London in the fall






















I took a lot of pictures the day we went to London - these are the mighty scaled down ones...by more than half!

But I have to say even though I adore the countryside and love the coast, I absolutely love, love, love London in the Autumn - it's so romantic...especially on a bright blue crisp and gorgeous day.

OK so taking the crowds out of the equation - it wasn't really that busy to be honest, but it was by far one of  'the most' photogenic places I have ever visited.

I said 'smile' and London smiled right back at me.

We went ::

From the station straight to Buckingham Palace...for the kids to see if they could spy some royalty -  naturally.

Walked down the Mall and just caught the royal horseguards on the change around.

Headed across the cobbles to Big Ben - where we caught her chiming at midday - twelve 'boings!' - oh how easily thrilled we are as a family.

Saw the London eye then headed to the tube over to St Paul's Cathedral.

Next the Millennium bridge then down river to Tower Bridge where we took a little detour to...

The Gherkin.

Where we dined on scrummy cakes and had a most welcome break.

Retraced our steps and decided to take on The Tower of London until it got dark...very, very dark.

Caught a river Clipper all the way back to where we had begun and just managed to catch our train home - along with a mass of London commuters.  

Apart from the grumpy scowling latter - it was a most fabulous day and honestly....I can't wait to go again.

Look out London - I have my eye on you.



ps. yes that is literally people clinging to the outside of The Shard.
