Here, you can meet them, learn their deepest secrets, and ponder the collective meaning of life…

Peter practised as a Barrister after leaving University, specialising in Criminal Law. In 1993 he left the Bar to plan the launch of a new London newspaper – Tonight. The title, which was the first UK newspaper to be produced and sent to press digitally, rolled off the presses in July 1994 with a circulation of 100,000. In 1995 we decided to embrace new technology one stage further and Tonight was reborn on the web in 1996 as LondonNet.
Little did we know then that LondonNet would become the longest-running website for the capital (and, hey yes, one of the most popular too). What started as an idea became a life’s work for David and Peter and would not have been possible without all those that have helped along the way.
While London is Peter’s undisputed ‘favourite city of the world’, he retains a long-running passion for his ‘favourite town of the world’ too: Cannes, France. It’s no secret that quality cinema is LondonNet’s speciality and the movie buzz of this Cote D’Azur town alongside the sun-drenched beaches makes this place a perfect companion to London living.
