A little adventure to soak up some inspiration in the big smoke

We decided to go on a little adventure to London to see some art and get inspired.  We got a very early train to London and first stop of the day was The Breakfast Club at Angel to fuel up before our day of adventure.  I am a big fan of The Breakfast Club and love their food and cool venues.  I went for The Huevos Al Benny which tasted every bit as amazing as it sounded on the menu and looked when it arrived.
Excited for our day of bright lights, art and most importantly our breakfast!

After Breakfast we headed to Walthamstow Central to check out Gods Own Junkyard.  After some wandering then some helpful directions from a friendly local we managed to find this magical place.  Gods Own Junkyard is the work of the late Chris Bracey and is a collection of 'new & used neon fantasies, salvaged signs, vintage neons, old movie props and retro displays.'

Inside was utterly breathtaking, floor to ceiling, wall-to-wall neon, almost too much to take in, too beautiful to appreciate and definitely a whole lot of wow!  They have a café inside so you can grab a drink and sit surrounded by neon soaking up the kitsch and the fabulousness.  I would definitely love to have a little piece of neon in my house one day.
Wall to Wall and Floor to Ceiling Neon!

There was so much to look at and take in

Wish My House Looked Like This!
After all that neon we headed over to Tate Britain to see Conceptual Art in Britain 1964-1979 and then Tate Modern to see Performing For The Camera as well as exploring the perminent exhibitions.  It was so nice to spend the day looking at art and being inspired, a day in London is never long enough. 

I love a good photo cut-out
