  1. Alfred Hitchcock - Site of Gainsborough Studios

     Master of Suspense by Antony Donalson (2003)

    The other week in my unending homage to Alfred Hitchcock I went to have a look at his head. The huge, steel, semi submerged head designed by Antony Donaldson, measuring 25m/ 82f x 11m/ 36f x 9m/ 29f, stands in a courtyard surrounded by apartment blocks on the site of the former Gainsborough Studios where Hitch directed some of his early films. 

  2. Tea House Theatre

    The Tea House Theatre has quickly become one of my favourite tea rooms in London with a well deserved reputation for its delicious home baked cakes. The cakes are displayed on various tables round the cafe rather than at a central counter which compliments its charming and relaxed character.

  3. John Lewis - Roof Garden

    John Lewis opened his first store at 132 Oxford Street, London on 2nd May 1864. In celebration of the store’s 150th anniversary the roof garden and a special exhibition are open to the public from Saturday 3rd May 2014.
