To avoid any unnecessary trouble with the local magistrate here are some laws, peculiar to London; It is illegal in London to, beat a carpet in a public park, have sex on a parked motorcycle, impersonate a Chelsea pensioner, where a suit of armour in Parliament, catch a cab if you have the plague, queue jump in an underground station (but only if there are signs or staff telling you not to), slide on ice in any street or other thoroughfare, to the common danger of the passengers, fly a kite, or touch a pelican.
West London has been home to some of the greatest recording artists of all time, Adele, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Freddie Mercury, Phil Collins, Stormzy, Bob Dylan, to name but a few. It’s also inspired some great tunes; Streets of London (Ralph McTell), London Calling (The Clash), 59 Lyndhurst Grove (Pulp), Waterloo Sunset (The Kinks), London’s Brilliant Parade (Elvis Costello), Me & My Girl (Noel Gay), Hometown Glory (Adele), Meet Me In Batersea Park (Petula Clark), Fool On The Hill (The Beatles).
West Londoners might complain about the rain but the city actually has, on average, 583.6 millimetres of rain a year. That’s less of the wet stuff than falls on Rome, Miami Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona, Sydney or New York. How do you like them big apples?!?
Another song inspired by London, but did you know the Hammersmith and City line was the first underground commuter service in the world? It opened in 1864 and ran from Hammersmith to City where it connected with the GWR train service. Over 20,000 mobile phones are found on tube trains each year. Some of the strangest things to have been found on left behind on the underground include; a samurai sword, a human skull, a wooden leg, stuffed puffer fish, a coffin, a judge’s wig, a full sized drum kit and urn, complete with ashes and £15,000 in cash.
West London is home to over 50% of the capital’s parks. In fact, the city is so green that based on trees per mile, it actually falls within the UN definition of a forest.
It’s not just the parks, London’s waterfront is also stunning. Ruislip Lido in West London is a 60 acre lack that even has a sandy beach. While the stretch of the River Thames along Lambeth alone is home to The London Eye, National Theatre, Waterloo Station, Jubilee Park, Royal Festival Hall, National Film Theatre, Imperial War Museum and the London Aquarium. So yes, once you’ve got your West London removals out the way, you really should take a stroll.
You might be partial to a little evening G&T, but between 1720 and 1751 West London and the rest of the capital were gripped by the ‘Gin Craze’. Lack of clean drinking water and the sudden arrival of cheap gin made it a hit with the populace that was on average soon drinking 2 pints per week of the stuff. That includes children!
A former Roman Road known as the Devil’s Highway (which can still be traced through West London) was the main route in and out of London. Over the years it has attracted some infamous travellers. It was a major hunting ground for highwaymen who became the popstars of their day, hugely written about in the press, their trials (and often hangings) attracted crowds of thousands. Boudicca arrived on the route to destroy much of the city. The armies of King Charles I and Parliament travelled along it before the Battle of Turnham Green, it later became the Bath Road and was the main thoroughfare heading through Surrey and down to the West Country.
