Hi, thanks for visiting!

My name's Sam Kelleher, and I am a Senior Full-Stack Web Developer / Software Architect based in London. This website mostly contains a sample of work from my portfolio, tips and best practicies for building web applications, and reviews + photos of food and hotels in London.

Go ahead and explore my site, search for something specific if you fancy. Reach out to me by any of these various means below.

Mudchute Park and Farm

There is usually something to see here all year round in all weather conditions. The goats in particular as well as the small horses seem to enjoy getting human attention. I highly recommend going to the large Asda just round the corner and buy a bag of seeds and carrots to feed the animals. The carrot is a popular food among them all. Read more...

Neo Bankside

Some really beautiful landscaping work in the public thoroughfares here amongst the cafes and modern glass apartment buildings. Really natural and busy foliage is well maintained as well as some unique sculpture. There isn't anywhere to sit but is nice enough to go for a stroll in. The park is bordered by the Albion cafe who do have heated seats outside so you can sit on the edge and look out. Good place to get some fresh air in a short office break. Read more...

Grosvenor Square Garden

A small and quiet park space between the buildings and overlooked by the American Embassy to one side, which in itself is a large imposing building looking more like something from a Cold War era film than the US. A few squirrels, but not much in the way of cafes nearby or sunny sports. Read more...

Queen Elizabeth Roof Garden Bar & Café

The roof garden is quite large and is lovely to some enjoy. The care/bar here sells the usual drinks, then it's so sit amongst the foliage when the sun is shining or sit at the front and peer down at all the tourists and the City across the river. This place is a secret, the tourists don't know about it so it has a mostly local crowd. Read more...

Leicester Square Garden

Obviously very busy and a high number of tourists are here at all times of the day, but at Christmas there is a market that is put on that is surprisingly good. There is a large Ferris wheel which only costs a few pounds to ride on, and it offers really good views of the area for quite a long ride. Read more...

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

A very large park. A lot of effort has been so far made to grow the park and still has a very 'new' feeling about it. It's certainly a special park given all the unusual and modern ex-Olympic structures dotted it through it. Can get very busy naturally during the summer. Bring some trunks and book a space at the Aquatics Centre to cool down. Read more...

Barbican Conservatory

Well worth exploring when it opens. It's quite unusual thing to have so central to London. There are tiny turtles in the various pools if you look carefully. It's quite a large and peaceful space to explore. Many people go there with books to read. Read more...

Greenwich Park

A very large open park with stunning views of the City and Canary wharf from the top, with the old Navy buildings at the bottom. There is also some wildlife to see. The hillside and flat bottom also make the park good for flying a kite. Get a ferry boat before or after to get to this park if you're not local to the area. Read more...

Jubilee Gardens

A more tourist crowd for this new garden, so no the kind of place you might want to bring a towel and relax as it's very busy with lots of people coming through. But does have a childrens area. The best time to come here is at New Years Eve for first-rate views of the fireworks at the London Eye - but get there early. The police cordon the area from about 6-9pm to manage the crowd. Read more...
