If you’ve read the A Lady in London blog for a while, it will come as no surprise that Hampstead is my favorite London neighborhood. I love spending afternoons walking around the village and photographing my favorite spots. Which is why it’s exciting to do a photo walk here with a brand new camera. I’m trialing the recently-launched FUJIFILM X-T100, which has a stylish retro design and a set of features that has made me look forward to exploring with it in this beautiful part of the city.

Today is an exciting day for me. It’s the 11-year blog anniversary of the A Lady in London blog. It’s been an incredible journey, and I’m thrilled to say that this has been my best year both personally and professionally. I also have another exciting announcement, so read on for the news.
As soon as I get off the tube I feel like I’m in a different universe. Like I’ve traveled to the future. A steel-and-glass future, where everything and everyone is sleek and modern. Gone are the cobblestones and pastels of my usual London neighborhoods. This place is all skyscrapers and stock tickers. I’ve arrived in Canary Wharf, and I couldn’t feel farther from the London I know. But there’s more to this part of the city than I realize, and I soon find it’s not as alien as I imagine.
I love London and I love walking, and I’ve really enjoyed sharing my London walks with you over the last few years. Given the response, I’m pretty sure you like walking, too. Today I want to make it easy for you to find my self-guided London walking tours by putting them all in one blog post.
