The story behind Kings Gate, Victoria Street

If you’re into photographing modern architecture, then Victoria Street is a must. There are several really great buildings here, plus the Nova complex further up towards Victoria Station. There are also excellent views from the bell tower of Westminster Cathedral, which comes with a fun ride in a rickety lift. And if you must photograph the old stuff, there’s Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament at the other end.

Kings Gate has a cool facade, which appeals to my love of pattern. The Zig Zag building next door is also interesting, although I’ve never got a shot of it that I’m really happy with. Windsor House is further down the road, towards Westminster.
