that white deco building with a clock on opposite bank

Praful Varsani added Golders Hill Park. Has small zoo, kids play park, tennis courts, and woodland. Great pubs around corner, Spaniards Inn and the Bull&Bush to our list.

Jon Harper professed to be a fan of HMS Belfast.

Niki asked if anyone had ever been on the river cruise from Westminster to Greenwich? It's a unique and brilliant way to see the sights, including hidden bits of London that you'd otherwise miss.

Nancy has been on the boat trip at night and says that London looks magical with all the bridges, Westminster and Canary Wharf lit up.

We'll carry this one on I think, there are some great suggestions coming through, and today we've asked our younger members to share what they love about London.

We'll keep you posted!
