I really hope I got the Welsh name of this building correct in the post title - I have a sneaking suspicion I may have slipped an extra "d" or "y" in there somewhere. Anyway I wanted to give this really unusual and cool building in Fitzrovia its proper name. Otherwise I would have called it the Welsh Chapel, which is what it is. Built in 1889 this ornate fronted building has always intrigued me although I have never managed to see inside. Stuck in the middle of media and fashion land it seems a little out of place, like an architectural wedding cake. I think that's part of the reason I love it and of course it's in Fitzrovia which is also a bonus. Check it out - a little gem just behind Oxford Street.
An expat Aussie 15 years into a love affair with London, I decided to record some of the reasons I dig this city, with a key theme being the search for good coffee & food. Random musings with hopefully some appeal or use - if not, at least I'm having fun writing them! Enjoy.
