Our last stop of the day before heading home was to Teddington where we decided to stop for lunch. The Waterstones here opened in 2004 and used to be an Ottakars store and, like the Newport and Doncaster branches, they have a tiled mural done by artist Chris Burke behind their tills. (Incidentally, according to Chris’s website there were some in other former Ottakars stores, but of the shops we’ve already done they were either covered over, have been removed or we simply failed to notice them!).
The lady in Teddington looked rather bemused when I asked if I could take a picture of the tiles and asked why I wanted to so I muttered about it being unusual! As you can see, theirs is covered with adverts!
We had lunch in the King’s Head pub – a delicious Malabar fish curry – and then headed down to Teddington lock to walk it off before heading home!
