A Few London Snaps

Yesterday we drove from Penzance to Bristol Airport where we returned our rental car, and caught the Airport Flyer into town to Temple Meads station. I had booked ahead through trainline.com, and had an all-in-one ticket for bus, train and metro to take us to London. It worked brilliantly! There is no time to say much, but here is a taste of London from our walk this morning.

British Museum, amazing of course,

and full of treasure!

Trafalgar Square with fountains, sculptures, buskers, and tourists … you can see Big Ben in the distance …

National Gallery also full of treasure, the artistic kind, here seen beyond a fountain …

Houses of Parliament …

the London Eye and Thames …

and Westminster Abby flying all the flags! This is where we popped into the Tube and found our way back to Shoreditch where we are staying.

  1. I have many photos of us in London, Christine; but the really interesting part is that they were taken in Janury 1990, when things like The Eye didn’t exist ! Still, we do have a shot in front of the BM, and that looks just the same. 🙂

  2. Did you hear the bells of Shoreditch? I am not sure why the bells of Shoreditch say “when I grow rich” but it is interesting that Shoreditch is richer / trendier than it used to be.

let's chat about this ...
