Meet Stephen Wright, Artist and creator of “The House of Dreams”. The ground floor of his home in East Dulwich is open to the public and he lives upstairs, I love the contradistinction between his personal space and his artistic space…

Crate Brewery – Hackney Wick

crate5

Ok so I think it best that on this occasion I just list what I think is great about the Crate, so here goes; 1. The pizza is the best I have had in London, with toppings like ricotta, caramelised onions and courgette. 2. They have their own Brewery which has garnered much attention from the likes of Jamie Oliver and Truman Brewery, I don’t know much about beer so that’s all I can tell you, that and the labels look cool…

It’s jam packed on the weekend as Chatsworth Road is fast on its way to becoming Broadway Market…

These are just a few of my dream houses that I’ve seen whist cycling about Hackney and the City. I love all the old Huguenot houses around Spitalfields especially the one numbered ‘Eleven and A Half’ and random gothic mansions…

Ten Bells – Spitalfields

Situated on the corner of Fournier Street (one of my favourite streets in London, due to its proper Victorian-ness) and next to Shoreditch Church, the Ten Bells is where Jack the Ripper would meet the prostitutes who would later become his victims…

40 Winks – Whitechapel

I think most people have probably heard of 40 Winks by now but for those of you that haven’t, I have to share… this place is just gorgeous, utterly debonair just like the owner David Carter a renowned interior designer and true English dandy…
