Postman’s Park is my favourite place in London. Fact. There are three reasons for this: 1. It’s eerily serene, which is hard to find around these parts. 2. It featured in my one of my favourite play/movies, Closer, which you will have unknowingly heard of through three popular emo songs (Thnks Fr Th Mmrs, Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off, But It’s Better If You Do) if not through its numerous award nominations. 3. It has a memorial – or wall of plaques – dedicated to heroic self-sacrifice.
