And there is no better view of the city than from the top of historic and charming Highgate Village. It’s the place where disillusioned young Dick Whittington heard the sound of Bow Bells and was persuaded to “turn again” to resume his progress towards becoming Mayor of London three times. The spot of legend where the bells “spoke” to him is marked with a stone and a statue of his famous black cat.
