I’m very lucky to live in a city that has such history. I often walk to and from work and during my lunch break, where I try to wander down streets I’ve never been before. I think London is one of those cities where you could walk for a lifetime and still not see everything.
One of my favourite things to do while I walk is to really look around me and notice the city’s architecture – it’s so diverse. From Victorian buildings dating back to the 1800s to new skyscrapers such as Renzo Piano’s The Shard.
But I’m not just content to look. I have to photograph them too. So here are a few of my favourite buildings and, if like me, you’re a fan of architecture then take a look at my Instagram account – @LondonKirsty.
One of my regular walking routes takes me past the Foreign and Commonwealth office, which is right next to the Horse Guards Parade.
I absolutely love art deco and this is one of my favourite London examples.
This is just an architectural- lover’s delight. It’s like a chocolate box of beautiful buildings.
I’m not sure what this building is but it’s in Mayfair near the Royal Academy of Arts. I just love the gold, which glistens when the sun catches it.
There’s something quite mesmerising about The Shard. It really does stand out.
