  • Hello!

  • I'm Twiggy. I'm a

  • model, an actress, a singer,

  • tap dancer, quite a good cook actually!

  • I have been really lucky,I mean I started off in 66 as a model and I was this very young.

  • 16-year-old schoolgirl, who loved fashion, loved clothes, loved making

  • mad outfits to wear. I was given the nickname Twiggy because

  • I had very skinny legs. I think the heart and soul of

  • London is is still the same as I always remember it . And my dad was very good

  • about taking us to places, the Natural History Museum,

  • the V&A in which we are sitting now, this gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous museum.

  • the exhibitions they have on here to do with fashion and jewellery

  • and anything to do with design is extraordinary. I remember coming in

  • probably twenty-five years ago and

  • there was this pale pink rock like that size, it was a ruby,

  • an uncut ruby, and I've never forgotten it. I mean I think we're very blessed

  • in the fact that we have some of the great museums

  • an art galleries in the world. I have lots of

  • very fond memories of lots of wonderful places in London. One has to be the

  • Royal Albert Hall because

  • you won't believe this but I actually played it one night. I did a concert tour in

  • the seventies and I played the Albert Hall and that was scary!

  • I mean it's one of the great buildings. The other great thing about London

  • is shopping!

  • What girl doesn't love to shop? You've got everything here for

  • whatever your budget is, and we've got amazing shopping streets.

  • Bond Street, Regent Street, Knightsbridge.

  • When you come to London you've got to go to the theatre.

  • Not only do we have wonderful performers, but the buildings themselves are

  • iconic and beautiful and amazing. I mean London's unique

  • because it's London and there's so much to do. We've got Waterloo Bridge

  • and walk along the South Bank because you go the views of the other side

  • of London which is the lovely old part,

  • and then you can walk past The National

  • all the little cafes and you've got that view of St Pauls.

  • Everyone wants to come to London! It's the best city in the world.

  • And I live here, I'm very lucky.
