Hey there, Georgie Girl… What’s with the Russian accent? London may be gripped by new-monied affluenza and a serious outbreak of chainstore-itis, but at 2,000 years of age, she’s positively bursting at the seams with history and culture. What’s more, ballsy Brit-dish cooking and the resurgence of villagey nabes and artisanal pride are breathing new life into the Old Smoke.
