What have you always wanted to know about London? Whether it's the purpose of those metal studs on pavements or the distance you can walk from Trafalgar Square without crossing the road (the collective Londonist brain works in mysterious ways...), there's something about this city that must be niggling you.
Chances are it's something none of your friends know the answer to, and something you don't quite know enough about to Google it. And if YOU'RE wondering about something, other Londoners probably are too.
That's where we come in. We want to know your London questions — and have a go at answering them. It can be anything related to transport, history, landmarks, tourist sites, personalities, or anything else you can think of — provided it's related to London.
Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org with "London Question" in the subject line, and we'll do our best to get your niggle straightened out on the site. Feel free to send any relevant pictures too. We can't guarantee we'll know the answer to absolutely everything you throw at us, but we're always game for a challenge.
To give you some inspiration, here are a few London questions we've answered in the past:
