I was invited to Tower Bridge for the launch party of the brand new exhibition This is London.
Aside from a welcome chance to slip off for an evening out, it gave me another opportunity to marvel at how stunning the bridge and surrounding scenery are at night.
This is London is one of our favourite picture books, a nostalgic and wittily drawn guide to the city, aimed at children but equally fun for adults.
Miroslav Sasek’s charming illustrations and engaging text line the West Walkway on 29 large-scale displays. They offer an insightful view of London life in the ’50s, set up against the backdrop of the modern capital.
It’s exciting to spot some of the landmarks featured in the book right through the bridge’s viewing windows and I look forward to taking the babes up to see their book come to life!
