One can get very complacent when living in London as having so many historical landmarks a few underground stops away makes it easy to put off visiting them. This is until you realise that over the last few months you’ve hardly explored the city most people come to visit on their holidays so I donned myself head to toe in the latest Farrell Clothing range, grabbed a mate and a camera and went on a little morning wander around a small borough aptly named ‘City of London’.
TOWER OF LONDON
Tower of London is a historic castle that’s situated on the borders between the City of London and Tower Hill. Built by William the Conqueror in 1078 and used as a prison until 1952, the infamous Kray twins were one of the last prisoners to serve time here.
Another City of London landmark is Tower Bridge which crosses the River Thames and connects the Southwark bank to Tower Hamlets. Opened in 1894, Tower Bridge drew its fair share of criticism, some going as far as calling it ‘pretencious’ but it’s hard to deny its current iconic status.

Adjacent to the Tower of London is the Trinity Square Garden, an open space that’s home to the World War Mercantile Marine Memorial and surrounded by buildings that recall the rich British maritime history. Although often overlooked by tourists it’s one of many hidden gems that litter the area.
Farrell Clothing is owned by the famous pop singer Robbie Williams with the collection being inspired by his grandfather Jack Farrell. I actually talked about Farrell Clothing in my latest lookbook ‘A Lazy Shoreditch Afternoon’ and the comeback of the classic British style. The range is now stocked in selected Primark stores with designs that draw upon Jack’s strong values, timeless style and alluring personality.
The pieces range from heavyweight T-shirts, textured sweatshirts and thickly knitted cable jumpers and of course blazers that are really pleasant to touch and fit my body contours perfectly. The collection, which is priced between £8-£45 has something for everyone so make sure you check out the link below and keep an eye out for any Farrell branded products next time you’re in store.
