Queen's Walk, London, UK

Just walking along the Thames during lunch was wonderfully peaceful. Glad I chose the 1 mile walk versus the tube ride to Tower of London

"Little Ben" It’s only 6 metres high and tends to be unnoticed.  it is outside Victoria station, at the intersection of Vauxhall Bridge Road and Victoria Street, and was erected in 1892. Big Ben, its big brother, is to be found at the other end of Victoria Street, 15 minutes away.

This is Warren Mews in the Fitzrovia neighborhood of Central London. Fitzrovia is just north of Soho. Awesome neighborhood... pubs, restaurants, galleries, all hidden in back alleys... like a lot of places in London. The best parts of London, and the most magical are off the tourist track, in the back alleys.

Cobblestone street London - Mews were the alley entrances to stables for horses/carriages behind the large houses. Converted to separate homes now.

Entrance Hall to the Natural History Museum, London. Romanesque Revival but with modern materials and structures such as terracotta and striking steel ribs to the roof. All decorated with natural imagery. Such beautiful architecture!

Charing Cross is officially recognized as the centre of London. A plaque marks the spot at the top of Whitehall, at the south of Trafalgar Square. The plaque reads: "On the site now occupied by the statue of King Charles I was erected the original Queen Eleanor's cross, a replica of which stands in front of Charing Cross station. Mileages from London are measured from the site of the original cross." L. Hickey

Have You Visited the Tower Bridge High Walkways?

London launderette. I like a launderette afternoon, washing the big duvets and pillows, having a few hours surrounded by soap scents.
