We wandered in Kensington a few hours after we got to London. Had to nap first. Here are a few pictures. Hope you enjoy them.
It’s a different experience to walk past a place you’ve only seen from the top deck of the number 9 bus. I’ve looked down Adam and Eve Mews many times, thinking it intriguing and worth a close look.
Keeping with the lost in Paradise theme, one of the even smaller streets off the short Mews is called Eden Close.
Back onto Kensington High Street and here’s a milestone telling us it’s 8 1/2 miles to Hounslow and 1 1/2 miles to London. Hmmm … 8 1/2 miles does seem an awfully long way to walk tonight so I guess it’ll be London.
Added a couple of blue plaques (and they aren’t always blue):
Benny Hill lived here and Queen played their first concert over here.
After a bit of practice, Queen was playing places like this.
Saw the TARDIS.
Also an Art Deco apartment building Hercule Poirot could have lived in.
At a different building a few blocks away, snagged another sign about what not to do with a bicycle. (I collect pictures of these. The variety is impressive.)
The lights were on at the skating rink at the Natural History Museum. No skaters – too late at night – but a very lovely sight indeed.
That was a pleasant walk and the weather very promising for the morning.
