The Corner Room (Restaurant)

London by Constantin Bjerke

A great place for an informal lunch or dinner while in East London. It’s one of Nuno Mendes’ projects and it is housed in the impressive Town Hall at Bethnal Green. We filmed with Mendes in his kitchen when the restaurant first launched.

Address
The Corner Room | Town Hall Hotel, Patriot Square, E2 9NF | London

Old Vic Tunnels (Event) (Music Venue) (Art)

London by Constantin Bjerke

The tunnels are a Crane.tv favourite. We have used the space as a backdrop for several films including a music session with The Civil Wars. The tunnels have a great story behind them and feature one of the only legal graffiti walls in London on their Leake Street side which was championed by Banksy back in 2008.

Address
The Old Vic Tunnels | Station Approach Road, SE1 8SW | London

Dover Street (Place)

London by Constantin Bjerke

Dover Street is the true creative hub of Mayfair and a breath of fresh air driving straight through an area often perceived as stuffy. Landmarks such as the wonderful Dover Street Market (don't forget to sample the fresh carrot cake at Rose Bakery on its 4th floor) on very effectively pull creative people towards the area which equates to plenty of street style to appreciate. Our Crane.tv offices are also located on Dover Street, naturally adding to the street’s charm!

Dover Street | Dover Street, W1 | London

Number 9 Bus (Transport)

London by Constantin Bjerke

The number 9 bus is the last of London’s old Routemasters. It’s a reminder of how far London has come over the years both in technology and design. The route itself is also one of the Heritage routes going past all of London’s key attractions such as Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park Corner and the Royal Albert Hall and the buses are still run by a traditional conductor which is fun and keeps things personal. It is a quintessential London journey.

Battersea Power Station (Architecture)

London by Constantin Bjerke

Even if you have seen it hundreds of times it will still stop you in your tracks. A great piece of architecture and apparently the largest brick structure in Europe.

Address
Battersea Power Station | 188 Kirtling Street, SW8 5BP | London
