@Lucy W The tiny library is on Lewisham Way. The rest are mostly google-able thanks to names and streets, however I've no clue where the piano is, and I want to find it too!

@Fox o @Lucy W The piano is outside the Sarastro Restaurant near Drury Lane. I went past it during my last trip!

If you visit Sarostro take a very close look at the wall art work of the two figures. Shocking, absolutely shocking !
