London Walking Tours    with Joanna Moncrieff

Do you know where these are?

London is surprisingly full of hidden artwork sometimes so tucked away that I do wonder if the only people to actually notice it are those on my walks.

Although my walk tomorrow evening is entitled Gingerbread and Tea a food & drink themed walk around Mayfair I will also take you off the beaten track and include a number of  these hidden sculptures – including some that always provoke a gasp from the group as they come into view.

The two that I have photographed below are slightly less hidden – not far away from fashionable New Bond Street – but still not obvious from the main road. Have you seen them before?

Mayfair Moon sculpture

Mayfair Sun Sculpture

They are entitled “Sun” and “Moon” and are by artist Richard Kindersley. The Sun sculpture is inspired by  the May solstice fairs which were celebrated in the area now known as Mayfair.

Do you want to discover more of Mayfair off the beaten track away from the main thoroughfares? It’s not too late to book a place on my walk tomorrow.
