What kids love about London – Introducing child reporter Abigail

I’m Abigail, I’m 10 years old and I live in Brockley, South East London.

My hobbies are singing, dancing, writing and playing the piano.

I love living in Brockley because we have a fantastic park called Hillyfields and it has a fab view over London.

We’ve got lots of different parks near to where we live.  There’s Greenwich Park which has also got the National Maritime Museum and the famous Cutty Sark, and we’re also near to Dulwich park which has a great boat pond which I love going in with my mum, brother and sister.

We’ve also got lots of museums.  For example, there’s The Horniman Museum in Forest Hill, and in London my favourite Museums are The Science Museum, The British Museum and The Natural History Museum.

When my Auntie came over from America, we went on the cable cars in Greenwich and it was amazing.

If I was Mayor for a day, I would change all the bus stops so that they have warm seats and shelf racks full of books and comics, so that when you’re waiting for the bus and you get bored, you can sit and read until the bus comes.

So, I decided to interview some of my friends to see what they love about living in London and what they would change.

This is what they said.
