Thursday was landscape studio’s Christmas outing, which took the form of a south London based nosey and meal. We met at Stockwell station, and with the sun going down and then light just about holding up, we made our way to everyone’s favourite play street precedent: Van Gogh Walk. It’s clearly very well used and we got to see evidence of that, as it was school finishing time – a blessing and a curse.
Swiftly legging it from the hordes of screaming children, we made our way to the Fentiman Arms for a quick pre-meal tipple, and then were off to Brunswick House for dinner. If you don’t know what Brunswick House is, you should check it out; it’s a Georgian manor house sitting in the gorgeous (sarcasm) environs of the Vauxhall gyratory. It looks completely out of place, dwarfed by the hideous architecture round there, and the contrast is highlighted further when you get through the door. It’s a LASSCO architectural salvage building, so the inside is pretty extravagant and everything is for sale – most of it incredibly expensive. Think millions of lighting fixtures and miss-matched furnishings.
Trotters were eaten, wine was drunk, breeze was shot.
