London 2014 Day 10 Part 1 – Moor Park and Regent’s Park

We started the day with the Wednesday coffee morning at Belmont Hall. After returning to Harrow-on-the-Hill station we decided not to travel directly back into London, but to the other direction. Moor Park is the last station of zone 6 on the Metropolitan Line when you travel to Watford, Chesham or Amersham, so we got off there.

Moor Park is a very posh area with big houses in large gardens. What struck me first was how quiet the area was, even though it was in the middle of a working day. It was not at all like the London I loved, but more like a village. The quietness was what made me want to leave the place soon and return to London. The best thing about Moor Park in my opinion is the tube station which makes it possible to go where the life is :)

We returned to the lively parts of London – in this case Regent’s Park where we spent some time.

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!
