London Trip

We're just back from a long weekend in London. We've been visiting the capital on a regular basis for well over 30 years but it's still easy to find new areas and landmarks. The weather was very good (blue skies and up to 23C/73F) so we spent most of out time outside. London is a teeming metropolis but has many green places. No Tower of London or Buckingham Palace - here's my alternative London.

Covent Garden - this highland soldier advertised snuff

Somerset House

Victoria Embankment Gardens

Al fresco dining in South Kensington

A modest terraced house is over £1m in Chiswick

Putney Bridge underground station (overground at this point!) was the starting point for our days out 

Chiswick House conservatory

Barnes Common - this is a wide place in the middle of West London

A spooky discovery, an abandoned and overgrown cemetery in Barnes Common

The Eight Bells provided refreshment after a hard day sightseeing

Gwen gives Chelsea's Diego Costa a taste of his own medicine!
