Super colourful and vibrant 'Central Saint Giles' along the famous Shaftesbury Avenue in London City! 💘⁠ ⁠ Did you know,⁠ in my early 20's we'd save up all our pennies and catch a 5 hour coach trip to London into Victoria Station. It'd give us exactly 4 hours in the capital to visit 'Forbidden Planet', an awesome comics and nerd store, and then pinball across to Camden for lunch, leaving it till the last second to make it back to the coach home. As excited friends would bounce from shop to market, and punks leaning on the back of police vans would offer us 'happy times', I'd secretly be admiring the architecture, dreaming of one day exploring that exciting world. One of those buildings was Central Saint Giles! But did you know this was designed by the same Architect who would go on to design the Shard?⁠ ⁠ Occupying a pivotal position linking four of Central London’s main destinations, Bloomsbury, Covent Garden, Soho and Mayfair, Central Saint Giles is often described as a colourful splash of architecture in a concrete city. Designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano as his first work in the UK and completed in May 2010, it finished two years before the Shard. In history, the site was once notorious for being one of the worst slums in London, famously depicted by William Hogarth in his 1751 book as 'The Rookery'. Today the building hosts a number of high profile tenants including NBCUniversal, MindShare and Google whilst offering a nice undiscovered courtyard in the Summer to escape the shopping hordes of Oxford Street! As for me, it's bright colours are still my happy beacon letting me know the comic book store is just around the corner!

🍁 A U T U N M V I B E S 🍁 I had the best time walking around Pergola Hill Gardens and Golders Hill Park yesterday! Check out my stories for a few pictures of my Autumnal walk ... rain and wind included. After a very busy week, spending time in nature was exactly what I needed. If you haven't been to either of these places you need to check them out. P.s. Do you like my cosy hat? It was made by my lovely friend Andrea of Colourful Cuddles. #autumn #autumnvibes #walk #nature #recharge #unwind #hampsteadheath #london #londonparks #selfie #hat #cosy #ilovelondon #thelondonlife

Nowhere I’d rather be on a rainy day 🌨 While I love a long summer, I’m just a sucker for ALL of the seasons 🖤 are you team four seasons or do you prefer a year-round summer? ☀️

Sending wishes to all the hospitality businesses which haven been going into lockdown 🙏🏻 . It takes immense planning, support & time to close and then re-open especially with little to no notice. . Hoping for a quick transition and coming out stronger on the other side 💪🏻 . #kafi #kaficafe #signboard #handpainted

BIG City Architecture of striking glass and futuristic environment in central London @ - The Mayor's office, City Hall! 🖤⁠ ⁠ Did you know, ⁠just got back from two very much needed days in the Capital. Funny how 2020 has turned life upside down where spending two days at the office is a welcoming break! Not this one though (mine's just a bit smaller ), this is City Hall, the 'Beehive' next to Tower Bridge and its stunning central spiralling staircase. It was quite eye opening to see just how much the city has changed in these past months, lots of favourites gone but also new experiences and places to explore. Perhaps in someways 2020 is the modernising refresh we needed a nudge to take? The days of changing the meeting room number to the hot basement for the other office may be over but we've all embraced balancing our laptops somewhere suitable for online meetings. Suddenly my dusty webcam sat at the back of the draw is the number one selling electronic on amazon and I have two ginger cats as my PA! ⁠ ⁠ Trying to work out the rules here in the UK we currently find ourselves constrained by, it would be easier to navigate the Labyrinth! Working out if two family members who work together from different tier regions can meet for an after work drink has turned in to a philosophical debate on the pros and cons of alfresco dining in October (at least the beer stays cold )! For me, this is actually yesterday sat on the train home back to the countryside and the two cats, who I really should teach how to put the kettle on! Stay safe friends and have a great weekend! ☕⁠ ⁠ Follow for more!⁠ @365daysofcube 📌⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ #openhouse #365daysofcube #toplondonphoto #thisislondon #londonfashion #londonsbest #london_gurus #architecturedaily #VisitLondon #LondonPhotographer #whyifly #photoshoot #photosofengland #pursuepretty #prettylittletrips #allwhatsbeautiful #prettylittlelondon #visitlondonofficial #thelondonlife #londonphoto #lensbible #citygrammers #cityunit #london 🇬🇧 #tourtheplanet #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #openhouse2020 #architecturestudent #architecturaldesign

