The Winner

In November 2014, we launched an international search to find London’s Official Guest of Honor; thousands applied but only one would claim the title.

Meet Adaeze Uyanwah - the lucky winner of our competition to become London’s Official Guest of Honor.

Adaeze, 24, lives in California, USA. She is a certificated primary substitute teacher and freelance writer, she is also a huge Harry Potter fan. Her perfect day in London would include waking up in Buckingham Palace, visiting a traditional London pub, taking a tour of the Houses of Parliament, visiting the British Museum, watching a West End show and ending the day on the London Eye overlooking the city.

London's got so much culture, so much tradition… It's just beautiful in my opinion, I love London so much.  It's sort of like a playground, you guys have your own Ferris wheel!" Adaeze Uyanwah

Joining Adaeze on her trip of a lifetime, will be her mom, Faye, who Adaeze describes as one of the smartest and funniest people she knows.

Congratulations Adaeze! We can’t wait to welcome you, and your mom, to the city as our Official Guest of Honor. London is waiting…
