Marble Arch Mound…

Last night Stuart and I went up the 136 steps of the Marble Arch Mound in London's glitzy West End.
 
Trumpeted as "London's newest and greatest outdoor attraction" it was certainly the former and certainly NOT the latter.
 
A pile of misplaced scaffolding with some dying turf on the side the mound cost £6-50 (reduced from £8) for Fast Track and offered interrupted views of the side of some buildings and some trees. 25 metres just isn't high enough.
 
Perhaps acknowledging this poor spectacle, the Marble Arch event organisers are today offering anybody who has booked a visit during the first week a return ticket free of charge so that they can enjoy the full experience as and when (if and when?) it is completed - including the Lightfield art installation, M&S Food, and the landscape once it has had time to bed in and grow. 
 
I don't think we'll bother.
