Overview

View London is a souvenirs store that aims to change and subvert current London souvenirs. Current souvenirs are repetitive, poorly made and designed objects that are "Made in China". The store presented a different version of the British capital from what you normally see during your travelling experience. It caters for a more authentic kind of tourism through the collection of souvenirs, including aspects of the environment, political, places and tourist. Click the button below to check out the store:

Pop-up store

On the 16th of April, we created a pop-up souvenir store in Trafalgar Square to display and sell our souvenirs. The store engaged Londoners and tourist in a meaning interaction, surrounding the experience of this city and souvenirs that represent them. The London wildlife animal collection receive really positive responses!
