Everything Important About London, In One Image


Well, not quite. There's no Londonist logo for starters. But this intricate design from Nick Patchitt of Nick Prints does contain a mighty caboodle of London icons. Everything from the boat race to Del Boy's van, and The Clash (twice). See how many you can pick out and, more importantly, what's missing?

Screen prints of the design can be ordered from Nick.

the thames itself surely! fantastic image though!

The Thames Barrier seems to be missing.

fab image. But think there should be a Fairtrade Mark logo squeezed in, since London is the world's largest Fairtrade city

Fulham FC

Nice idea although the lack of river thames is odd and the inclusion of the loathsome Tony 'warmonger' Blair is both baffling and nauseating.

Michal

Great idea. Crystal Palace transmitter and Alexandra Palace for v. 2?

Kieren Messenger

How very cool.

I personally cant' find the thames, OXO tower, Millennium bridge, Marble Arch or any of the royal parks.

I think Buckingham Palace is there, or is that Somerset House? (top left, ish)

MH1984

Love this, every time I look I see something I missed the first time

Would like to add:

The Crystal Palace FC Eagle (or the Crystal Palace itself!)

The Shard

HoosierSands

No Trellick :-(

I am lucky enough to have one of these prints. Endless praise from friends looking at it.

I can't help think that, from the list of not-really-day-to-day-London cliches included, and the *real* London landmarks omitted, that Nick might have never actually been to London.

I also agree that the inclusion of Blair (and Thatcher and so on) is rather annoying.

Maybe I'm missing it - but I can't see any gay or lesbian couples on here? London't one of the great gay capitals of the world, and there are a lot of 'men and women in love' icons on here - I counted three at a glance. Anyone else see anything I'm missing?

justchauffeur

Fabulous! London is such an awesome city..I’ve been several times. Must-see destination!

lvcivs

Acid Jazz's missing!

guest

The maker of this inforgraphic should be EXTERMINATED! (missing Dr. Who)

Jordan

I'm sure I'm just missing it but does anybody else see any reference to Monty Python?

Wesjb

He should add a TARDiS, Monty Python foot and the Stig's helmet.

juandediossaenz

And The Who...????

@dhardingUK

The Union Flag is wrong!?

KZ

Its missing the TARDIS. That's the only Doctor Who reference that might work within the framework of this piece.

Battersea power station, River Thames, Shard, Immigrants?

Phil

What's missing? LED ZEPPELIN! At least I can't see it anywhere... Nor river Thames. And I think it's kinda important.
