London is an ever evolving city and neighbourhoods will always be going in and out of fashion. Shoreditch hung on for a long time but eventually it fell from grace. An affluent crowd moved in and the area lost its edge. At first graffiti and grime sat comfortably next to independent boutiques and a Soho House club, but Shoreditch became complacent.
I love London. It’s my home and I am a Londoner through and through, but the city of Barcelona is in my soul. My mother is Catalán and I spent all my childhood summer holidays and every Christmas in Barcelona. I lived and worked in the city in my twenties and I am fluent in both Spanish and Catalán. If I were to live anywhere else in the world, Barcelona would be my first choice, closely followed by Ibiza.
So much has been written about Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, Barça Football Club or Catalunya’s quest for independence that today I just want to give you an insider’s guide to Barcelona.
We love all our H&G images but one of our favourites has to be our Royal Christmas sack photograph. On Christmas morning the children of Royalty, Prime Ministers and thousands of our wonderful customers wake up to a Harrow & Green Christmas sack.
At H&G we have been authorised by Father Christmas himself to design and print all his Christmas sacks and stockings from our London studio.
The H&G elves are very busy printing lots of Christmas sacks but is there one in the post for you? The question is - are you on the naughty or the nice list?

We love the white island of Ibiza so much that we’d like to share just a few of our favourite places.
Agroturismo Atzaro is paradise. Our stand out favourite boutique hotel and our home every summer. A hotel that offers such laidback luxury is a rare find. It captures the true essence of the island, an oasis where everyone is welcome.
