Breakfast in Mayfair

London Porches in Kensington, by Mark Wallis on

Elegant London

Waking up in the spring sunshine, stepping onto the balcony of my Nash terrace in one of London’s more exclusive squares, is a moment to savour. Until room service reminds me I have to check out. Set camera to Stun.

The architecture of London is arresting, diverse and chaotic. Baroque and Brutalist, side by side. I can’t turn a corner without snapping away. I’m a tourist who stops traffic to get the perfect view, carrying a legal disclaimer for the police (written by the police) in case anyone tries to interfere.

Just a couple of days in the capital, a surprise whistle-stop tour.

It’s so hot on Oxford Street, we buy chilled coconuts and drink the milk through a straw. Luxury in the dust! The sun sets on Soho Square, and we have to make our way back to Manchester. For all the noise and chaos, London is a difficult city to leave.

  1. great photos 🙂

  2. Love the pics, in particular the one of the entrances to the beautiful georgian hotel with the spectacular perspective. Makes me long for London.

    • Thanks, that’s my favourite too! Those grand porches are iconic, aren’t they? Thanks to movies like Oliver and Mary Poppins.

  3. I love the pictures of the architecture of London. I can imagine that it is difficult to visit without spinning into the ground taking picture after picture. Great job.

    • Thanks, London is the perfect subject for anyone with a camera. It’s a fascinating place, you can never be bored there.

      • I will have to put it on my bucket list. I felt that way in Italy, spinning and taking photos at a dizzying speed.
        Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. this is so beautiful! can’t wait to be there
