I have just spent a very pleasant weekend visiting friends in London. The trains were delayed, the snow fell continuously and the pavements were treacherous but it was a lovely weekend.
I rarely visit London; the last time was about 6 years ago and I can’t remember the previous visit!
A two hour walk around the sights of the Southbank felt like we’d been hiking for hours but it was well worth it. The streets were fairly quiet and, although we had to concentrate on walking in the snow, we were able to get in a pretty good walk. From the Shard to Lambeth Palace we went along the river and I took some photos. They have a very different quality to pictures taken on a clear day with a blue sky but I think they are lovely and atmospheric. Take a look and see if you agree.
