This is the infamous gherkin in London. With its shape, the fact that it has the grave of a roman girl at its base and was built to replace the Baltic exchange building that was badly damaged by an IRA bomb; it is an unusual building on the outskirts of an unusual area of London. Whilst south east of here is the familiar city of London and its famous landmarks, its north east of here that becomes interesting. I’d been to London so many times (hell I was born there) so I wanted to find something different this time. This is the London that everyone knows but can’t find. Brick lane, Shoreditch and the surrounds make you feel that you are in a different city in different country. More next post.
