MOSTLY B: you are Hackney

You love food and know where to go for all the best dishes, keeping your finger on the cultural pulse but also holding a place in your heart for good old fashioned stuff. Most importantly, you’re proud to call yourself a south Londoner.

Dog walks in Richmond Park – whether you have a hound or not – are a staple on a Sunday afternoon. You’re a fan of tradition, but also love to explore new trends and indulge in cultural travel from time to time.

Mostly E: you are Croydon
Your’e aware of trends, but aren’t a slave to them and enjoy your home comforts more than anything. However, you love going out and discovering new bars and restaurants with friends and will find any excuse to socialise after work.
