Unfortunately, when I went to the church itself it was closed, but I will be returning to see what wonders it holds, in the near future.

|A little piece of Italy in the heart of London.|
It was a particularly warm morning as we made our way through Kensington Gardens, stopping at various points of interest, on our gentle stroll through the Unfinished City.
We had begun the morning at the Diana Memorial Playground, before heading to Kensington Palace and the Round Pond. From there we headed to the Long Water and the Peter Pan statue, before progressing up to the Italian Gardens.
The Italian Gardens are a wonderfully peaceful place to take a break, considering how close they are to the Bayswater Road. With gently sloping, tree-covered greens, on either side, offering shade, a Pump House with seating and fountains that keep the heat down, you can quite easily forget that you are in the heart of London.

|V & A Museum of Childhood|
Set in the heart of Bethnal Green the museum was simple to reach, being just a two-minute walk from Bethnal Green Station. And what a wonderful museum it is.
The museum houses over 6000 garments, construction toys, dolls (and their houses),furniture (from 1640 to the present), 3000+ games (both indoor and outdoor), mechanical toys, plus much more.
It it is a great place to reminisce and remember some of the toys that I played with as a child. Some of which I still have. And, it is the perfect place to have flashbacks, of which I had many.
