A fantastic bronze sculpture by Jonathan Kenworth of a Lioness chasing a Lesser Kudu that I stumbled upon at Upper Grosvenor Gardens, which is located a stones throw from Victoria Station.
A great piece of public art… at least I get this - unlike so many modern pieces that are nothing but junk!
The Fitzroy Tavern located at 16 Charlotte Street in London is a Sam Smiths pub – you either love, hate or put up them because they sell cheap ale! They sell their own range of beers, spirits and soft drinks, which is if you ask me is fairly decent stuff, especially the Old Brewery Bitter, Taddy Lager and the Stout which is exceptionally good.
The Fitzroy Tavern is a traditional boozer that is has seen better days and could with seeing a few quid spend on sprucing it up a wee bit! Never the less it is a Sam Smiths London pub that is worth a visit. Dylan Thomas the hard drinking genius was one of many so called bohemian regulars from the 1920-1930s.
For more pictures and my thoughts on the Fitzroy Tavern.
The Stratford Shoal what more can I say than it does the job, which is hiding a 1970’s ugly Shopping Centre from the eyes of the world…and it looks visually appealing - kind of!
The slightly unnerving and creepy ‘Odyssey’ sculptures which are part of the Robert Koenig exhibition currently taking place at St Martins in the Fields Church in London is a particular favourite of mine. These picture features some of the figures that were lurking in the Crypt!
Odyssey runs until the 20 of July 2012 go check it out while you can…
On Friday afternoon I enjoyed a mini tour of London’s oldest and quite probably grandest Railway hotel the Grosvenor Hotel followed by cocktails in their Reunion Champagne & Cocktail Bar. A very cool and civilised bar in which to unwind and enjoy a couple of drinks.
For more on my, yours truly the Wandering Scotsman’s blogger trip to the Grosvenor Hotel pop over to London Is Cool.
I captured this picture on Hopefield Avenue, a pretty tree lined road in the Queens Park area of London just the other day. I love how the flowers from the magnolia trees have created a carpet of colour on the cold, hard, grey pavement.
On Thursday evening I sampled quite a few Saint lagers at their Saint Presents event at Oliver Spencer’s shop in Soho – a craft related event. Craft lager and quality clothes in perfect harmony…
If you get the chance and you like quality well made lager full of natural ingredients and which is full of flavour check out Saint Premium British Lager. For more pictures and more info about what was my kind of event visit Saint Presents A Craft Evening!
I captured this picture of a Bradley Manning supporter outside the US Embassy in London during a recent demonstration on Tuesday evening. There is always something happening in London 24/7.
Me, yours truly William K Wallace the almost famous London blogger munching on a Valentine’s Fennel & Salami pizza at last nights event at PizzaExpress on High Holborn with Valentine Warner.
Valentine’s Fennel & Salami - soft fennel salami, passata, fennel seeds, chilli flakes, mozzarella, fresh fennel, rocket, lemon oil, lemon zest, grated Grana Padano.
Take it from me people this pizza which has been created by Valentine is truly delicious…
During a recent ramble around London’s East End checking out the graff I found this amazing piece by ROA a legendary street artist from Belgium on the gates of the Old Truman Brewery – a stones throw the famed Brick Lane!
Later on in the day I stumbled upon the man himself ROA creating his latest piece a fucking absolutely huge hedgehog on Chance Street, located beside Shoreditch High Street Station – what buzz watching a legendary artist like this in action!
You can check out some of ROA’s amzing work on his flickr page and some more pictures from my East End of London Graffiti walk.
