St Luke’s is regarded as being one of the first Neo-Gothic churches to be built in London: the nave, 60ft in height, is the tallest of any parish church in London and the tower reaches a height of 142 feet

Six of Sir Gilbert Scott-designed red telephone boxes went pink to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The six pink telephone boxes are adorned with the Union flag, diamond dust and the message “Long, Live, Life, Love”. Designed by street artist Ryan Callana
