Elephant and Castle

Proudly displayed in the Elephant and Castle.
We have to more or less admit that there are not so many great things that serve here as trinket news stories, but alongside the fabulous bowling alley, the Argentinian steakhouse, cheap chinese, good pizza and every bus service you could possibly imagine rollicking around those bizarro traffic islands, E&C has it all on show. Just what our bookie bets on is unclear – peanut futures perhaps? But nevertheless, to tear it all down and start again is not the odds on favourite.
Clearly sunday is a slow news day.
