Yesterday I met up with the lovely Kaori from Twist and Turn for a Mystery Tour around London.. We started in the atmospheric Borough Market. A foodie and visual delight, particularly at Christmas..
Then we headed towards London Bridge and the Thames, past the Shard – Kaori thinks the Shard looks just like Sauron’s Tower from Lord of the Rings. She’s not wrong!..it looks almost unreal next to the traditional Georgian houses.
Just passed London Bridge is the Peter Layton Glassblowing Studio and Gallery. A warm (particularly given the freezing wind) and wonderful place where you can watch the artists at work as well as buy their work. (Go this week and there’s mince pies and mulled cider as well!) When the kids can be trusted I will be buying one of their exquisite baubles, they look like suspended bubbles of glimmering oil…covetable.
Their work ranges from Huge installations to delicate pieces of jewellery, including an artist specialising in sea glass.
