Ohh thanks very much !

I love Dan Cruickshank and his 80 Treasures series just makes me want to travel with the man to appreciate life through his eyes and learn from him so this is definitely something I will be doing.

Besides it's a good excuse to go get some beigals as well...

Hi Mark - if you do this walk and want lunch I really really recommend Dan Cruickshanks choice 'The Royal Oak' on Columbia Road - BUT you have to book as the dining room upstairs is lovely but small - I'm off there tomorrow for lunch and I struggles yestreday to get in when I rang to book. best Shaun:) http://www.timeout.com/london/bars/reviews/7952.html Also if you are there its great to get your family and friends photograph done free here Seamus Ryan has photographed loads of people - Peter Gabriel, Tom Stoppard - you don't pay for the shoot just the print afterwards:) this was one of our pictures we got a print of - we have it in the front window of our flat to keep the burglars away! http://www.sundayshoots.com/projects/The%20Portrait%20Booth/fi/Portbooth01113.jpg
