Again, greats photos of truly Imperial Capital.
Thanks guys! Yes that building is quite Italian in appearance isn't it, not usual architecture for here.

I suppose there aren't many differences on the outside, the refurbishment was mainly done on the interior.

If you don'd mind, take a look at this:

Ah okay that would make sense. I tried looking at it but it said the owner has stopped it from being displayable on SSC. Could you post the link and I'll watch it on youtube? Thanks.

Thanks for the vid PortoNuts! Wow - what expensive business but it certainly does look as plush as it comes. Good view across the Thames from it too if you're high enough to look over the trees.

You went to the embassies neighbourhood. And nothing like a chilly sunny day.

Fantastic pics as usual, and the buildings are outstanding.

P.S. What's your view on the Boris bikes?

Yes, the area known as Belgravia is lovely!

Regarding the bikes, I actually quite like them. As I like cycling I'm for them because I know they've been put there with good intentions. And the stations where you can pick the bikes up all have maps of the area of London in which you are which helped me a bit lol.

Thank you! That's my aim anyway - showing the not-so-well-known areas as well as the well-known.
