Royal Fever

Take a look at this awful photo of the Royals thats just appeared on the South Bank

Surely the money for this could have been better spent on something the crowds would enjoy. Even a few more mobile toilets would have been a practical alternative to this silly 35 year old photo.

Hyde Park

It is so nice to see the sun here in London today I thought I would take you on a walk through Hyde Park.

 This is a stunning place to sit and read - Hyde Park

Fun in the Sun - Hyde Park

Wander past speakers corner and down the paths of Hyde Park, deckchairs sprinkle the grass and picnic rugs hold families enjoying the sun. Dogs play and horses stroll elegantly through the pathways. Have a coffee in The Lido Cafe next to the Serpentine Lake and watch the ducks fight for bread with the birds.

Go and see the fountains, the flower gardens or the statues which scatter the park.  Take a boat out on the lake and glide sedately with the swans and geese.  Watch dedicated runners pound the park and office workers in suits and trainers walking home.

Fountain - Hyde Park

Keep walking through the park and you see just how lovely it is.   Who wouldn`t want to sit and watch the world go by near this pretty fountain.

The Gatehouse Hyde Park

If you want you can go through Kensington Gardens and finish your walk near Harrods.

Chelsea flower show is on in London this week and sounds wonderful but for a free show of fabulous London you can`t beat a walk through the parks.
