Strand underpass onto Kingsway. I might have driven at a reasonable pace through there on a few occasions.

Bermondsey Street and Weston Street tunnels. Make use of them before they are destroyed by Netwrok Rail.

Park Lane. 40 mph speed limit.

Something about the Uxbridge Road... Any part of it Shepherds Bush to Uxbridge or Uxbridge to Shepherds Bush either way not fussed...

Not even sure why exactly... Paid a huge part in my early motoring years in the early 70's...

The bit of the A2 that goes through Blackheath - feels a million miles away from a city.

West and South Carriage drive in Hyde park! - so amazing that they still let cars through here. Really nice in the late afternoon when there's not too much traffic.

Wapping High Street - cobbled streets, lovely old quays and converted factories etc, nice atmosphere, not much traffic.

Kings Road is a nice high street to drive down. Its hardly ever stand still, its single lane with barely any traffic lights. Always some sexy eye candy too (of both human and automotive variety!).

There's something very old-skool about rothehithe tunnel. don't know why i like it, but i do. Gotta be concentrating through there though.

Lastly.. not strictly in London but very much like rotherhithe... there is a small single-lane 'side tunnel' on the heathrow approach road (when you go under the runway).. think it used to be used exclusively for taxi's? Either way.. super super narrow, and super satisfying in an X5 or similar I assure you!

the A5109 - Totteridge. Beautiful bendy roads, It doesn't feel like driving through North London.

The uxbridge road is a great place to ponder the question: How many fried chicken shops does one area need?

+1, great road, especially when it's clear.

Galley Lane and surrounding NSL roads near high barnet are great for a quick hoon as well.

+2 on Totteridge Lane. I remember some very early am drives down there in my Truimph Vitesse taking a Girlfriend home before her parents woke up. Used to drop her at the top of her road so as not to wake them up with the engine noise. Making me smile now just thinking about her.

Used to use that road when I lived in Erith. Many a time I used to take the old Chimaera to big speeds on my way home at 4 o,clock in th morning.

I thought I was the only person on here who loved that road! Never seen any police on it and you can go very, very quick when it's empty. 9/10 people you pull up next to at the lights near the prison want to race as well biggrin

Excellent, now there are 3 of us! It can bite back though as there are some interesting camber changes and bumps that can catch you off guard if you don't know the road!

Never seen too many decent cars on it though....and the suped up PUG boys won't play against the Boxster S off the lights!frown
