Story of London Festival runs 1-10 October with events and exhibitions that celebrate the capital as “a place of invention and change”. We asked poets who had written about this city to contribute their poems to GPS and the festival blog. Follow the trail of crumbs of the bread-loving pigeons, read the words heard by Henry Mayhew through a poet’s lens, visit allotments in East London and Highgate Cemetery, and take a ride in the London Eye. Poets have always been inspired by London – can you find any more poems to celebrate the invention and change of this great city?
