Bit genre-esque but I always loved the way London is portrayed in children's dancing fiction - Ballet Shoes and Wintle's Wonders by Noel Streatfeild, and the Drina series by Jean Estoril, a pseudonym for Mabel Esther Allan - Drina's Dancing Year, Drina Dances Again, etc. The Drina books are a bit over-the-top travel-wise to me though - upper class I suppose? There weren't that many kids at the time who were going on big stylish ocean liners and summering in Majorca - I certainly wasn't!
