Sunday Sights

Beautiful Symmetry

Every Sunday I’m posting a photograph of an iconic building, location or view in London. As a tour guide, I take great pleasure in showing these world famous sights to visitors and this weekly blog series will serve as a virtual extension of my guided walks.

While having a stroll around Holborn, I was particularly struck by the symmetry of Garden Court Chambers (57-58). Dating back to 1730, the semicircular porch with colonnade shown here was only added later to house by none other than Sir John Soane himself!

Fun fact: Did you know that Lincoln’s Inn Fields is the largest public square in London?
