Quiz: Work Out The London Alphabet

Can you work out the London location, institution or other local oddity represented by each letter in this alphabet? In nearly all cases, the picture is the first letter of the answer. A few have also been cropped or edited to obscure neighbouring letters that might give the game away.

Please, only one letter guess per person, so that more people get a turn.

Note: in a small number of cases, we’ve ever so cheekily cropped from creative commons pics without crediting, as that would lead you to the answer. We do hope you’ll forgive us this transgression. If we’ve used one of your pics and you’re unhappy about it, we’ll swap it for something else and buy you a tin of alphabety spaghetti.
