So we’ve returned to the green hills of Derbyshire from the urban sprawl of the capital city which we have explored / endured for four days over Easter.
As mentioned previously we have done a far bit of London but we still managed a few firsts – Tower of London, Tate Modern and the War Museum.
Plus an impromptu graffiti photo tour of some of the seedier parts of the tourist trail.
Staying in Waterloo Travelodge we found a brilliant graffiti tunnel where artists have free reign with their spray cans and garish colours, here’s a few snaps.
Next up, a quick stroll to the Eye (London’s most prominant tourist sight, owned by a French energy company!!!)
And a stroll / dash along Festival Walk to look at / fear the living statue people. Here’s just one of them (from behind as I didn’t want to have to give him any money)
Then a mooch along to view the houses of Parliment, Big Ben and the big ole River.
Here’s a panoramic view of the Thames complete with a boat that later stacked itself into the bridge and seemed to get stuck for quite a while!!!
Next up, Camden Town and the Imperial War museum. Plus the colossal waste of taxpayer’s money known as the Olympic Stadium . .. . . . . .
