The travels, musings and thoughts of a man and his camera.

LONDON. A Few Hours Wandering.

St. Pancras, when they’re cleaning windows….. Sooner them than me.

A had business to do in that London but in between it I managed to do a bit of a walkabout.

Time was a little bit tight so I didn’t stray far from the area around Paddington and Kings Cross stations. It’s a little while since I was last in London, it’s not that I have a particular dislike of the city, it just doesn’t come at the top of the list when I’m planning a trip out.

Marchmont Street, in leafy Bloomsbury. The area was the childhood home of the actor and Carry On films star, Kenneth Williams.
History is all around in this part of London.

There’s a ubiquity about it, it’s always in the news or other media so I always end up with the feeling that somehow I’ve already been. The weather was not the kindest but then it was the end of October. I’ll probably take another trip down next year, but at the warmer end of the year.
