  • 'Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner'

  • Eat Sleep Dreamers, look who I have right with me. Hello. She's back again, my sister

  • is back. Welcome. Thank you, thanks for having me again. Thanks for coming. I got so many

  • comments from you guys saying 'I love your sister, she's amazing' so I kind of had to

  • bring you back. Guys! I hang out with her enough, I don't want to have to do it with

  • you on my channel as well. Work, weekends! So where are we? We're in London! Yeah, we

  • are walking along the river in London. We're actually going to Shakespeare's Globe, we're

  • going to go and see a play for my birthday. A very cultural experience. Yeah, so very

  • kindly Annie got me a ticket to see Shakespeare. To see 'Much Ado About Nothing' so we're just

  • having a little walk around before. Coffee. Yes, a little coffee and a little walk. So

  • he doesn't fall asleep. And a little walk around London. Obviously Annie and I, we're

  • from London and I wanted to sort of talk about the city with you and what it means to be

  • a Londoner with you and stuff like that. So yeah, like what does it mean to you when you

  • are walking around London what does it mean to be a Londoner? I think my love for London

  • has really grown since leaving London. I think when I was young, it was just where we were

  • brought up and I took it completely for granted and then over time, years travelling, seeing

  • different parts of the world you get a certain pride in your own country and your own town.

  • That maybe you don't have when you are young because you just think everyone grows up in

  • London and you can't really perceive people have different experiences growing up. And

  • now, now that I'm outside London coming back in is such a thrill. I mean today, I was on

  • such a high when I met you. Yeah you were buzzing. I was buzzing, I was like 'I'm in

  • London! This is amazing' I love this place. Well especially as the train station brings

  • you right into the centre, so you are in the heart of it. Yeah, exactly. We're just walking

  • through a little tunnel.

  • So yeah there's just an energy and a buzz about London and the fact that today we had

  • a pizza by the river, we just went and got a coffee in Borough market, we're about to

  • go to the Globe to watch Shakespeare and then we're going on to the Tate to look at some

  • art, you know, you can squeeze that in. Yeah. You just get your fix of everything. Definitely.

  • I think what I love about London as well is that there's old and new like right next to

  • each other. Like for example old and new. That was a joke. No but like for example we're

  • walking right now, we've got St Paul's Cathedral which is, you know, built in I think like

  • the 1600s. Oh here we go! Something like that, I'm not quite sure but a long time ago. And

  • then the Millennium bridge. Which was built, you know, seventeen years ago. And you've

  • got that kind of. Yeah the juxtaposition of the old and the new. I knew that was the word

  • you were looking for. Help you out. And I thin what else is special about London is,

  • a bit like you were saying, you just have these pockets all around and so you know we

  • were in Borough market just now and that had a completely different feel from being by

  • the river. This has got a different energy about it and Borough market was small stalls

  • and little independent businesses and now we are here with offices and there's a school

  • and boats and you know. Definitely, well we were talking earlier about like the sort of

  • village aspect to London and London people say is made up of lots of little villages

  • isn't it. And you find your village. You find your village and that's your community and

  • it's also got a distinct personality so you know, it's got its own kind of style of houses

  • or its own feel about it and that's really nice I think, you kind of find your community.

  • But then I was saying that I haven't been back to Borough market in years because once

  • you find your village you sometimes you are bad about going to different parts of London.

  • Yeah, that's true. And that's what's so nice, is you said 'Come on let's go get coffee there'

  • and you explore a different part. A part that I actually haven't been to for about ten years,

  • it's crazy. Yeah, definitely.

  • Alright, we're just getting to the Globe Theatre. Very exciting. I remember we went to the Globe

  • theatre years ago and this is. So the Globe theatre is basically, in fact explain to me.

  • So it's where Shakespeare used to originally perform his plays, it's the same spot but

  • they have re-done the building so it's not obviously the original building but it's an

  • improved version but done in the old style. Yeah and it hasn't got a roof so it's completely

  • open air. So when it rains, you get wet. If there's a helicopter goes over. You hear it,

  • which there will be in London. I remember we went years and years ago and Hilary Clinton

  • was in the audience. That was pretty cool. Very impressive and all her security. Yeah.

  • So we're going to go in. Are we sitting or standing? We're standing. Ok, are we? Like

  • the groundlings. Oh god! We have to stand for three hours. It's the authentic experience.

