God's Own Junkyard | Walthamstow, London

In my previous post I mentioned that I visited a neon lights museum in Walthamstow on Saturday. It was not that easy to find but the challenge was worth it. Once I stepped into the warehouse, I was left speechless for a couple of seconds. Seeing these hundreds of neon lights shine at you, is quite an overwhelming sight. It's a bit like stepping out into Times Square for the first time. Definitely a unique experience.

The museum displays the creations and collections of Chris Bracey, the Neon Man, who recently passed away. He was an artist who collaborated with fellow artists and contributed his neon light designs to famous movies.

  2. I'm really impressed that you got to God's Own Junkyard! When we visited, Chris was still alive and holding court. There's also a great micro brewery next to it. It was fab to meet you and Juliet yesterday, hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip
