Exactly 11 years ago today, the capital witnessed a terrorism attacked which rocked the western world.
Four bombs were detonated across London, targeting civilians as they made their way to work in the morning rush hour.
Three bombs exploded on the London Underground just after 8.50am at Liverpool Street, Edgware Road and between Russell Square and King's Cross.
Shortly after, another bomb exploded on a number 30 bus at Tavistock Square.
52 people died in the attacks including several from west London, with a further 770 injured.
As a memorial service took place in Hyde Park this morning to remember those who lost their lives, we remember those individuals who died in a devastating day which rocked the city.
'What we must not forget is the individual stories'
Speaking to getwestlondon about 7/7, chair of the Tavistock Memorial Trust Philip Nelson said what cannot be forgotten, even more than a decade on, are the individual people and families affected by the bombings.
"What's often sidelined is the individual stories and those personally affected," said Mr Nelson.
"We need to think of those families and the people who survived too, like emergency service workers who, despite having help, may never see the things they did on that day every again.
"Each of those need to be recognised and in such a fast paced city, they need to know we have not forgotten."
Mr Nelson, who ensured memorials opened in London to remember those affected, also added the city was resilient even in the face of such a shocking attack.
"Thank you to our incredible police force, we have been able to avoid similar incidents, and I think although the risk is still there, with attacks in Europe reminding us of this, the city is quite resilient."
