    Wapping

    A secret area in London with excellent views for history lovers. Wapping is an area in east London, part of the former Docklands, about which lots of Londoners don't even know. And the ones who know, appreciate it a lot.

    The Wapping Project

    One of the best galleries in London, for real. My love affair with this gallery started through a lucky accident. I was flat hunting at that time when I saw a poster of a Guy Bourdin exhibition on the wall of some old building, which appeared to be a former Hydraulic Power Station, now the home of The Wapping Project Gallery.

    The Prospect of Whitby Pub

    The oldest riverside inn in the UK, The Prospect of Whitby was founded in 1522 and is the UK's oldest surviving riverside inn. The original flagstone floor survives and the pub also has a rare pewter-topped bar as well as old barrels and ship masts built into the structure. Most areas of the pub have spectacular views over the River Thames, including the beer garden and first floor balcony and terrace.
