Anatole's blips

By anatolebeams

Kensington Olympia

Here for the Destinations Travel Show. The place is stuffed full of travel operators, Cruise companies and Adventure travel ideas. 

The venerable exhibition complex has just had the green light for a £1bn development from H&F Council. What this means is currently rather unclear apart from plans to squeeze in hotels, restaurants, theatres and cinemas into any underused space on the 14 acre site. But at least it appears that the 130year old Victorian framework of this glorious palace of marketing is to stay, along with the Art Deco frontage.
