Anoraks on for a trainspotting gig

Being an advertising agency and having offices near London Bridge has its advantages.

You may not be in the throbbing heart of fashionable Soho, but then you don’t have to put up with vacuous trendies in French Connection suits pushing past you all the time. You may feel chagrined at working “south of the river”, but your rent won’t put your business into receivership.

But best of all, you can have a party for trainspotters! This is just what Sainsbury-to-Whitbread agency Clark & Taylor is proposing this Christmas.

The agency’s offices overlook the picturesque sweep of London Bridge station, and new business director Neil Campbell has issued platform tickets for guests. Trains can be spotted from the agency’s balcony. French Connection anoraks are optional.
