William Morris Gallery

Situated in a house built in the 1740’s and set in Lloyd Park, Walthamstow, the William Morris Gallery reopened in August 2012 following a fantastic redevelopment. It is the only public gallery devoted to Morris – who for a period lived in the house – and is home to many permanent displays as well as temporary exhibitions by visiting artists. A new cafe and landscaped gardens influenced by the designs of Morris make this a must visit in the area. It is also a mere stones throw from my house!

The London 2012 Olympics

The London 2012 Olympics. Years of planning and construction, bucket-loads of money and all over in two weeks…but it was bloody great. Despite many Londoners being full of cynicism prior to the event, it was a roaring success. I’m lucky enough to live pretty close to the Olympic site and also had tickets to a number of events.

Great Britain in the clouds!

Kingly Court

Kingly Court, Soho, London. Tucked away off Regent Street, and far lesser known than neighbouring Carnaby Street is the lovely Kingly Court. Full of boutique shops and independent cafes and restaurants, you may have passed by this area totally unaware of it’s existence.

Green Chain Walk

This walk in South East London from the River Thames at Erith to Falconwood is a short train journey from London Bridge and is an official Green Chain Walk, marked out by arrows and mileage posts. It passes through Lesnes Abbey ruins which date from 1179; once far removed from the city, now overlooked by council estates. It travels through Plumstead Cemetery and beyond, taking in town and country, passing dog walkers and ramblers and the odd conveniently placed pub.

Full details of this walk are in Time Out London Walks Volume One with more information on the Green Chain website.

Docklands Museum

Museum of London Docklands, Isle of Dogs, London. The museum, which opened in 2003 in an old sugar warehouse, contains artefacts and displays telling the history of the Thames and Docklands area, from Roman times to the closure of the docks in the 1970’s and subsequent development into a busy business district. Among the many exhibits, you can get an insight into the role London played in the transatlantic slave trade and you can wander through recreated narrow streets of 150 years ago with sound effects of drunken sailors.
