The gates to The Globe which represent flora and fauna from the plays and sonnets. The view from our seats and the groundlings view and intermission. Wonderful night. Next time, a Shakespeare play as a groundling!
We ate at The Swan Chop House inside the Globe complex, window seats looking out over the Thames. Everything absolutely fresh and delicious.
The Shard from the Millennium Bridge and then some street performers near The Globe.
On the walk to the Millennium Bridge to cross over to The Globe, in a green space behind St. Paul’s we found a grove of blue trees.
Lunchtime walk in Holland Park after a late start following a very long day yesterday in Bath.
It is true that the minute the sun comes out so do the sunbathers!
Spent the day wandering through a bit of Hampton Castle and a corner of the gardens. Must say my respect for the set decorators and CGI workers on Tudors has gone up immensely. They really captured the texture of the bones of the space.
more pictures soon.
Shops along Columbia Road are practically hidden by all the flowers on Sunday but full of their own beautiful and fabulous goods.
On on side of the road there is a mosaic on the wall that separates a school from the street. This is an active, thriving neighborhood.
FLOWERS! I wish I could come close to the patter the sellers were spouting but it was fast, loud and funny.
The Birdcage, the pub that sits at the start of the magic that is the flower market. Looks like they’ve picked up some tips over the years those window boxes are amazing.
To find it we basically just watched the flow of people walking away with armfuls.
We also did a wander through Boxpark in Shoreditch, arty clothes, clever, edgy stuff. Lot’s of plastic, nylon and new recycled or bambo materials.
It was like looking at the future and the fast fading past today.
What useful information to have on maps in tourist areas!
