Well I did say in my last post that we would walk up
As it happens I will be showing you some views on The Strand
but not in the right order.
Using blogger's facility to upload photos in one go has not worked for me today. They are not in the order that I uploaded and I do not want to start again.
At this point we have parked the car in the morning and come into the grounds of Somerset House (where all records are kept)
to enjoy a coffee before we begin our day
We finished here at the end of the day too enjoying afternoon tea.
The teatime photos can be seen later on in this post
There are two good restaurants in the main buildings, one overlooking The Thames but these are not open on Sundays
Cou*tt's the royal jewellers
A little of theatreland
The Savoy Hotel
the only time I have been in here was to have supper with American friends after the theatre.
My husband and another male member of our party were not wearing a suit jacket so had to wear the hotel's red jackets.
Red of course to make sure one did not walk out with them
Wished I had my camera with me that night
A well known gentleman's club now used as a restaurant
Strand Palace Hotel
More of theatre land
I had Lavender cake and Alan had
his usual Carrot cake
The Royal Courts of Justice
St. Paul's Cathedral in the background
So as you can see The Strand has a lot of variation
and much more than I have shown you
The Whittard of Chelsea teashop I will keep for a separate post
Still a lot more to post on this one day in April
