Southampton Row, WC1, The Way We See It.

“We might have done a part of this road by accident already this week. Southampton Row runs from Russell Square down as far as Holborn. I’ve long thought that Kingsway went all the way up to the junction of Theobalds Road, but how wrong I was!

It’s a road of such varied architecture it’s quite amazing. Just raise your head and you will see such variety. It contains the Cochrane Theatre and the Central School of Arts.

My favourite place, however, is Falkiner Fine Papers, one of those incredible shops that you would just walk past if you weren’t looking . Inside it’s a treasury of not only paper, but everything you would ever want for bookbinding.

The street is nearly always thronging with locals, students and tourists – a crazy mix.”
