London

August Bank Holiday weekend 2017, me and my buddy Kris headed up to London to visit the Bond in Motion exhibition; I’ve done a separate posting about the exhibition which can be found in the ‘Events’ section. However for those of you interested in London, you’re in luck as this posting is all about London! Probably why it’s titled London, just a wee observation. Call me Sherlock…

Both being fans of the BBC Benedict Cumberbatch ‘Sherlock’ series we had to pop up to visit 221B Baker Street, the home of Sherlock Holmes.

After a brief walk round the Sherlock Holmes shop, we got back on the tube and headed across to Leicester Square.

After meeting Yoda and photographing the historic William Shakespeare statue, we walked out of the filmic part of Leicester Square, across to The Lego Shop (Largest in the world) and the MnM Store.

The exhibition was located at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden. This meant we got to wonder through Covent Garden on this gorgeous sunny August afternoon, which really was a pleasure. Well, until I got photo-bombed.

Before getting to Tower Bridge, we had a walk across to the historical Tower of London site.

Here are some shots of Tower Bridge and some of the stunning views from the bridge.

A short journey on the tube and we were at Westminster, ready to explore the views from the Westminster Pier.

Before I show you guys the Disney Store I just want to show off this really cool zoom feature on my camera which I’ve been wanting to experiment for a while. This is zoomed in on Big Ben from the Westminster Pier… I know, easily pleased.

Alright let’s see this Disney store, I know you’re as excited as I am about this… Big kid problems!

So there you have it, London! Brilliant way to spend the Bank Holiday and be sure to read my posting on the Bond in Motion exhibition.
