Do you need a place to “work from home”

Life has suddenly become more complicated!  No one can travel from the USA or Europe and so no one is coming to London on holiday and we have had a rush of cancellations.  We now have two lovely apartments which are likely to sit empty for some time. During the CoronaVirus epidemic we are making a new offer.  We can provide an ideal place to set up your “work from home” office. Or, in the event of you needing to “self isolate” we can offer a safe and comfortable environment in which to sit out your period of isolation.  Special low rates for this period of uncertainty.

Last few days of the British Museum’s Hokusai exhibition

The British Museum tells us:   “Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) is widely regarded as one of Japan’s most famous and influential artists. He produced works of astonishing quality right up until his death at the age of 90″. This is an amazing exhibition which revealed what a wonderful man and artist he was.  I will go again before it closes.

Italian guests glad of some cooler Summer weather

We are having very changeable weather – one minutes it is glorious sunshine and the next it is raining.  The garden is very happy but the tortoise less so.  Recent visitors from Italy told us how relieved they were to get to the UK as temperatures in Italy had been reaching over 40 degrees and it had been totally exhausting.  What a reversal – tourists from the South of Europe coming to London for the weather!

July celebration

On 8th July the Fancy Fair returned the The Green. This is was amazing community event. The roads were closed and we enjoyed music, dancing, children’s activities, street food and lots of wonderful stalls.  There was even a Big Wheel, providing spectacular views right across London. Well done the hard-working organisers at www.N21.net
