Inspired by Danny Choo's excellent blog about life in Tokyo this will be the first in a series of posts about things I see and places I go in London.
Woburn Place by Euston station. This is a wonderful arcade where the Victorian store fronts have been preserved. It often features in period film and television productions as a result.
St Pancras station facade. The upper portion you can see here sits over the main station and is a hotel. The building was famously vacant for many years and has just re-opened amid much fanfare. It has been re-developed by The Manhattan Loft Corporation. Staying there is every Steampunk's dream.
The Cruciform Building. This is part of University College London/Hospital and used to be the main medical site. It is so called because of its cross-shape in plan. When it was built it was believed that ailments spread through bad air, so the cross shape maximized the number of windows which could be thrown open to admit the "fresh" London atmosphere.
I have no idea what this building is, but it looked nice. :-)
