Around St Paul’s Cathedral my current “home” area.
This area was named Londinium by the Romans and parts of the old City Walls still exist, uncovered during the bombings in the second world war.
There are lots of little alleyways and back streets to be explored
Always interesting places to explore and new things to find and most of this is away from the tourists
in an area where, I discovered, William Shakespeare used to frequent
Sometimes, I come across rather elegant parties and I can’t help but take a peek
Other times it might be an ancient graveyard, now courtyard to an up market block of flats
BUT my most favourite views are of St Paul’s Cathedral and Temple Gate
And how lucky was I this week when this was the view from my bed.
