Sorry everybody, I know you’ve all been on the edge of your seats waiting for the next instalment of my adventures in London ;-)
On Wednesday I went to Barnes for a wander around town and then a visit to the Wetlands centre. Thanks for the recommendation last time I was in London, deisegirl, I didn’t even know the place existed till you mentioned it and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit – especially the ‘Birds of the World’ exhibits. There were some stunning birds and some very weird bird cries were heard as I walked around the trail! And the landscaping was pretty good too! The only slight downside was that I forgot sun-screen and got sunburned on my face and chest – but that’s down to me not thinking I’d need it on a London trip in April!!!
Above is the Olympic Studios, where the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and many others apparently recorded.
Barnes itself is a very attractive town, I can see why (apparently) a lot of famous people live there! But the Wetlands Centre was definitely the highlight of the trip! I took literally hundreds of photos, but I’ve tried to narrow it down to only 100 or so!!!
When I finally managed to drag myself away I walked over the Hammersmith bridge into Hammersmith, where I decided to catch the tube to Kensington to visit Whole Foods Market. Unfortunately I got off at West Kensington and decided to walk the rest of the way – and West Kensington sucks! I ended up walking to South Kensington station and catching the tube again to get to Kensington High Street, stopping to shop along the way.
As I’ve put so many photos in again I’ll stop there and cover the food separately!
