The best way of discovering London is on foot or from the top of a bus. No other large city is more rewarding to wander around, with a wealth of interesting things to see, both grand and intimate in scale. Watercolour painter Graham Byfield set out to capture the essence of the place, and his impressions are recorded in the London Sketchbook.

The cosmopolitan London

Britain’s capital is varied and cosmopolitan. It has no formally planned centre; each area has its own particular style and atmosphere. Central London is the setting for parliament, royal palaces, formal squares and grand hotels.
The city is the financial district, but it is also rich in architecture, including Sir Christopher Wren’s greatest work.

Graham Byfield.

Graham Byfield’s watercolors illustrate several books dedicated to the most beautiful cities in the world. During the first part of his career, this artist worked primarily in the Far East as a graphic designer and advertising creator. He then became closely interested in local cultures and various architectural styles. Today, Graham Byfield owns an art gallery on the island of Minorca and works as a full-time artist.

Marcus Binney.

A former contributor to Country Life and Landscape magazines and an environmental correspondent for Harper’s & Queen, he serves as The Times’ correspondent for architecture. Author of several works, Marcus Binney has been appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire and has been awarded the London Conservation Medal.
