Taylor Swift's favorite London pubs, parks (and kebab shop) revealed in map of the capital

 

She may have said so long to London in her latest album – but Taylor Swift is set to rekindle her love affair with the city later this month. The pop sensation, 34, is performing three consecutive nights at Wembley Stadium from 21 June as part of her Eras Tour, which has grossed over $1bn worldwide.

The star will then return in August to play a further five sold-out shows, which will be attended by over 450,000 Swifties. However, the star – who previously professed her love for ‘London Boy’ Joe Alwyn – has a long-standing and complicated history with the UK’s capital city. Taylor is first referenced London in her 2012 song ‘Come Back… Be Here’ where she pines after a mystery man, singing: ‘You’re in London and I break down ’cause it’s not fair that you’re not around.’

The singer, who smashed streaming records with her 13th album Tortured Poets Department in April, is believed to have first become acquainted with the city in 2012 when she was dating Robert F. Kennedy’s grandson Conor. The star then moved to London in 2017 in the early days of her relationship with her actor ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn. Over the next six years, Taylor – who is reportedly staying in the Cotswolds during the UK leg of her tour – developed a handful of favorite haunts across the city, including a rather unlikely kebab shop in Kentish Town.

Here FEMAIL reveals Taylor’s guide to London, which is ‘haunted’ by her famous British ex-boyfriends. Nobody has a clue they’ve been walking past a music superstar. Not even her new neighbors.’ The following year, the singer began working on her album Lover and recorded the songs Daylight and London Boy at Metropolis Studios in Chiswick.

In March 2021, The Daily Mail’s showbiz editor Katie Hint reported that Taylor and Joe Alwyn had ‘spent much of lockdown at his flat in Crouch End’ before the couple moved to nearby Primrose Hill. A source told the Mail at the time: ‘Lockdown has changed a lot of things for Taylor and Joe, so they will be spending longer in London than they were initially going to. ‘Therefore, they thought it was perhaps time to find themselves somewhere a little more spacious.’

It was reported that the couple were renting the four-storey, six-bedroom townhouse close to where Joe grew up. Primrose Hill became notorious in the late Nineties and early Noughties as a hotbed of wild partying thanks to a coterie of hard-living locals that included Noel Gallagher, Kate Moss, Sadie Frost and Jude Law. More recent homebuyers include Claire Foy and Vanessa Kirby.
