Last year, I ummed and ahhed about the BDT. I weighed up reasons why I should go (all that creativity, design, food, coolness, fun) against the ones that kept me home (what do I know about design? or coolness? what would I do with the kids? Would I ever find a parking space?)
Needless to say, I ended up not going.
But I wish I had.
SE London. I’m a fan. Can you tell?
But now and again I still wobble about living in the city with kids, and that is when I lose sight of all the good stuff the area has to offer.
This time, rather than write a new ‘Pros’ list, I decided to ask other SE Londoners what they liked about it the most — their hidden gems, their best kept secrets or just simply their favourite spots in the area.
