Mr Munro and I spent six years living in London. A country girl, I didn’t think I’d enjoy living in a big city, but I grew to love it and was sorry to leave. There’s so much to see and do, so much history, and when I needed open spaces a walk or run in one of London’s many parks such as Kensington Gardens or Hyde Park.
Here are a few of the sights around the city of London.
This is the famous Tower Bridge on the river Thames.
This is Regent’s Park, once hunting grounds for Henry VIII. It is now the home of the London zoo.
This is one of the many glasshouses at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew. The gardens are huge and take all day to wander around. They are home to a wide variety of plants from all corners of the world, some of which are very rare.
The famous Big Ben. The name refers to the bell within the clock tower and hearing Ben chime is quite special. I gawked every time I walked past.
A horse guard. The horses are so quiet. They stand calmly while tourists act quite stupidly, jumping around with their cameras and shrieking.
If you could go to London tomorrow what landmark would you want to visit first?
