Hot hot hot




London isn’t the best place to be when the temperature soars and a hot Monday afternoon in Spitalfields required frequent stops for cool drinks and ice creams.  This is such a fascinating area of the city, though, and we felt lucky that we could enjoy the sunshine and not have to return to an air conditioned office.




Such a mixed area, with modern glass and steel towering above small brick houses, interspersed with art installations and plenty of interest at street level.




We love the surprises which appear in between the office buildings.




A daylight visit to Dennis Severs House offered an altogether different experience to the December candlelit evening we spent there last year.




After a long and sticky day, though, Aperol Spritzers chez Jamie at Fifteen were just the ticket.




And when we returned to our apartment, a few fans were waiting to greet us!

A different side of the city
