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.
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 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.
Some graffiti has a humanitarian aspect too…
… 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 is heavily guarded, of course.
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.
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 is another landmark on the Thames.
Buses are great for travelling in London too, not only the tube.
