Last weekend we decided that if the weather was nice this weekend, we’d go “up town” and do some site-seeing. We settled on the City of London, aka the Square Mile, given that DH knows it like the back of his hand and makes a good tour guide. My favourite bits were the Swiss Re building on St. Mary Axe (photos 1 & 2), known as the Gherkin, and Leadenhall Market, which is undergoing some restoration so isn’t looking its best. Photo 3 is of Lloyds of London and photo 4 is DH & DS posing with a sculpture called Rush Hour. DS loved going on the Tube and ended up eating his lunch on it on the way home, much to the amusement of other passengers.
Newsflash: Londoners spotted smiling on Underground!
