scooterworks uk in Lower Marsh

Anne Critchley

Memories of Italian holidays and the sublime Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday are evoked by scooterworks uk.

This unique shop sells secondhand Vespas and Lambrettas imported from Italy. The shop is the brainchild of Craig O'Dwyer and Fifi Fontavot who live in Southwark.

They have a workshop at Tower Bridge where the scooters are re-conditioned. The main customers are commuters looking for easy ways of weaving through London's traffic and collectors. Apart from rainbow-coloured scooters there are artefacts and T-shirts for sale.

You can also buy a good coffee made on a fabulous 1957 Faemo machine. This shop is a gem.
