It’s a London Thing is our Wednesday series in which we turn the spotlight on a unique aspect of London – perhaps a curious shop, sometimes an eccentric restaurant, a hidden place, book or oddity. The subject matter will be different every week. The running theme, however, will remain constant: you have to come to London to enjoy it. It’s A London Thing.
If we had to pick just one London blog as our very favourite, then it would have to be Bollards of London.
God is in the detail, so they say. And Bollards of London is nothing if not detailed. As we flash through London hell bent on getting from A-B, head down, aiming and maiming as we go, we tend to miss those details.
It’s what we try to focus on here at London Walks – slowing down a little to point out the attributes of unnoticed London, attempting to render the everyday into something other, something magical, something fun, something new.
Bollards of London is the blog equivalent of this mission.
So consider not the lilies of the field, but the bollards of the street. Lovingly detailed, eccentric, funny and informative, it’s a great blog. And It’s A London Thing.
