A week or so ago, I had a day out in London. It was a bit of an accidental trip, because I was booking tickets to go to the Who Do You Think You Are show in Olympia in February, and by mistake ordered tickets for 27th March instead! Anyway, it was a great day so I’m glad I went twice.
I arrived at Paddington and took the tube to Oxford Circus. Then I walked to Berwick Street in Soho, to go to Cass Art to buy supplies. And it was a good move, because lots of things were half price!
I then walked to Clerkenwell to go to the Society of Genealogist’s library as they had an open day and it was free to visit rather than the £18 it would otherwise have cost.
Here is Bloomsbury Square, where I was standing when I took the photo of the London Bus that I made a gocco print of:
On to Centrepoint:
Then, in stark contrast, there was this lovely old shop just up the road:
Some gorgeous facades if you look up:
And these funny things on the lamp posts:
Past Lincoln’s Inn Fields, which was all locked up; I suppose because it was Saturday.
Some tall blocks of flats; I liked the blue in the stairwell, though it isn’t so clear in this photo as in real life.
A mixture of old and new…
