Hitchcock at Leytonstone

© London Underground
Today (Tuesday) I had cause to visit Leytonstone Underground Station (Central Line, East London). It isn't a place you'd expect to be either a shrine or an art gallery, but it's both. When, years ago, London Underground refurbished the pedestrian underpass into the station, it employed an artist to design mosaics showing scenes from Alfred Hitchcock's movies, in homage to a successful local lad. If you're a fan, it's worth a visit. But don't try to view during the rush-hour or you'll get knocked flat! To find Hitch, just look for the Underground sign....

Oh, I'm a huge fan. Just goes to show you that everything I like is in the UK. Or maybe everything I like is British? hmm...Fawlty Towers....

Fawlty Towers indeed! I think that's the last decent comedy show the BBC produced. Maybe you're an anglophile. There are a few.

Very interesting, thanks for the tip. I will definitely have to check it out next time I'm on that side of the pond.

Is Comic Shack still in the High street [opposite big Mac]?

I didn't even see Big Mac. I was looking for Matalan (blue jeans £8 and they fit! None of that crotch-down-to-your-knees nonsense)
