It is no secret that I'm totally in love with London. There's always something to do or see, places to go, things to marvel at. When I have time one of my favourite things to do is wander around the city, doing that whole pretending you're a tourist thing. London is a city where you are always sure to stumble upon something pretty amazing. The trick is to keep your eyes peeled. Because London is such a walkable city sometimes it's fun to go wherever your feet take you. That's how you find the best surprises because you end up walking places you've never been before and when you do spot something awesome it's a surprise. And who doesn't love a surprise?
I recently spied this mosaic wall in a side street down by the River Thames. It's the history of London in tiles! After seeing these incredible Hitchcock mosaics a few months back, I'm starting to think that the city is full of these tiled hidden gems. Aren't they amazing? I wonder how long it would have taken to make.
The sections of the wall with the Queens are my faves.
