There can be few London sights more beautiful than the South Bank in the sunshine, against a backdrop of beautiful blue sky. Yesterday (yes, I’ll admit I didn’t get around to posting yesterday, but will make up for it with two posts today), we took the tube to Charing Cross and walked from Trafalgar Square to the Christmas market that’s just opened along the waterfront near Royal Festival Hall. We ambled through the market and walked down to Blackfriars where we had a drink on the river in Doggett’s Coat and Badge pub.
When you live in a city as amazing as this it’s surprisingly easy to forget the wonderful array of things on offer to see and do. Yesterday made me realise how important it is to make the most of it-because London won’t be my home forever.
