‘On a fine Sunday afternoon, the last of the warm and bright summer days, the kids and I decided to wander into central London for a walking tour involving history and sweet treats. […] We had a really good time! The tour was fairly fast-paced even though the area around St. James’s London is pretty small. I discovered all these random side passages to get between places. In addition, there were enough snack breaks and interesting historical anecdotes to keep my kids interested.’ – @justgo_places1

‘Yannick is a tour guide who really knows his stuff … he is very into history and guides you through parts of London which I can almost guarantee you won’t have seen before. […] You’ll find lots of photogenic little corners of London, arcades and shop windows, so make sure that you charge your camera. […] If you fancy a slightly different tour of London you really should give it a go, whether you’re a tourist or a Londoner I think it’s a lovely way to spend an afternoon.’ – @cookesarah
Every Wednesday I’m posting a photograph which highlights the whimsical nature of London. As a tour guide, I get to see a lot of astonishing things while researching my walks and I will use this blog series as a means of sharing these sights with you.
Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly, the Economist Plaza is one of my favourite spaces to discover public art in London. Used as a temporary exhibition space by St James’s resident art galleries, I was delighted to encounter three large-scale sculptures made by Eduardo Paolozzi during my last visit. Exhibited by Bowman Sculpture, the artwork depicted here is known as ‘Trishula’ and was made by the artist in 1966.
