It’s hard to believe that Number One London will celebrate it’s 6th birthday tomorrow! And what a six years it’s been – we’ve had over 1,535,202 visitors from across the globe, many of whom are loyal readers, with top countries including the US, UK, Canada, Germany, Australia, France, Spain, Sweden, Poland and India. Number One London is being read in such diverse locales as Israel, Iceland, Armenia, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Uganda, Fiji and the Faroe Islands – a subarctic island group situated approximately halfway between Great Britian and Iceland. Who knew?
Including this post, we’ve published exactly 1,300 posts to date and have been fortunate enough to win a few awards along the way. Personally, Victoria and I have had a blast blogging, sharing our adventures and experiences and hearing from all of you. Thanks so much for your comments and emails and for sharing links to Number One London with your friends and for also following us on Facebook and Twitter. Thanks also to everyone with blogs and websites of their own who have been kind enough to include our link on their pages. We urge you to take a look at the “Amusing Blogs” link in the left-hand sidebar, where you will find some of our favourite blogs.
Since we began blogging, Victoria and I have returned to England several times, both separately and together, not least of which was for The Duke of Wellington Tour. Our tour posts always generate many comments and receive a warm reception. We’re pleased to tell you that there are more tours coming soon – watch this space for details. 
We’d like to thank loyal friends for your continued support and to send out heartfelt thanks to all the new friends we’ve made along the way. Please keep the comments coming – they allow us to channel our inner Sally Fields and to believe that you really, really like us. 

And lest we forget . . . .

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


  1. Happy Birthday!! You don't look a day older than 9 mos.

    Lovely painting of you by Hoppner and thank you so much for including that pretty drawing of me, sometimes mistaken for Jane Austen or the two of you. I think you will agree that it really is me.

    When I am researching my books, sometimes Google gives me a link to Number One London!! Makes me smile every time.

  2. Many, many, many happy returns of the day! My day is never complete without a visit (or three) to your blog!

    I have been threatened with great bodily harm by one of my favorite authors as I suggested your blog to her and she ended up spending hours "noodling" about on the blog. (So if anyone sees Anna Campbell in the vicinity tell me! She threatened to shoot me! LOL)

    Thank you so much for all of the fabulous information and fun I have enjoyed at my favorite address in all of London!

  3. Happy Blogiversary!!! I'm so happy to have found this blog and the many friends I made and connected here. Can't wait for the new posts and tour trips! Here's to more to come. =)
