Bunhill Fields Cemetery – burial place of Daniel Defoe, William Blake and others.
Kenwood House, Hampstead Heath – stately home bequeathed to the country, managed by English Heritage. Art gallery includes works by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Gainsborough, among many others. Very nice cafe, beautiful vista from the house and, of course, walks on the Heath.
Wilton’s Music Hall – rescued from dereliction- is now a theatre with bars and a cafe (not an actual music hall though!). Near to ‘Battle of Cable Street’ mural depicting locals taking on Oswald Mosley’s Union of Fascists in the 1930s. Also near to Jack the Ripper museum – a bit grim but very moving biographical information on the victims.
Turkish Restaurants Green Lanes Harringay – lovely cheap fresh food, many restaurants to choose from. Nearest tube Manor House, Piccadilly Line.
Zedel – very reasonably priced, beautiful, art deco restaurant with street cafe, cabaret and American Bar. Bang in the middle of Piccadilly.
Thank you Christine, I look forward to many more posts
