Mapshot: Maps in London

Date:

Our editor-at-large, MAPS MAPONYANE, was recently in London on business and also spent some time seeing what this great city has to offer

 

THE TATE MODERN

Because any visit to London has to include a visit to one of the greatest collections of contemporary and modern art in the world.

WHERE Bankside, London

WHEN 23 January

 

A BITE AT BERNARDI’S

Popped into Bernardi’s, a casual but elegant Italian restaurant and bar, for this delicious dish of pappardelle pasta and a fiery lamb ragu.

WHERE Marble Arch, London

WHEN 22 January

 

THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS

Standing at the entrance of the Royal Academy of Arts. I was there to see the exhibition of rare drawings by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele that commemorates the centenary of their deaths

WHERE Mayfair, London

WHEN 23 January

 

UNCOMPARABLE KLIMT

One of my favourite drawings from that exhibition – Gustav Klimt’s Portrait of a Lady with Cape and Hat completed in 1898.

WHERE Mayfair, London

THE BEEB

For anyone involved in broadcasting, visiting the BBC is something of a pilgrimage. It has brought the world some of the most memorable moments in both radio and television.

WHERE Portland Place, London

WHEN 23 January

 

BANK SEE

On the streets of Bank doing a shoot with talented young South African photographer now based in London, Nic Rawhani.

WALKING THE YARD

The new Coal Drops Yard building re-imagined by designer Thomas Heatherwick. Opened in January, it’s a beautifully curated retail space for food, fashion and design.

WHERE Kings Cross, London

COLOURING GREY

I’ve always loved the diverse art around London’s tube stations and there was something about the colour of the mosaic on a particularly cold and grey London day that brought a smile to my face.

WHERE Fitzrovia, London

WHEN 17 January

 

THE HUMAN STATUE

This London mime and street performer was amazing. He randomly appeared in the middle the street and didn’t move a muscle for hours.

WHERE Carnaby street

WHEN 23 January
