London Puzzles: Nifty Mnemonics

The following four mnemonics can be used to help you remember the orders of certain London-based features. Can you work out what they are?

  • We Have Water Below Moving Soft London Turds (invented by a Londonist reader for a different article)
  • Little Apples Grow Quickly, Please (a cabbie favourite)
  • Good For Dirty Women (another cabbie fave)
  • Not Quite Lennon-McCartney, but our top hit could still be Lambada (we just made this one up)

And feel free to submit your own mnemonics in the comments.
