At Selfridges there were more Melton pork pies, festive pork pies, game pies, and fruit mince pies than you could poke a stick at.....Burlington Arcade was as posh as ever.....and Somerset House had the best free photographic exhibitions.....plus ice skating in the central courtyard.
We didn't stop for a minute.....here's how it went.
|Such a lovely place Burlington Arcade...|
a perfect spot to shelter from the rain.
And did it rain!!!!!!!
|For a few quid you can even have your shoes shined here!|
|Burlington Arcade's jewellers are divine!!!!!!!|
|What a lovely gent he was....he's one of the Burlington Arcade beadles on patrol...|
in top hat and frockcoat!
|London cabs.....they're soooo good...I think they're the best cabs in the world.|
|Somerset House....a glorious Georgian mansion|
on the banks of the Thames.
|Those mad Brits....it was pouring|
but it didn't stop them skating in the central courtyard.
|Moi skating.......(I wish!)|
|Tim Walker's photographic exhibition was just one|
of many exhibitions at Somerset House.
It was fantastic.....beautifully presented and his
photographs were dazzling and magical.
|And yes...after all that skating I needed a Royal Mile whiskey (and a cigar)!|
