Life in London

Fat Tony

TL: Where is home for you? 
FT: Pimlico. It has that London magic and a Mary Poppins feel. I love the coffee shops and knowing all the dogs in the area.

TL: What’s your first memory of London? 
FT: Visiting Selfridges as a child with my parents. It felt like stepping into Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – the most wonderful place on earth, full of splendour and grandeur.

TL: What’s your London secret? 
FT: Bennington Square in Vauxhall. It has charming terrace houses and an old water wheel in the park. There's also a community cafe with art exhibitions, making it a hidden gem off the beaten track.

Being proud of where you live. It's not about where you were born or grew up; you can come from anywhere in the world, but you can live here, and feel like you belong. I’m always proud to be a Londoner and part of the community.

Favourite Things

TL: What is your favourite shop?
FT: Selfridges. It still holds the magic from my childhood, and now they let dogs in, thanks to me!

TL: Favourite thing about The Londoner?
FT: The Ballroom! And its location on Leicester Square.

TL: Favourite work of art at The Londoner?
FT: The McQueen piece in The Gallery.

My favourite place in The Londoner is The Ballroom. The whole floor has a warm and inviting ambiance that is difficult to achieve for something of such a staggering size.
