So why is the whole street blue? The bluewash is a temporary artistic intervention, designed purely to brighten up the building site. Eventually (and arguably disappointingly), the site will become the ‘Brentford Waterside’ development, providing around 876 new homes over 11 acres. Until that happens, the Brentford Project is a celebration of the underdogs, the small businesses that give anyone who enters an experience they will never forget. Whether it’s eating a delicious pizza at Santa Marias surrounded by Ferraris, or grabbing a quick pint in the Brewery Tap, this place seriously has it all and has adapted incredibly well considering what 2020 has thrown at it. It’s worth noting too of its geographical location, just 8 miles from Buckingham Palace, which although means plenty of tourists, also means an eye-watering cost of living and operating.
To summarise, if you are in the market for a classic or unusual car, Merlin’s the man. If you’re lucky enough to own a classic or unusual car, be sure to check out one of Duke of London’s many events. From ‘Classics and Cake’ mornings to effortlessly cool drive-in cinema nights, whatever you’re into, whatever you drive, this place has it covered.
