Joe and I returned yesterday from a 4 night break in London. We usually stay in the Docklands area but we deceied to treat ourselves this time so we stayed in the West End not far from Marble Arch.
Good Friday was a lovely sunny day, so after breakfast we took a
stroll through Hyde Park from Speakers corner, by the Serpentine to Wellington Arch. Hyde Park was really busy and many families had taken advantage of the weather & had brought picnics with them and were sat taking in the sunshine. I was surprised to see it so busy!!! Why I thought this I don't know as it was Good Friday & we were in the centre of London!!! I had the romantic idea in my mind that we we would take coffee in the cafe on the edge of the Serpentine and watch the world go by!!! How wrong was I.
The Mall towards Buckingham Palace from Wellington Arch
Buckingham Palace Gardens from Wellington Arch
We did however visit Apsley House and Wellington Arch both of which neither of us have ever been too before. We climbed Wellington Arch and saw some lovely views of London up the Mall etc from the balcony
