The Allure of the East

Some fascinating London geography in Sunday's Brisbane Times.

Not only is Deptford just "around the corner" from Spitalfields and Whitechapel but violent crime is 20 times worse here than the oh so peaceful east end.

A note at the end of the article informs us that The writer was a guest of VisitBritain and British Airways.


  1. Ah yes, this one made me wince. In fact, I wondered whether the writer had actually visited Britain at all!

  2. It's always interesting to see how London is viewed by outsiders, but you do often wonder if they are talking about the same places you know.
