Last night we switched on the first 4 bridges for @illuminatedriver - a major art installation lighting up 15 bridges connecting North & South London & the world’s longest piece of public art. The use of energy efficient LEDs provides a sustainable solution for lighting the Thames. #london#art#illuminated river #publicart#bridges#Thames
This week Swan Upping is taking place. The annual census of the swan population on a particular stretch of the River Thames has changed from a mostly ceremonial event to an important element of wildlife conservation.
The Swan Marker’s iconic five-day journey upriver has been an annual ceremony for hundreds of years.
This drawing, by William McMillan, was presented to The Queen by the Royal Academy of Arts in 1953 as part of a coronation gift.
Doing the tourist thing in London. Nearly called this the Millennium Dome🦖

Thames crossings for cyclists/pedestrians:
West of London: 🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴🚴
East of London: 🚴🚴🚴🚴
The Rotherhithe cycling and pedestrian bridge for east of London was recently paused due to budget constraints.
So we're looking into how it impacts residents. What's your take? Does east of London need more crossings?

I love flying anywhere and by default always get a buzz around airports, even if it is just flying into London.
Heathrow is probably where we fly from most but London City is also great and on clear weather days you can get stunning city views.
Trying out a new London hotel this week, still a Leading Hotel of the World but not our usual selection - The Milestone in Kensington @milestone_hotel
