The Worlds End for Westwood.


When travelling to London a certain destination is a must.
The Worlds End on the Kings Road in Chelsea is a Vivienne Westwood mega for devotes and as Mr Brown rates as one of the most obsessive fans.  We find ourselves climbing up those three little steps and through the magical portal, onto the tilted wonky floors and into this wonder world.  Much to his delight, Mr Brown was granted VIP status, by the gorgeous Lisa, and well some shopping ensued.

The Banqueting House, Whitehall.


The ceiling of the Banqueting House in Whitehall is another stand out in London.  These magnificent panels by Peter Paul Rubens are delight to view and after a hectic morning of walking make for a welcome rest as you lay on the floor of the hall in the thoughtfully provided bean bags and contemplate the ceiling whilst listening to tales on your audioguide.

British National Gallery


Seriously, how did these guys get so much stuff.  This gallery is jam packed with gems through the many ages.  To boot, much of it is hung on sumptuous fabric covered walls, that just enhances the whole experience.  Here is a little survey of some favourites.













































The National Gallery, full of International treasure.
