Anglophile Friday - London



If I were in London this week and next, you would find me here, far from Olympic Park.















Okay, maybe not 10 Downing Street. I'll take the Virtual Tour instead.

And, of course, there are so many interesting places in between!

Trafalgar Square with St. Martin's in the background



Boudicca 
near Westminster Pier


Buckingham Palace

Charing Cross Station

This is actually a picture I borrowed from Joe. He spent five days in London and didn't turn off the date stamp on his camera. :-((((   So yes, I know the cloning job didn't work so well. I know it's difficult to ignore, but at least you can see Charing Cross Station, the bridge, the boats, and the amazing River Thames.

I think of you, oh Anglophile, when I hear about the Olympics. I'm a huge fan of The Firm, and the Jubilee was fun to watch; but I'd be off far away from the games, hunting down quaint and charming sights with you if we were there ....

Thanks for the tour.

Once again, thanks, for the trip! That line of people reminds me that I may never see the inside of a famous building again. I don't see any evidence of a date or cloning failure. They are all great shots!

if i could make it to London, i would leave the city immediately and go far out in the country to see English Gardens and old ruins and old buildings and anything not in a city. old stone houses and old stone fence, i think you are getting what i mean.

Parsley said...

I agree with Sandra but I enjoy this city post too.

Deanna said...

I'll bet it's crazy in the city right now but also rather exciting. I'm really looking forward to the opening ceremonies.

Lovely to see it through a bloggers eye.

I would be far from London too, probably in York. I'd really like to go there again.

I agree with you, I wouldn't be near the Olympic Park, so many wonderful things to see in London away from there. Then of course, would have to go out to the wonderful country side...Yorkshire..Cotswolds. Have a great weekend.

Great trip.. Years ago, we saw a museum- I'm thinking The British Museum comes to mine. Where ever that was...there is an open page on display - hand written manuscript of Handles's Messiah. Other thing of renown. Maybe you have been there. Have a lovely visit.

Mary said...

Your photos are wonderful. I know the games are disruptive and are a pain in the sides of working folk who have to get around, but your city is gorgeous and packed with history. I'm so glad we have you to guide us through the maze. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

I went to London years ago. Many years ago and I had forgotten a lot of this so thanks for reminding me and letting me remissness. Just in time to for the Olympics.

Loved touring!!

I bet you liked watching some of the bike races to see the countryside. I thought of you actually while I was watching some of it, but I could only take so much of people riding with banana seats where they don't belong for that long ;-)

Nice little post.
The BBC have saturated coverage of the Olympics this week. It may be a surprise for you to know that I have never seen The Royal Albert Hall or the V & A. However every single time I'm there I end up in Trafalgar square.
