Art Deco Trail

After indulging in my love for Art Deco at the Apollo Victoria Theatre a couple of weeks ago, I decided to take myself on a little Art Deco adventure trail. London isn't mega famous for its Art Deco architecture, but there are some amazing examples dotted around, that are well worth a look. Check out this cute little map from the V&A for an idea of what is where. There are still a few I'm yet to see, but here are a few examples to get you started...

BBC Broadcasting House, Portland Place
Adelphi Theatre on the Strand
The Savoy hotel on the Strand
The Daily Telegraph building, Fleet Street
Daily Express Building...the lobby is stunning but not open to the public (boooo!), click here to see more.
The Ideal House National Radiator Company, on the corner of Argyle Street
The Hoover Building
