We loved walking around Greenwich, finding them hiding in the park or along the side of the Thames, and discovering our favourite literary delights, celebrated in bench form for all to see. It was lovely to meet fellow book/bench nerds along the way, and share our findings and favourites.
So, I’d like to share with you some the benches we found along the Greenwich Trail and tell you that they are truly wonderful, and if you haven’t seen any of them, go to Gordon Square Gardens this weekend and see these truly gorgeous works of art. If you’re feeling lucky, you can try and nab yourself one in the auctions.
I’ve saved one of my favourites from the Greenwich Trail for last! Who couldn’t love a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy themed bench?
Aren’t they just the most beautiful pieces of art? Don’t forget, this weekend really will be your last chance to see all 51 gorgeous benches in one place. And if you fancy your luck, the proceeds from the sale of each one of these goes to a great cause, the National Literacy Trust!
