London walk

Parks, flags, squares and circles featured on our 7½ mile walk in London today. We saw red, roses and recycled gasometers.

Most of our walks are in countryside but occasionally we go to London. Our route today started at Waterloo railway station, went over Westminster Bridge, along Parliament Street to King George Street, past the Foreign Office and statue of Robert Clive, over Horse Guards Road, through St James’s Park, across The Mall, through Green Park, past Berkeley Square, over Oxford Street to Manchester Square, past The Wallace Collection, along Marylebone High Street, over Marylebone Road to York Gate and into Regent’s Park where we stopped for lunch in Queen Mary’s Gardens.

After lunch the route went past London Zoo, across Albert Road, eastwards alongside Regent’s Canal, past Camden Lock, Gasholder Park and Camley Street Natural Park, over the canal at Granary Square, through St Pancras International station, over Euston Road to Woburn Place where we caught a bus back to Waterloo station.

The red was the colour of the jackets of the guardsmen lining The Mall for the rehearsal of the Trooping the Colour. The roses were in bloom in Queen Mary’s Gardens. The recycled gasometers were in Gasholder Park.
