Sweet tooth? Then you’ve surely heard of – and tried – the classic English Bakewell Tarts. Ever wanted to go to the home of this iconic treat? Look no further than the small market town of Bakewell in the Peak District.

I visited during our trip to the Peaks. Most of my favourite small towns and villages have a cute river or stream winding through, but Bakewell is enchanting enough without any water. It’s an easy maze of stone buildings with hidden-away tea rooms and souvenir shops, plus beautifully maintained gardens.

I have enjoyed getting to know ‘my’ London so much over the last two years. As much as I love the lights and buzz of Leicester Square and Covent Garden, there are other parts of the city that make this new Londoner feel a lot more at home. Here is my run down of my favourite slightly lesser-known parts of the city, as well as the ones that I want to explore more.

Even though I live here, there is so much to see and do, so why not try something different next time you’re in the capital?
