Gods Own Junk Yard

June 15, 2015

Gods Own Junk Yard has been on my ‘must see’ list for ages so I was thrilled when it finally happened. It’s fairly accessible, in the depth of Walthamstow, in an Industrial Estate.

I’m not quite sure I knew exactly what to expect, but boy was I pleasantly surprised. You will be entering a world full of neon lights, neon signage, religious icons, kitsch and the most charming outside space with urban jungle and eclectic water stream/fountain. Best of all there’s also a café with comfy seating and affordable café grub and drinks. It’s the perfect place to while away an afternoon, get inspired, take millions of photographs and hang out with friends.

But I think I should shut up now and let you see for yourselves.

Great Urban Jungle

I’ve seen many cable drums used as outdoor tables, but none of them in pink!

Loved this stained windows.

I cannot wait to return. It’s fun, relaxing and completely mad! People have weddings and parties there and they do bespoke neon signs.Apparently that’s their core business. During the week the space is closed to the public and it’s being used for photo shoots and other commercial events. But if you’re stuck where to go on a Friday to Sunday, this is your place!
