London Travel

A walk through London

Technically we had two walks through London in the weekend and I’ve decided to make a post with the landmarks I passed by on one of them.


Westminster, the iconic image of London, of course had to appear.

Covid memorial

There is the covid memorial nearby, with hears drawn, waiting for people to dedicate them to someone who died in this pandemic.

Leake Street Graffiti Tunnel

Leake Street Graffiti Tunnel is not iconic, but it is so interesting and only a few minutes from the London Eye, underneath Waterloo station. At 300 metre, the tunnel is the city’s largest legal wall for graffiti.


These works of art are stunning.

pro-Ukraine Graffiti

Some graffiti has a humanitarian aspect too…

Fuck Putin

… and uplifting messages.

The statue of Boudica can be easily missed, but it shouldn’t.


The Cenotaph, where fallen soldiers are remembered each November.

Downing Street

Downing Street is heavily guarded, of course.

War memorial

This is another war memorial in the city centre.


Whitehall looked lovely in the sun, displaying both the British and the Ukrainian flag, in solidarity.

Guard on horseback

One of the horses was nearly falling asleep, he was so bored with the crowds. The other one was not happy with the people who were coming too close, but was very curious of the little girl who passed by him. It was such a lovely thing to see.

Cleopatra's needle

Cleopatra’s needle is another landmark on the Thames.


Buses are great for travelling in London too, not only the tube.

  1. It’s been years since I was last in London (even before the pandemic) and it’s clearly changed a lot. The saddest memorial is the COVID wall. All those hearts, just devastating. Thank you for sharing, Anca.

  2. I love riding the bus in London. It’s a great way to see a lot and figure out where you want to go explore later. That ceiling on the Leake Street graffiti wall — unbelievable. Can you imagine painting that? Loved the Covid memory wall, too. So many old favorites and I loved the Ukrainian flag above — Whitehall, maybe? Thanks for the walk and the memories.

    1. I don’t know about that. It would be interesting to know. Graffiti is a temporary art, so I imagine they are too bothered if someone else paints over their piece as it is to be expected.

  3. That seemed a really interesting walk! I knew about all of these apart from the Graffiti tunnel-wow, how beautiful! Kicking myself that I forgot to tell you about my concert on Saturday, especially as you were in London! ahrgh! Never mind!x
