London One day in London


10+ Posts
This was first stop on a 3 week trip to UK and Italy. Would love to have stayed longer but just didn't fit into my plans.

An overnight flight from Toronto and was met by relatives and made our way across London to Ladywell Village to change and freshen up. Having lived in london years ago, and visited for a few days 3 years ago, I wanted to see something new. Headed back into London and to Tower of London to see the Poppy Installation I had read about recently and what an amazing sight... over 800,000 ceramic poppies representing a sea of blood. https://poppies.hrp.org.uk/

Next up was The Shard, which had just recently come to my attention. The weather wasn't the best, but still some wonderful views http://www.the-shard.com/

There was no preconceived idea of where to eat and we ended up at Steak & Co near Convent Garden http://www.steakand.co.uk/ Excellent service and an enjoyable meal. After that headed home as early start in morning, heading to Portsmouth.
