the london discoveries – pt. 3: paxton & whitfield
Central London’s Jermyn Street in the heart of Westminster is probably most well known for its range of exclusive gentlemen’s outfitters, so finding a specialty cheese shop amidst all of this was quite a serendipity: welcome to Paxton & Whitfield.
the london discoveries – part 2: t&f slack
Walking through Notting Hill last weekend – and I don’t mean the tourist hell hole that is Portobello Road – I made another unique discovery, a shop combining classic British design with a colourful twist: welcome to T&F Slack Shoemakers.
the london discoveries – part 1: squint
I love doing things on foot, I think it’s the best way to discover any particular city. Whether it’s the off-the-tourist-track side streets in Jakarta, Ninh Binh, Tallinn, Havana or Budapest, as long as you keep your mind and eyes open, the effort is rewarded with either meeting someone fascinating, seeing something unique, discovering something new, or all three. Walking around London, a city with well over 25’000 streets, it’s easy to discover exciting things every time you set off.