The National Gallery is another London treasure. I recently booked a last minute ticket as I had fond memories of my first visit. As I walked through the galleries I realized my taste in Art has definitely changed over the past two years and didn't appreciate the older pieces as much as I used to. What kind of Art do you like? The @nationalgallery is free to visit with pre-booking required. Each gallery had a security guard who made sure people were following the one way system and rooms did not get too crowded - the Van Goghs are very popular! 😉

'HALO' by Kimchi & Chips, an amazing kinetic artwork of light, mist and technology! - @ Somerset House in London, 2018⁠ 🇬🇧⁠ ⁠ Did you know, down by the Thames in central London, just over Waterloo Bridge on the Strand is one of London's hidden gems. A giant Georgian courtyard, built on the site of a Tudor palace belonging to the Duke of Somerset in 1776 stands Somerset House. Today a building of the arts and education, it hosts an array of cutting edge shows, historic adventures and large scale art in it's central courtyard. Largely accessible to the public with great coffee shops, in 2018 it hosted Kimchi and Chips, a Seoul based art studio founded in 2009 by Mimi Son and Elliot Woods. 'HALO' featured 99 robotic mirrors that followed the path of the sun, beaming columns of light into a water vapour mist, that when the wind was still, would illuminate a giant ring of light floating in mid air. The natural elements of light, wind, air and water had to coexist in harmony allowing the ring to live only for a few delicate moments. It was quite spectacular! ⁠But did you know, the arts have had a home in the courtyard for over 240 years?⁠ ⁠ The North Wing of Somerset House was initially fitted out to house the Royal Academy, the Royal Society and the Society of Antiquaries starting in 1779. It would go on to house the Naval Office, the Tax Office and more recently Inland Revenue. Thankfully the courtyard found a new use, from the car park it was, to a public area of artwork and play with dancing water fountains and large exhibitions like HALO each Summer! Can you find the secret entrance on Victoria Embankment? (There's coffee at the end, promise! ) 💙⁠ ⁠ Follow for more!⁠ @365daysofcube 📌⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ #kimchiandchips #somersethouse #365daysofcube #igerslondon #londonsbest #london_gurus #london_city_photo #toplondonphoto #unlimitedlondon #londoncityworld #travellingthroughtheworld #beautifuldestinations #londonforyou #ig_color #igworldclub #london 🇬🇧 #bestcityintheworld #ig_europe #visitlondonofficial #thelondonlife #awesomepix #whyifly #architecturelovers #architecturedaily #londonbylondoners #artworks #london4all #artistsofinstagram #artlovers #tourtheplanet

Does anyone else get this happy when appreciating Art? "Sm-eyesing" on my first post-lockdown Gallery visit in the Tate Modern which is an absolute gem 😍. The Collection Route is free to visit and requires pre-booking. Following a one way system you will see incredible pieces of art! Temporary exhibitions can be visited through buying a ticket in advance. I'm going back to admire the Andy Warhol collection soon (on until 15th November ). The @tate Modern is open daily from 10 am until 6 pm. Good Covid measures in place so I felt safe and comfortable during my visit. #art #artlovers #gallery #tatemodern #smeyesing #happytime #joy #appreciation #fineart #modernart #London #visitlondon #staycation #wanderlust #exploring #citytrip #cityvibes #southbank #thelondonlife

Swipe to find out more about it. The @sciencemuseum is currently open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 10 am until 6 pm.

4 lata temu, Hyde Park w Londynie. Wszystko super, tylko akurat tamten weekend mieliśmy spędzić we Wiedniu, ale… spóźniliśmy się na samolot. Mogliśmy wrócić do domu i uznać ten weekend za stracony, ale skoro byliśmy już w Londynie, szkoda byłoby tego nie wykorzystać.

