London city - the pretty bits

This is the Oxo building, not far from the National theatre. It is full of design studios and shops and is one of the prettier buildings on the Queen's walk.
If you keep walking east along the river you pass the Globe theatre, then a pretty brick pub built in the 17th century.

There are a lot of buildings I would call architectural failures in London, but interspersed between them are these old or ancient gems.

Exactly when did the ability to design nice looking budimgs die, I wonder.
