Art Inspiring #London Walks – Thanks to Artist Tim Birkett

We're kicking off September with some work inspired by a London Walk…








The artist is Tim Birkett. Tim joined us on the Jack the Ripper Walk in August and was so impressed by the tour and the locations that he went home and worked up the pieces above.

Tim says that he much prefers the country to the city and wouldn't usually use the urban environment for his subject. Such is the power of London Walks that we've turned a bucolic artist into a city boy!

Thanks for the paintings Tim, we think they are wonderful.

Thousands of people in the UK are searching for a missing loved one. Missing People is a lifeline when someone disappears.

In & Around #London… Musical Plaques

Monday is mute on The Daily Constitutional (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides and London Walkers.


Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.






Shaped like records, what better commemoration for a musical location? London's music-themed plaques, like dots on the stave of London's score, play a melody of incredible diversity from Spandau Ballet to Mozart…
