In this episode, Anne Marie talks to Living London History blogger Jack Cheser about her most favorite place in the world, London. Like many history lovers, Jack is interested in the tangible, liveable and breathable history we are surrounded by as we go about our everyday lives.
He started his blog so that he could share his journey discovering London’s fascinating and vibrant past as he walked its bustling grand streets, diving down its mysterious alleyways and strolling along the banks of the Thames. He believe that the city itself is the greatest and most interesting museum of all.
Jack talks about the city, his favorite neighborhoods, and we get in depth on one place in particular, Covent Garden.
