  HQ of MI5, Millbank Lane, Westminster

Favorite thing: A vast representation of London's architecture is brooding, stony-faced and ashen. Featureless blocks of granite in every neighborhood loom four, five and six stories high, so many faces all frowning, grave and sober. The severity of these lifeless blocks may have been designed to reflect the stiff upper lip of the English mindset, but they also rob too many cityscapes of any impressions of joy or laughter.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
