THOUSANDS OF MEMORIES MADE, AND COUNTING

For @lukwitzmihalovic we arranged 11 days of London. Apartment, rickshaw ride, personal chauffeur and even private yoga lessons were all included. Thanks Meme - it was a pleasure to get to help create your memorable trip 💛 ...

It is said that the architect of #theshard #renzopiano took inspiration from old drawings of London when we were a city of church spires.

This angle of London's tallest building mirrored by #stgeorgethemartyrchurch reflects that idea beautifully, as the spires of old and the new echo each other.

Different times, same dimensions.

Wandering around London (particularly the North and the West)
you may notice five story housing blocks with red brick facades inscribed with the word 'mansions'.

Pictured here are some of our favorites 'The Montague Mansions' in Marylebone

What is a mansion block?

Mansion blocks were originally built to offer luxury high-density housing to wealthy individuals. Most English mansion blocks were built between 1880 and 1910, after the industrial revolution.

Wealthy individuals did not traditionally inhabit flats, they would reside in houses instead but after the revolution, there was a huge increase in the population meaning houses were more difficult to obtain.

Whilst flats were not viewed as appropriate housing to the wealthy, developers saw the opportunity in the huge demand for pied-a-terre in London and as there was scarce land available in the most desirable postcode areas, that demand was not being met.

The scheme was a huge success and thereafter many mansion blocks were built across London. To this day they are some of the most desirable residences in London due to their ornate facades, grand hallways, high ceilings and heritage appeal.

A two bedroom apartments in 'Montague Mansions' will sell for around one million pounds.

Seeing England win the Euros against Germany this week was epic.

Especially when you think of how it will impact thousands of young girls, showing them football and success is not exclusively for men.

We went down to the Kirby estate in Bermondsey to celebrate.

London boasts countless historical characters but we also have many fictional characters that get
their fair share of attention (think Harry Potter, Paddington, Bridget Jones and Doctor Who).

Arguably the most enduring of them all is Sherlock Holmes.

The iconic detective was created in the Victorian era by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. By the 1990s he featured in over 25,000 stage adaptations, films, television productions and publications. The Guinness World Records lists him as the most portrayed literary human character in film and television history.

Visit Baker Street station to spot his silhouette on the tiles and a 3-metre-tall bronze statue at the exit. Turn the corner to visit the 'Sherlock Holmes museum' - a few doors down from number 221b as the museum owners couldn't secure the exact address 😂

The sensational curves of the McEwan Hall in Bristo Square, Edinburgh.

Built in 1896, it houses an auditorium that seats 1,700 and is used as a ceremonial hall for graduations from the University of Edinburgh.

This August it will be buzzing with theatre and comedy performances as part of the @edfringe.
