Yesterday we went to Walthamstow. This area in East London is slowly starting to become hip and trendy, still has a decent value for money when it comes to houses, that’s why many people are keeping an eye on it (and/or moving here).
I went to explore it, as I usually love to do with London areas I still don’t know. As all the rising area it still has some scruffy bits but it is a really nice place, with a cool vibe and a few fancy shops and bars. I especially loved the village, an historical conservation square with some very ancient houses perfectly restored. A little jewel.
Then, out of the blue, I discovered a magical place…
Actually I had heard about it before but never had the chance to visit it. I’m talking about God’s Own Junkyard.
It is a neon sign shop with amazing handmade pieces. I know, I know the same artist sells his creations at Selfridge’s (and this year also made a few windows) but this place, THIS place has such an amazing atmosphere. And there’s a café too! I had a tea and a cake with Viola surrounded by flashing hearts and sparkly letters.
You must visit it!
