Episode Guide »
Jonathan begins his exploration of London with a double-decker bus tour of the city's famous sites, including the Tower, St. James's Palace and the British Museum. He later strolls through Hyde Park, pays a whirlwind visit to trendy Camden Market, shops at the world-renowned Harrods in exclusive Knightsbridge and pays tribute to the Beatles at Abbey Road Studios. He then takes a boat trip down the Thames to the Cockney heartland of the East End, where he meets a genuine cockney, Helen, who invites him to sample a good old East End snack - jellied eels. Jonathan ends his stay with a stop in Brixton, the black capital of Europe, visiting a traditional Caribbean barber.
