Anyway, in the few hours we were in London we crammed in: China Town
Can you spot me? We actually did China Town twice. I really
wanted to get a few pics and on our first (and most
comprehensive)walk through it was raining like mad!
Leicester Square (where we had lunch at Chiquitos.)
Only took a picture of my starter. Was too busy eating after that!
We walked around the Theatre District
Shame about the rain!
It was only when we headed for Trafalgar Square we found out London Pride was on. We saw bits of the parade but generally tried to avoid it because of the crowds. Not that easy. There were certainly some sights to be seen and quite a party/carnival atmosphere.
We had a wander through Soho. If I'd been here before I wasn't aware I was in Soho.
There was a quick trip to Davenports. I'd heard of this place before from Chief. I was expecting it to be more Harry Potter like. Well, it is a magic shop. It was a fun place to go and see the tricks so Chief could decide which ones he was adding to his collection.
Davenports Magic Shop in Charing Cross
There was a walk around Covent Garden (we were so glad that most of it is indoors thanks to the rain!)
Great British Weather
We were contemplating a trip to Harrods from here. I've never been. But I was sooooo tired that we decided to get a brew and head back to get the coach. It was a fun trip and I'm already making a list of things I want to do next time. I'm also hoping next time we have better weather as there were so many other things I wanted to photograph!
Of course a weekend gallivanting around and I've done no sewing in what seems like an age. I'm itching to get back to it and maybe if I can get the chores I keep neglecting done, I can get to some stitching.
