London - walking tourAugust 20, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C
Back in London again, staying at another cheap hostel but this time it's very close to a tube station, so not such a hike every day to get out.
Finally got around to doing a (free) walking tour - kinda went through the same places I'd already been, but the guide of course had extra historical notes to make things interesting. Pic 1 is the alley they replicated for Nocturne Alley in Harry Potter, 2 is the National Gallery, 3 is Admiralty Arch, 4 is a statue of James Cook on the street between there and... #5 Buckingham Palace, looking appropriately ominous, 6 less ominous through the attached park.
I quite liked this walking tour guide because he mostly let the interesting bits of history speak for themselves, unlike some of the other guides who try to be funny or super dramatic and it just distracts from the point of the tour.Read more