Up St Peters Hill alongside the Salvation Army to St Paul's Cathedral on a sunny Sunday in the City! 😎⁠ ⁠ Did you know, ⁠walking over the Millennium Bridge in Central London with an early morning coffee on a Sunday, you'd generally have the city to yourself! Lockdown wasn't the first time these streets have been empty. You can walk down the middle of Piccadilly at a brisk 7am on a crisp winters weekend day! As the path rises up away from Thames bank towards St Paul's gleaming in the sunshine above you, you pass the international headquarters of the Salvation Army. Founded in 1865 in London by the circuit-preacher William Booth and his wife Catherine in the The Blind Beggar pub in Whitechapel, a pub with a long reach into history itself (but that's a story for another day )! Did you know, the organisation is present in 131 countries operating shelters for the homeless, disaster relief, and humanitarian aid to developing countries.⁠ ⁠ ⁠In 1917, 250 Salvation Army volunteers travelled to France to provide supplies and baked goods including doughnuts to Allied & American soldiers. Women who served donuts to the troops fried them in helmets and were known as "Doughnut Lassies". They are widely credited with popularising doughnuts in to the United States and National Doughnut Day is now celebrated on the first Friday of June every year!⁠ That's one date that's going on next years calendar! Salvation Army volunteers who fund raise at Christmas, especially in the states, are known as 'Red Kettles' in a tradition that started in the great depression. Seen as the oldest annual charitable fundraiser of its kind in the US, today the Red Kettles raise well over $100 million each year! Amazing! 💘⁠ ⁠ Follow for more!⁠ @365daysofcube 📌⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ #salvationarmy #stpaulscathedral #365daysofcube #toplondonphoto #thisislondon #londonfashion #stpauls #architecturedaily #VisitLondon #LondonPhotographer #whyifly #photoshoot #pursuepretty #prettylittletrips #thelondonlife #prettylittlelondon #visitlondonofficial #tlpics #londonphoto #lensbible #citygrammers #cityunit #tourtheplanet #london 🇬🇧 #ig_color #igworldclub #LondonIsOpen #london4all #londonCity #LondonCityWorld

[POL⬇️⬇️⬇️] After 15 years in London I finally visited Kew Gardens last Sunday. And I was blown away. We spent solid five hours wandering about and still didn’t cover the whole area. Amazing, stunning, enchanting! And I am now obsessed with the water lilies 😍😍😍 . . . . W zeszłą niedzielę, po 15 latach mieszkania w Londynie, nareszcie odwiedziłam Kew Gardens. Nie miałam wyobrażenia jak wielki jest to obszar! Łaziliśmy przez pięć godzin a i tam nie zdołaliśmy zobaczyć wszystkiego. Ma pewno będę wracać do Kew! . . . . . . #sunnydayinlondon #creativelondon #londonvacation #thelondonlife #somewhereinlondon #londonbyday #mylifeinlondon #loveinlondon #morninglondon #londonlove #london_enthusiast #kew #kewgardens #royalbotanicgardens #waterlillies #waterlily #glasshouse #lovebritain #loveengland #wakacje2020 #ogrodbotaniczny #londyn #londonwalker #pieknastronawielkiejbrytanii #zwiedzamyuk #inlovewithlondon #londontoday #londoninstagram #beautylondon #sundaybest

Underneath the world famous Tower Bridge on the river Thames as the sun sets - It's amazing watching it open! 🇬🇧⁠ ⁠ Did you know - ⁠The iconic London Tower Bridge is one of the most recognisable places on the planet and widely considered the most famous bridge in the world! When the decision was taken to build a bridge, a design contest was held to choose the best design. Over 50 were submitted, some close to what was built and some that were absolutely bonkers, it was even going to be a tunnel!⁠ ⁠ The bridge is 800 feet long with each tower 65m high, built up on piers in the Thames. The central roadway span of 200ft between the towers is split in half which can be raised to an angle of 86 degrees to allow river traffic to pass under, with each section weighing more than 1,000 tons! The walkway over the Thames was just another pavement bridge crossing in Victorian times with shops and stalls to buy things on your way over. It was also a place to have a drink on your way back home at the end of a long day ... depending which way you were walking of course! 🥂⁠ ⁠ Follow for more!⁠ @365daysofcube 📌⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ #towerbridge #towerbridgelondon #toplondonphoto #365daysofcube #thisislondon #londonfashion #tfl #architecturelovers #architecturedaily #VisitLondon #unitedkingdom #LondonPhotographer #whyifly #photoshoot #photosofengland #pursuepretty #prettylittletrips #allwhatsbeautiful #prettylittlelondon #visitlondonofficial #thelondonlife #tlpics #londondecanted #londonphoto #lensbible #citygrammers #cityunit #sunset #voyaged #tourtheplanet
