LONDON | God’s Own Junkyard is located in an industrial estate in Walthamstow, far from the tourist attractions of Zone 1, but those who venture out to visit are rewarded with a sensory stimulation unlike anything else in the capital.

Walking into God’s Own Junkyard is like stepping into Las Vegas meets Blade Runner on steroids. Every surface of the family run warehouse space is covered in neon and bathed in light. The factory has produced neon for all kinds of clientele over the years, from Soho sex shops in the 1960s to Hollywood film sets and celebrities like Lady Gaga, the Beckhams, Jamie Oliver and Kate Moss. There’s neon here that’s been in Captain America, Eyes Wide Shut,Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Tim Burton’s Batman just to name a few. You can’t help but smile and be awed as you walk through the space and admire all that’s on display.

Sadly, founder Chris Bracey passed away after a battle with prostate cancer in 2014, and today God’s Own Junkyard is run by his wife Linda and sons Marcus and Matt. When visiting, make sure to stop pass the fantastic Wild Card Brewery and Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace, which are located in the same industrial estate.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
