"It'll only take you five minutes to walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station to get to the British Museum" said Mr GBT confidently when we were discussing the route before my most recent meet-up with my blogging chum Lovely Grey. What he hadn't factored in was how easily distracted I am and disorientated if greeted by a choice of station exits....in the end I chose one, but not the right one. Thank goodness for that kind young man in the shoeshop who kindly sent me off again in the right direction once I'd realised that I was probably not going the right way! However, all was not lost....there's not a dull inch of street in that part of London.
A couple of years ago I began to notice that some of the tube stations have interesting features and if I'm not dashing through I endeavour to have a look. You can't really miss the offerings from Tottenham....the whole place is festooned with these colourful mosaics by Eduardo Palozzi. It wasn't a name I was familiar with, but I've since discovered that I have seen a piece of his work on a previous trip with LG. The huge "Newton" outside the British Library is also one of his.
