International award-winning photographer Rod Edwards has always been a pioneer and world leader in 360º virtual reality imagery and virtual tours of iconic buildings. He was recently commissioned by Visit Britain to shoot his “More London” project as part of the global campaign for the 2015 James Bond film, “Spectre.”

Thanks to this project, you can now visit some of London’s most iconic landmarks. SEEN invites you to partake of a virtual tour, where you can visit:
The Switch House, the new Tate Modern building designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron that opened to the public on 17th June 2016 as an extension to the original Bankside Power Station, designed by Giles Gilbert Scott in the 1950’s. Watch it here.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
