Mayfair snapshots




The main purpose of our visit to London last week was to visit the Royal Academy. We did however manage to walk around Mayfair for a bit, as well having




lunch at Le Richoux, our favourite place when we visit the Royal Academy as it's across the road, and the food is good.




We were surprised to see that the place has had a make-over. It still retains its Art Nouveau feel but green dominates now (as opposed to red) and the whole place has a fresher feel





and a new bar








Some of the Christmas decorations are already in place





The Lynn Chadwick sculpture at Fortnum and Mason's still gives me pleasure




looking closer.




We were fortunate to see two more of Chadwick's sculptures during our visit. This one, Teddy Boy and Girl is exhibited at the Royal Academy





while this one, Winged Figures, Version I, is on show at Marlborough Fine Art, on Albermarle Street.





We walked through the Burlington Arcade





and then stopped at Carpo,





to drool over their chocolates and nuts.




It's one of our favourite shops on Piccadilly
















Regent Street looked, as always, magnificent.
