The extensive range of shops in Oxford Street and Regent Street are all close by, and within walking distance. The world famous Harrods store is only a short tube journey away too. The new year celebrations at Trafalgar Square, with the chimes of Big Ben and the fabulous firework display over the Thames. If you still have the energy, enjoy the new years day parade as well.

Originally from South Wales, I have now lived in London for most of my adult life.
Worldly in outlook and with a good sense of humour. Sensible, kind and optimistic with a quietly calm yet confident disposition who enjoys meeting new people. Motto of my first school was "Manners Maketh Man" and I still follow this in my everyday life.
I do not smoke and enjoy the occasional visit to the pub. I also enjoy good food and eat sensibly, at least some of the time anyway!
I love living in London with all it has to offer, but equally like to travel from time to time, including the adventure of the odd city break.
I enjoy many sports, particularly rugby and boxing, and other interests include listening to many kinds of music, particularly classical and opera.
