God's Own Junkyard showcases neon artist Chris Bracey's personal collection of work in a salvage yard in Walthamstow. It contains everything from his signage for Soho sex clubs in the '60s to his work for the movie industry, including pieces that were used in 'Captain America', 'Eyes Wide Shut', 'Byzantium' and more. Sandwiched in between all of this, you'll find his artwork, some of which have been exhibited in his gallery shows, and others that were specially commissioned by other artists and clients.
The Junkyard is currently open to visitors 1030am-4pm, every Friday and Saturday. Entry is free.

I've got to choose between Vestry House, Rose & Crown & GOJ. This is tough! I'll go for GOJ for exciting and quirky and new, and be grateful that the others are still around, too.
One of the best places to visit in the whole of London never mind E17, the sharp intake of breath by first time visitors is proof of that. Like being inside a frozen firework display, and then you can pop around the corner to the Wild card brewery for a pint of Queen of Diamonds.
A veritable Aladdin's cave. One could marvel for hours at the wonderfully creative neon work. You feel like you are on a film set and you can also take tea there or just relax in the sunshine (when the sun shines)
Love it! A great attraction, lovely cafe, good team. They have a pleasant habit of playing The Beatles' 'White Album' too, which can only be in its favour.
The go to place when friends and family are in town. Never fail to see something new and different every time we visit.
Everyone should visit this place at least once in their life. It's like entering a wonderland and it's magical, and if it's all too much and you need a sit down they now have a cafe too so you can gaze with longing at beautiful, funny and sometimes rude lights!
It doesn't matter where you live, this temple of neon really is worth the trek across town to Walthamstow for.
