Curry Row
Went up the Hamble in the Solent galley Avery A again last night, with Philip Meakin (on left) coxing from the bow seat. This time, however, we had no paddles so over the narrow, winding last stretch to Botley we had to unship the oars and use them. Very un...

Museum of London, London Wall EC2
John Wesley's conversion was one of the seminal moments in English Protestantism, and is commemorated in several places including a plaque close to the site of 28 Aldersgate, where it actually happened, and this 1981 memorial close by, next to the Museum of...

Alban Gate,125 London Wall EC2
Tucked away in an upper walkway through the Terry Farrell-designed building that straddles London Wall is this whirling pair of dancers, though what the dance may be defies deduction. Perhaps you have to be listening to the music. The 1992 work, Unity, was ...

The National Firefighters' Memorial had something of a journey before it reached its final resting place at the top of the grand walkway from Tate Modern to St Pauls. It started life in 1990 as a monument to the firefighters of London who lost their lives i...

Old Lloyd's of London Building, Leadenhall St EC3
The old Lloyd's of London building was designed by the Imperial architect Sir Edwin Cooper in 1925, but the entrance facade is the only part to remain. At the top, the pediment is filled with a dramatic sculpture by Charles Doman representing Lloyd's insura...

The Queen's Row Barge Gloriana is back on the water after her winter hibernation. Today she took HM King George I to his palace at Hampton Court, as part of a season of events about the Hanoverians. Can't get enough of this. What a great sight. Also can nev...

Cornish Skiff
