The Belmont Hotel is situated on New Walk where it meets De Montfort Square. The building used to be the home of Ernest Gimson, described by the art critic Nikolaus Pevsner as “the greatest of the English architect-designers” (according to Wikipedia). Through the dining room window, you can see a table set for afternoon tea. Hopefully we will be able to eat at restaurants soon.
The next few houses are neighbours, from 104 to
This door is slightly different, a modern attachment to the main house.
Across the bridge over Waterloo Way, the houses change character. I like the wrought iron work on the first floor balconies.
More New Walk Doors next week.
