The promised pictures


Two houses by Hankar.




The Ciamberlani house could be visited.
















It bit further down the street the Wielemans house could be visited. Mister Wielemans liked art deco, his wife liked spanish architecture. This is the result.
















Hankar's own house is situated in the same street.




and Horta lived and worked practically around the corner.

I'm in love, the architecture of those houses is so beautiful.
Dank U wel, EvanG
(BTW do you know a good thread about art deco in Antwerp?)

Brussels looks just splendid: elegant and charming. It looks nicer, to me, than Paris.

I love those beautiful covered arcades.

Also, I really appreciate the images of the residential suburbs.

Great thread. Beautiful Brussels.

Your thread about Liverpool is also one of my favourites btw and makes me want to visit..I have never been to England, I am going in two weeks to London, I am excited about it; will be interesting also if there are some similarities to Belgium

If you can get to visit other places than London, do try!

London is like Paris - it is its own place - apart from the rest of the country.

England has some great, smaller cities: in the south, try Oxford or Bath or Bristol.

In the north, Liverpool - I would say, is a must see.

The Cotswolds in Gloucestershire, Yorkshire, and The Lake District in Cumbria - are more rural areas well worth a visit.
