This is a view of London that has a lot to recommend it ! It is from the top floor cafe of the Portrait Gallery, just behind Trafalgar Square. A couple of years ago I spent a night at a rather basic hotel not far away. I skipped the bland breakfast there, instead getting the day off to a rather luxurious start at the cafe here. It gets rather busy later in the day, so my top tip is as a breakfast spot.
And while we are on the subject of London recommendations here is one that I’ve yet to go to myself – The Dennis Sever’s House Museum The interior recreates the life of an 18th Century family of Hugenot silk weavers. I photographed the exterior while I was in London doing the 12 City Project, but didn’t have much time for visiting . Apparently it is especially atmospheric in the winter when the house is lit by candles.
And in the same part of London you’ll find Raven Row another quite intriguing art centre housed in some renovated Hugenot houses.
