Regent’s Canal

We took a beautiful walk along the Regent’s Canal. I’d never been before, and was only dimly aware of its existence, so it was amazing to have a totally different perspective on London. There were so many canal boats and barges!

I decided I’d extremely like to live in one, just not all the time and not when it rained. Maybe this one:

Beautiful Hampstead

On one of the first properly summery days this year, we decided to visit the newly re-opened Kenwood House, which sits atop the glorious Hampstead Heath.

Walking across the Heath, we enjoyed a spot of people-watching and feeling that we were miles away from London.

Cambridge – the alma mater

For one of us, Cambridge holds a very special place in his heart after spending three years there. I didn’t know it very well so loved having an insider’s tour.

Bridge of Sighs

Although the sky was rather ominous, the view from the tower of Great St. Mary’s church in the city centre was made even more spectacular by the multicoloured market stalls.
