The artist who designed The Beatles' iconic Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album sleeve has produced a series of canvases to greet travellers arriving at Gatwick Airport.
Sir Peter Blake's work shows London through the ages.
He said: "They are a fantasy London, so each one is a specific tourist attraction, but then lovely odd things are happening."
They are on display in the North and South Terminals of the airport.
He said: "If you're waiting for your bag and looking around you think, what are those animals doing in Westminster abbey?
"However much time you've got, there's a lot to look at."
In April Sir Peter recreated the Sgt Pepper cover to celebrate his 80th birthday, which included celebrities Amy Winehouse and Kate Moss.
