Flying the flag

I hear the current incumbent of the White House doesn’t like the new United States Embassy building in London. I can’t understand why. To my eye it is far more pleasing than the one in Grosvenor Square, plus it’s in Vauxhall, or at least Vauxhall/Battersea borders, and Vauxhall is one of my favourite London neighbourhoods.
Consider these exhibits:

The Embassy

The Embassy of the United States of America

The Embassy, detail

What, as they say, is not to like?

Moreover, it’s a riverside location:

High tide and swans

I love doing bespoke tours, so if you’d like to explore this area on foot with me, please use this contact form.

  1. Current occupant of the White House would likely prefer turrets and arrow slits. This new embassy looks like it put on a party dress.
