What has been your best moment in London so far?  

I went to Cineworld Haymarket, and I was the only person in the cinema and it was 3pm on a Wednesday afternoon. There was a mouse that was really calmly sitting there in the isle, and I stopped watching the film and started watching the mouse. That was a magical moment. I should probably mention another magical moment; but this is the first one that came to me.
