While walking around London this weekend, the family and I stumbled upon Newman’s Passage in Fitzrovia. It’s a small mews that links Newman and Rathbone Street. If you enter by Newman Street you get spat out just under the Newman Arms pub (which is very cosy).
As well as being a very atmospheric little place, it also had a tableau of seal, boy, angels and green shed. I really have no idea what’s going on but the kids liked it.
Also, it had some lovely stencilled letters high up on a wall, which I love.
And if you walk down there one day and wonder where you’ve seen it before…well it used to appear in the opening credits of Minder.
Alas, the crooked lampost is now gone. W