  • Alright, ok.

  • It's the interval, how's it going? We're feeling very inarticulate, very unfunny in comparison

  • to the amazing Shakespeare play. Yeah, it's really funny, it's like laugh-out-loud funny.

  • What a place to watch a play, right? Amazing. That's the thing, it's just the atmosphere

  • and it's so alive. You notice before the helicopters going overhead, you are in London. And there's

  • a real energy from the audience. Yeah. And what's really cool is that this is in the

  • heart of London. You are right in the city centre. A few metres from the Thames. Yeah

  • and yet it feels like we could be in like the 1600s or Shakespearean times. This is

  • how it was in those days, amazing. Yeah, just with a few more iPhones and stuff.

  • Alright, so we've just got to, to the Millennium bridge. The wobbly bridge. Yeah, I've told

  • this story before but for you guys that haven't heard it. So when this bridge was opened in

  • around 2000, wasn't it? It was a very windy day and people started to walk across it and

  • the wind was so strong that the bridge wobbled, it swung from side to side and people were

  • kind of. Panicking. Going around, and so they had to close it, didn't they? And then re-opened

  • it. They put some dampeners in to stop it moving. And they re-opened it a year later.

  • So we call it the wobbly bridge. It's never lost its nickname, its infamous nickname.

  • But it's brilliant, it's such a beautiful bridge. Like you said again, the old leading

  • to the new. The new leading to the old with St Paul's in the background. The old there

  • and then it leads right round to the Tate Modern. Where I'm dragging you to later. Yeah,

  • we're going to head there later. Culture!

  • So we're just crossing the Wobbly bridge. So I was thinking about London and about what

  • makes London London and I think it's like the multi-culturalism. Yes. And it's like

  • the way that it's kind of, it's embraced. You know, like as you are walking around London,

  • like there's every culture, there's every race and I think that's one of the wonderful

  • things isn't it? There's everything, it's a melting pot of everything and I kind of

  • love that. Like even as we are walking here it's like everyone from everywhere. Yeah and

  • everyone leading their own little lives but brought together as a whole. And everyone

  • does just get along, just gets on you know? Yeah it definitely feels like it. That's a

  • really special thing about London. Yeah and everyone is allowed to be who they want to

  • be. You don't have to conform to a certain type. In fact everything is embraced, isn't

  • it? No, absolutely you can kind of express yourself the way you want to do it. It's kind

  • of accepting, it accepts, the city accepts anyone. And I think that's why people seek

  • it out because in other parts of the United Kingdom maybe you have to conform a bit more

  • but then people find their way to London because anything really goes and there's a space and

  • a place for everybody and that is quite special. Yeah, I agree. Alright, so what's your favourite

  • building in London? I'm going to give you my one first of all. Well i love Summerset

  • House but the Shard, in terms of new buildings I love the shard. The way the sun set it reflects

  • the light, you know and suddenly it looks like this incredible. And you are almost on

  • a par with the planes, almost on the same level as the planes coming in over London.

  • You can practically wave to the passengers. Yeah, remember when we took Stan up there

  • and there were people cleaning the windows right outside on like the 50th floor or whatever.

  • Scariest job in London. Yeah, that was pretty scary. Yeah, that was another great birthday

  • present. Yeah It was. So many good ones for you. So inspired! What did you get me? A book?

  • Woah! So what's your favourite building in London? I think we might be looking at it

  • right now. Ohhh! I think what's so great about St Paul's Cathedral is it withstood two world

  • wars. Unbelievably didn't get bombed, so it is one of the oldest. I think it did get bombed,

  • juts not terribly. Well, it's still looking pretty good. Yeah it's looking good. I think

  • it's aright. I think it's done ok. It's pretty symbolic, isn't it of London. It's pretty

  • symbolic and even the way they've lined up this bridge here so that you go straight up

  • to it, I think is pretty impressive.

  • Alright, we've had a great walk around London. My battery going so we're going to say goodbye.

  • Bye Eat Sleep Dreamers! We'll see you again definitely, I'll bring my sister along again.

  • I know that's why you watch these videos just for her. Thank you for hanging out with me.

  • I've loved it. It's been super fun. We'll walk around London again. Wait shall we just

  • finish with a song. Ok. 'Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner, that I love London so. And

  • maybe it's because I'm a Londoner I think of her wherever I go.' Bye!

'Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner'
