Despite living in Hertfordshire most of my life I still consider myself a Londoner born and bred. I moved from North London when I was fourteen, I moved back briefly to Bloomsbury for University, then I moved away again. I have worked in the City, in the West End, and South Kensington I’ve travelled the length and breadth of the tube. I’ve been to numerous pubs, clubs, restaurants, parties, weddings, barmitzvahs all over the place. In essence I still feel a Londoner. When I step off the train at Kings Cross, I take a breath of polluted air and I feel at home. I don’t suppose my children will feel the same, although they do get dragged around the British Museum and London Zoo quite a lot.
Anyhow, today for various reasons I had to stroll across London from Kings Cross to London Zoo via Oxford Street. I took a few pictures which I thought I would share for those of you who don’t know London and those that do!
I would annotate them, but frankly, its impossible in blogger. In summary, square where once stood a church in Tottenham Court Road, statues outside St Pancras Church (spooky), Fig tree by the phone boxes near Gordon Street, UCL Campus development, The crocodile outside Lacoste near Wigmore Street, The Institute of Archaeology, Oxford Street, Christopher Place and some gorillas at the zoo.
