Where is it? #26…

The latest in the series in which we ask you to identify where in London this picture was taken and what it’s of. If you think you can identify this picture, leave a comment below. We’ll reveal the answer early next week. Good luck!

Well done to Jameson Tucker and Carol Stanley – it is indeed part of the facade of the Athenaeum Hotel on Piccadilly. This vertical garden – said to be the tallest in the UK when it was launched in May, 2009 – was created by French “architectural botanist” Patrick Blanc. It climbs 10 stories high and features more than 260 plant types covering some 260 square metres. The Athenaeum is located at 116 Piccadilly in Mayfair.
