Something slightly different for you to my normal recommendations - as I like to bring to you not just things you will enjoy going to and paying money for, but those things that might just make you stop for a minute and admire, without the need to spend money, join queues, or generally feel like you're being shepherded around from place to place - in other words, I want you to discover the delights of real London.

Now, many people spend their time wandering the streets looking down, or at the very most, at eye level - mainly because it's necessary for safety reasons, to avoid being bumped into. Then there are all the shop windows, cafes and restaurants to admire - you can see why people fail to look up. If you so thought, you may be excited by what you find.

A case in point is the delightful , also known officially as the Bridge of Aspiration - which gracefully connects the Royal Ballet School to the Royal Opera House . The bridge connects the two famous buildings by way of a gently rotating structure, which seems to represent the movement of dance itself.

Although the gap is only 30 feet across, the statement created by the bridge is really eyecatching - once you've seen it, you probably won't be able to imagine anything other than it being there.
