No matter how many times I visit London it still captivates me.  I love nothing more than walking through the streets just taking in day to day life.  Once up on a time I thought I’d move there to work, but I was never quite brave enough.  I also think you see it through different eyes when you visit.  I know for me it is through rose tinted glasses. I always wondered whether it would be the same living there as it is visiting, or whether it would be better, or even worse.  For now I’m content to visit as often as I can.  Last week I found myself there for work with a stay over.  Having spent the whole day in a training room come the evening I was more than ready to stretch my legs.  My hotel was on the Gloucester Road right by Cromwell Road which is home to three museums.  I spent a pleasant, if not a little cold & wet, evening taking in the night time views of the Natural History Museum, Science Museum and Victoria and Albert.  The buildings seem to come alive at night and are more magnificent than they do during the day.

By exploring London on foot I have definitely discovered it isn’t as big as you think.  By travelling overground and not underground you also get to see a lot more of the sights and architecture.  I know next time I visit I’ll be walking as much as I can.
