Back in the summer we were visiting relatives in London. We went on a sightseeing walk around London. We were staying in Kingston so caught the train into London. We changed at Vauxhall and caught the tube to Green Park. The aim was to do something of a quick walk around some central London tourist landmarks.
We first walked through the park to Buckingham Palace. We did wonder why anyone would book a deckchair for the whole day to sit in the park.
We took some photographs of the palace and watched as the Guards standing on duty were inspected.
Military officer was riding around on his horse, quite surreal in some respects.
As we walked to Clarence House, we saw Rod Stewart. It was looking like he was filming a music video.
I stopped to take a photograph or two.
One of the reasons for posting this post, was that the video has now been released.
We then walked around to St James Palace. We missed the entrance as we were on the pavement next to the palace, but it was interesting to see what was originally the home of the royals. Through St James Park, through Whitehall, down to see the Houses of Parliament.
It was then pass Downing Street with a couple of protests. Back through Horse Guards Parade.
We then walked past Admiralty Arch into Trafalgar Square.
Then we caught the tube to Waterloo and then caught the train back to Kingston.
