The London Logs: Alfred Hitchcock & Epping Forest

The Author By Kelly Hayes-Raitt | August 20th, 2012 | Comments 1 Comment »

Turns out, Alfred Hitchcock was born and raised around the corner from where I’m living this summer! To commemorate the 100th anniversary of his birth, 17 mosaics depicting scenes in Hitchcock movies were installed at the Leytonstone Tube Station — the place I pass every day!100_0428.jpg

Tonight, I walked to the Alfred Hitchcock Hotel, which seems to have nothing to do with the director. …Traditional English pub overlooking Epping Forest with reasonably priced wine and fun black-and-white photos like this one of Hitchcock directing “Psycho.”

Epping Forest, now there’s a work of art! 100_0391.jpgAbout 10 minutes from “my” flat, this urban park features a gorgeous lake with swans, geese and boaters and miles of paths for off-leash dogs. 100_0389.jpgIt’s London’s largest natural open space, 6,000 acres!
