Local Experts: London, Beatrice Aidin

A born and bred Londoner, I am always on the lookout for what’s new but also have a deep appreciation for the very very old. I write for many publications, including the Financial Times for which I’ve won five journalism awards, the FT’s How to Spend It magazine, and Harper’s Bazaar. I’m an avid theatre goer—we are spoiled for choice here. There’s nothing like a great matinee on one of London’s rainy afternoons. What is my favorite way to find out about more about my hometown? A good old chinwag—that’s a “chat” in cockney—with one of London’s black-cab drivers.
