London 2014 Day 9 – Museum of London and Various Places

On this day we met Laura Porter for a visit to the Museum of London. We were there about half an hour before it opened, so we had time to take a look around in the area.

In the museum you can see the history of London from the beginning until the present time.

After lunch in the museum café Laura had to say good-bye to us and we spent the afternoon walking London again, starting at the museum and ending up at Warren Street tube station.

On a stall in front of a bookshop in Southampton Row I found the book because of which I had started knitting again ;)

This was Pitman Central College once upon a time and in 1987/88 I went through that door regularly. Happy memories!

London 2014 Day 7 / 8 – Greenwich and Other Places

Day 7 was a Sunday, so we went to church at Belmont Hall in the morning and again in the afternoon. In between we rested in the flat, so there are no photos from that day. Our first destination on the following day was Greenwich.

On our way back we stopped at Canary Wharf for some more photos

After a rest in the flat we travelled to Oxford Circus and just went on from there without checking the map. But of course wherever you go in London you always find something special :)

Behind the window of a confectionary in Regent Street they covered strawberries in chocolate.

Hamleys is always worth a visit. Especially when you meet the Lego version of the Royal family ;)

Near Hyde Park we found this special monument:
