After a decade of concrete and glass, and the loss of London’s quirky alleyways, could the city be rediscovering detail in its architecture? Here are three examples from within a hundred metre triangle of King’s Cross. Small steps, perhaps, but much appreciated when you have to walk the area on a rainy day…

    I stumbled acoss your Bryant and May books and then stumbled across your web site. I have never read a Blog and never commented on one, but I just wanted to say how much I am enjoy your obvious love of London.
    I meet a friend in London for a “day out” every couple of months, we do tourist things and go shopping , but if we can we try to see a bit of the “off the beaten track” London.
    In your books London seems to be as big a character as Bryant and May and your comments and pictures on your blog are lovely, Its almost like you are introdusing us to a member of your family.
