Sights Sounds and Smells of London

My story is actually taking place in modern-day America. The main character is from London, and is reminiscing about it. 

Terms searched: sights and sounds of london, memories of london. things I remember most clearly about London, things I miss about London.I was looking for specific examples of people writing of their personal experiences with it. Mostly all that came up was tourism. 

I'm looking for what this character might remember and think about fondly. Or maybe not-so-fondly, but it's still oddly endearing because it's home. Specific sights and sounds and smells and experiences that are specific to London. What does the sky look like there? How does the weather feel?

Example. If I were writing about Alberta, Canada, I might talk about the wide open skies, the rushing sound of wheat blowing in the dry wind, the smell of oil and cattle,the carefree attitudes of the townspeople, etc.

I've never been to London, but I'm trying to recreate a very brief glimpse of the atmosphere there. Lend a hand? =D
