    a day of wandering, sampling and admiring a beloved londinium. entries not quite complete and many of them first came to me from friends and then i tried them!

  • Pimlico

    1

    Neighborhood

    designers & antiques dealers frequent pimlico road for the shops, including gallery 25 (at no. 26), rose uniacke’s shop at 76-84, and daylesford (for snacks).

  • National Portrait Gallery

    2

    Art Gallery

    when it rains - and it will rain - then one could do worse than to immerse one self for several hours here. or several days. highly recommended. a ewan tip.

  • Waterloo Bridge

    3

    Bridge

    as part of one's morning perambulations.

  • Turbine Hall

    4

    Art Gallery

    "explore the space!" too many friends say that one must go here. and so one must. and so i did. evocative, eerie, inspiring, humbling, melancholy, triumphant.

  • Borough Market

    5

    Market

    when walking to the turbine hall, stop here. so says londoner johnny. busy and fun with lots of scrumptious options. expect lines, weekend crowds, but worth it.

  • St. John Bar and Restaurant

    6

    English

    the first stop whenever charlie returns to london. "have the bone marrow and parsley salad, all the other side dishes and a glass of manzanilla sherry or two."

  • Prufrock Coffee

    7

    Coffee Shop

    many swoon over this. did i swoon? did i swoon. after your coffee, might i suggest a wander to the barbican art centre for architectural ogling and culture?

  • Regent's Park

    8

    Park

    to the wolf enclosure that exists no more one must go to hear withnail recite "what a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties..."

  • Regent's Canal Towpath (St Pancras)

    9

    Trail

    of historical interest... to me. a worthy wander for a flâneur with miles to go before one sleeps.

  • The Shepherdess

    10

    Breakfast

    here where many a creative social media start-up had their most important brainstorms, over runny eggs and greasy fare did they find ideas to inspire & delight.

  • De Beauvoir Arms

    11

    Gastropub

    georgina says "sneak in early or sunday lunch before 2 pm." it can get pricey. often they have nettle soup! and sometimes live music.

  • Rochelle Canteen

    12

    Restaurant

    absolutely one of my favourite spots for afternoon lunch in the sun (as everyone dons a straw sun hat in the garden). exquisite fare served with a light touch.

  • Towpath Cafe

    13

    Coffee Shop

    unpretentious breakfast and coffee in the sun watching joggers by the regent's canal. should that not suffice, then nearby is the hackney bureau, a good plan B.

  • Victoria Park

    14

    Park

    i love this park. so many grand places. bisecting the park's western half is grove/lauriston road. follow it north for nourishment. fish house is a good choice.

  • The Palm Tree

    15

    Pub

    in the late hours, the alchemy of conversations, glassware, music and madame george - it all floats into the ether, that or the mystic, depending on the spirit.

  • Maryon Wilson Park

    16

    Park

    a pivotal component to antonioni's blow-up - here where the crime was witnessed and perhaps the obsession began. little has changed over the years.
