Phoenix Garden

I discovered it by chance on the net and we determined to look for it when next in London. Phoenix Garden https://www.facebook.com/thephoenixgarden/ is situated between Soho and Covent Garden. We found it after some searching. It is a little oasis in the middle of the busy city.It is bordered by Large apartment buildings, The Church of St. Giles in the Fields and the Phoenix Theatre, and yet is utterly peaceful. It is purposely laid out to encourage wildlife and insects, with dense bushes and the odd pile of bricks. Frogs spawn in a little pond and comfortable benches invite visitors to rest in peaceful surroundings. We have returned there many times

The Umbrella Shop

When visiting London we like to stay in bloomsbury. After a solid breakfast in our hotel we often walk to the centre passing through Soho. At New Oxford Street we pass “The Umbrella Shop” James Smith & Sons. James Smith & Sons was founded in 1830 in Foubert’s Place. In 1865 it moved to its present place in New Oxford Street and has remained there almost unchanged. Apart from umbrellas, it makes and stocks Gentlemen’s canes and shooting sticks. The Umbrella Shop is known by all the Black Cab drivers, who learn its position as part of “The Knowledge”
