what else I saw in London
Must return to London, wasn't finished before Örebro happened!
To supernice Notting Hill, partly very chic, also with scruffier streets to explore.
Flow Gallery at Needham Road has a wide permanent collection of contemporary craft besides the exhibitions. Until November the gallery shows it's very first handbag show. "THE BAG SHOW is dedicated to the über-accessory" and a collaboration with the Royal College of Art's Fashion and Textiles department.
There are other galleries in the area and Portobello road is in walking distance in case of weekend market. Delicious cafe, Tom's, at a small square end of Westbourne Grow. Cakes and atmosphere, excellent coffee.
But the best coffee I've had, I think ever, is at Monmouth Coffee Co not far from Covent Garden. Small, small place, small small seats, but big coffee experience! Find a map here.
