A few days ago I headed off to see the 15th annual Serpentine Pavilion designed by Madrid-based architects SelgasCano. I got completely lost in Hyde Park, was misdirected by the kindness of strangers and eventually two and a half miles later I found it. To say I was very pleased to see it coming into view was an understatement, by this time I was just a tad hot and a little grumpy, but all of that faded quite quickly as it simply made me giggle. It is the most fun building I have ever seen, with its secret corridor, stained glass effect and feel of being in a magical childrens story book.
And I felt for £8.00 (for clarity -the apple was mine and I had eaten a triangle) this welsh rabbit and cup of coffee, was grim, very grim.
There are some lovely stone benches that are shaded by high hedges and trees which are very cool and of course there is the park(s) to sprawl into, bring a picnic and let the day unfold.
