We did get the chance to walk around the fantastic roof garden on top of the Queen Elizabeth Hall. I loved the painted beds of the 'allotment'.
On the lower level, Stanley was drawn to Ben Kelly's Enclosure, happy to climb up the dry stone walls again and again and again.
I loved the contrast of all that urban concrete towering over this great little homage to the British countryside.
As we were on a mission to get to the beach, we only caught glimpses of many other things, including the giant Urban Fox, but I'm sure we'll be back to discover more very soon.
Dishoom is also joining in the festivities from May 13th, so it won't be a picnic next time, I'll be in there like a shot if I have my way!
It was also nice to discover that, Yorkshire lass and old family friend,
Clare Cumberlidge curated the Land areas plus a couple of the art installations. Thanks to Brenda (her lovely mum) for the tip off. I haven't seen Clare for ages, but it's down to her that I ended up in London in the first place, twenty one years ago. I took over her rented room in the attic of an amazing family house in Highbury for just £150 a month! I ended up staying there for three years during my RCA days and had a ball.
