The concept behind the Lost & Found originated from an explorer and professor known in the Victorian era as Professor Hettie. G. Watson. Hettie travelled the world in search of new variations and species of botanics. She captured samples of the plants and flowers and kept them hidden away in her secret hideaway.
How amazing is this structure? Quoted as being a building with the Guggenheim effect - a complicated structure using ribbons of steel. Littlehampton has never been so interesting to me. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this sculptured building. Passionate about this. Me? You bet. Planning our trip to Littlehampton right now.
Not only a great quirky place to eat but by all accounts a darn fine Indian restaurant too. Carriage 397 was originally built as a carriage for the wealthy to entertain their families during travel. You don't need to be wealthy to enjoy all this unusual Indian Restaurant has to offer today.
Lotions and potions. I love the quirky way of serving the cocktails they do here. How much imagination has gone into these cocktails? They must taste as good as they look to have got the awards they boast.
Mr Q recalls visiting this strange crooked building when he was a small child. He recalls how wonky everything was and how the door frames were uneven and the floors were slanted. He didn't know where he had been until we asked his parents who then said it is a famous building for locals and tourists alike.
The building is so crooked that they have an illusion.....a marble rolls UPHILL. Quirky eh? or should I say "That's QWerky"
One of the coolest and quirkiest entrances into a bar we have ever seen.
The Australasia Bar really is “down under”! It’s under the ground and the entrance is a glass pyramid which could quite easily be overlooked. That is a crazy thing to say because its so very unique! But I guess the first time I saw it I thought it was a glass sculpture, not the entrance to a great bar and restaurant.
Mrs Q has never been one for gardening but when this quirky bar concept went down the route of Botany, then its no surprise that there was suddenly some serious interest in all that could be found in the potting shed.
Occupying the vaulted underpinnings of an imposing Victorian building the surroundings are certainly distinctive and ultimately relaxing. Art and photography blend with signature exposed brickwork, bespoke furniture, polished wooden flooring and a dusky autumnal colour palette.
