    A home from home.

    On this occasion my reason for visiting was to catch the Milton Avery Exhibition.

    A new name to me, but well worth checking out.

    And as a 'Friend' of the RA one is supporting their good work and it is lovely just being able to visit as often as one can.

    It’s a wonderful small museum just off New Bond St and Regent St. I’ve been meaning to go once they successfully merged the two homes of famous musicians. It’s well worth an hour an we can’t wait for the reopening in 2023. Treat both homes equally and you’ll learn so much. We did!

    My wife & I took our kids and grandkids yesterday(sunday) to lay some flowers to pay our respect to her majesty the queen. We were so impressed with the organisation and dedication of the staff working at the park to make sure everyone had the opportunity to lay flowers and view other tributes that had been left.

    Morning tour of the Mayfair area with Paul Olins from London Greeters which is a terrific (and free) volunteer based service provided typically by residents of city areas. Paul displayed his in depth knowledge of the historic Mayfair district, we left with a far greater understanding of how the area developed, history of the aristocracy and architecture. We were even able to see the London town home where Queen Elizabeth II was born, a poignant moment given Her Majesty passed just a day later. Finished the tour with a coffee at Mayfair Mercato which is a unique food court housed in a former church. Highly recommend the London Greeters service.

    Bond Street has a very nice variety of shops. As Bond St is situated at the Western end of Oxford Street, I found it to be a little less crowded than the Oxford Circus area (albeit still busy on a hot afternoon), so the shopping experience was slightly more bearable.

    If you are a fan of shopping, I would definitely recommend a visit to Bond Street.

    Excellent place to wander and explore the fabulous shops each displayibg their specialist products and services. Still the traditional shoe polishing service half way along the arcade. Most shops' products are extortionate prices - but that's exactly what you expect. Well worth a visit.

    If you are coming to London you will almost certainly come to this central part of London which is known for its shopping, eating and entertainment. There is so much to see you will need more than a day. Definitely walk down Oxford Street, Regent Street, Bond Street and Piccadilly then wander through the streets of Soho and Mayfair before heading to Covent Garden. Try getting off the main roads and you will find hidden churches, green spaces, shops, cafes, pubs....

    Berkeley Square is a lovely oval shaped park with London Plane Trees in Mayfair in London W1. It was laid out, extending further south, in the mid 18th century by the architect William Kent. There are a good number of benches available upon which to sit and read a book or to just take 5 minutes green rest in the City of Westminster. The park is surrounded by some beautiful house, many of which have been (are) homes to the rich and famous. There is an unusual English Heritage 'Blue Plaque' on the shelter in the centre of the square which I can only assume is something to do with the Earth's rising waterline due to climate change (See photo). In summary a nice park in a very pleasant upmarket part of the City.

    What an interesting statue located at Marble Arch near Hyde park.

    You don't know how big it is until you get up close and personal.

    Standing at 10 metres high , it is the largest free-standing bronze sculpture in London.

    We saw it while doing the London site seeing bus tour.

    I've seen every Warhol exhibit I could since the retrospective at MOCA in LA in 2002, including the recent exhibits at the Whitney and the Tate, as well as the Banksy/Warhol exhibit in Amsterdam.

    This exhibit is smaller than the LA retrospective but not to be missed, as it presents the complete series of many of Warhol's most outstanding works: a complete Mao, a complete Marilyn, the complete Muhammad Ali series, as well as a complete set of the very rarely seen Endangered Species series. And a complete Beethoven quartet, as well as a wonderful Ingrid Bergman triptych.

    It also includes his diamond dust icon series, ending with the absolutely fabulous "shadow" self-portrait. And, the complete Cowboys and Indians series. Especially interesting were his sketches and drawings from the 50s when he was working as a fashion illustrator. Don't miss the "Tattooed Lady" with his phone number in Murray Hill advertising his services.

    The gallery on two sides of New Bond Street is a lovely space and the works are beautifully exhibited. The staff were incredibly welcoming, and the man we talked to was brilliant. I learned much from him in our hour or so encounter. He was welcoming and unpretentious, while being immensely knowledgeable.

    Grosvenor Square has been transformed into a memorial for the victims of Cancer. The garden is filled with illuminated roses, each with a tag which is personalised to the people they are in memory of. Extremely touching and moving.

    My partner and I were waiting for our coach and wanted somewhere to sit, lovely area. Beautiful statues and pleasant, peaceful place to watch the world go by.
    Free to enter and sit, close to the underground and lots of buses, local to shops.

    N.B. lots of wasps this time of year🐝

    The is a fantastic experience. Starting with a small presentation in the nearby hotel followed by the tour of the underground station at Down Street.
    Without giving too much away the tour guides were very knowledgeable and took on on a tour through the old station and through history
    Not too cramped or claustrophobic but dark and dusty in parts with 100+ steps on the way in and out.

    Nice sculpture which as a sense of fun as you can sit between the two and have your photo taken. Fun watching the amount of people who do this, my wife included

    Savile Row runs parallel to Regent Street and is considered the place to go for a suit if you are a gentleman.

    There are some exclusive stores in this road and it would be very easy to get kitted out with clothes. At a price....
