Welcome to a brand new Feature on the Phoenix Remix! One thing we really enjoy writing about is Travel and we have decided to expand on the writing we are doing about the topic! Whilst we are still keeping in the tradition of making our Tuesday Lunchtime articles inspired by a book it is also going to welcome Travel Tuesdays!
I have lived in London the majority of my life and it is a city that I have always been fascinated by because it doesn’t matter how many time you visit, you see something new.
Our brand new article is inspired by questions from a book called London Journal by Paperchase and each week we will look at different areas and topics about London! So, I hope you enjoy and lets kick things off!

This Weeks Topic: Best Places for Graffiti
I think these days Graffiti is more like a work of art then anything else and in London there are some fantastic places to see some really impressive art work. I am always on the lookout for interesting images and here are a few locations that I have come across some really great pieces.
I really like the skate park area on the front of the Southbank it is a place that is used a lot for photoshoot’s because of the highly bright colours that are created through all of the art. There are some great art pieces that pop up here – you have to look for them, but placed against the skateboards in the foreground it’s pretty cool.
I really like Camden and it is a really quirky, creative place. Whenever I go there, something new is always on the walls to see. I always like walking down the high street trying to find out what someone else has added always a really interesting location.
This is also known as the Graffiti Tunnel and it is not hard to see why. Out of all the locations for street art in the city, I would say that this is one of my favourites – the walls change so often and there is always something really interesting to see. The artwork is really effective and so well done that I always walk down there taking photos.
