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.
This is my standard form of disclosure that I am retroactively adding to all blog posts done before April 1, 2018, and will add to all new posts.
1. Is this experience open to the public?
2. Who paid the cost of me doing this?
3. Did I get any compensation or special consideration for writing this blog post?
4. Would I be as positive about this place if I had gone as a regular visitor?
Yes. I did go as a regular visitor.
