Londoners are stereotyped for living life by the clock, constantly scurrying to beat the march of time. The irony behind this is that if we stopped once in a while and took the time to look around, we'd realise how much time really does surround us, in the form of clocks. Who knew Big Ben has so much competition?

Many thanks to the photographers for allowing us to use their images via Flickr: Derek Crook, Stuart Sunley, Lee Jackson, Guy Tyler, Tyla, Louis Berk, Apichart Phōlasak, Yasin D, Peter H, helenoftheways and Check-In London.
