Londoner's guide to London

Ask a Londoner for a tour of their city and chances are they'll take you to the pub round the corner from their office, their favourite stretch of green space flatteringly described as a park, and finish up with an elbow-filled experience of Oxford Circus.

Created by London is the Reason, the following chart does a much better job than the average London resident, divulging little-known facts and gems from around the streets of the UK's capital. We had no idea that a bus driver managed to jump his double-decker over Tower Bridge as it was opening, nor that Parliament's clock tower is kept in time with old pennies.

We're off to embarrass some tour guides.
