Actually my current contract and my previous job were both pretty
interesting (IMHO)

 - one was building a secure distributed client/server
smart-network-and-office-hub for a company in bristol, which included
a client on an embedded linux in a dinky little box - not that I was
there long enough to play with the fun hardware much (due to family
stuff unrelated to the job).

- one of my current clients is also pretty interesting (again IMHO)
munging data feeds and reports for airlines, lots of domain knowledge
and interesting user-cases.

Naturally - neither is in London - the first was in Bristol (and paid
nicely), the current is in Exeter (but telework at a pretty low
contract rate).

I suppose the BBC contracts could be pretty interesting if you're into
massive scaling new media stuff.
