Nothing captures the pace and beauty of a city like a good time-lapse video. And few cities compare to the vibrant magnificence of London.

If your heart is yearning for London, this video will either sate your desire or make you want to book a plane ticket ASAP.

The video, titled "Restless Nights," was made from 18,000 photos taken by photographer Paul Richardson.

"Whenever I visit London I'm always surprised by the true 24/7 nature of the city; it really is a place that never sleeps. That was exactly what I wanted to capture, the 'hustle and bustle' of everyday life. Unfortunately the weather was true to English standards, and it rained pretty much every single day, forcing me to shoot at night," Richardson says on the video's Vimeo page.
