1. Bathe in neon light at a gallery in London
There’s a whole lot of in-your-face art on display at this salvage yard in Walthamstow. If you happen to appreciate a good neon sign, well, you’ll be in heaven at God’s Own Junkyard. Its late owner, artist Chris Bracey, collected them over a period of 37 years, as well as crafting and restoring them. Some are on the super-seedy side, having featured on 1960s strip clubs and peep shows, while others are heartwarmingly nostalgic. The neon wonderland’s ‘Rolling Stones’ café serves cake and hot drinks, or something a bit stronger if you so desire.
