Broadcasting House

This is the BBC.

After a nice Sunday afternoon stroll around the Unfinished City's West End, I was heading back towards Baker Street station, when I found myself in front of BBC Broadcasting House. With a lack of traffic and pedestrians, to spoil the view, I managed to take this shot, of the oldest part of the BBC Headquarters.

Cutty Sark

Last of the Tea Clippers.

It was back in 2012, for my 40th birthday, that I last visited the Cutty Sark, in Greenwich. This was shortly after she had been rebuilt, following a catastrophic damage caused by a fire during restoration work, in 2007. It was a pleasant enough afternoon and, although the crowds were on the large side, they were hardly noticeable in the newly created space around the historic vessel.

Monument to the Great Fire

A Monument and a Scientific Laboratory.

The Monument, as it is known, once stood proud above the skyline of the Unfinished City, offering unparalleled views of the great city. 

Since its construction it has now been dwarfed by the newer buildings in the area, which has led me to wander past this icon, without even noticing it. Today was different, and I managed to grab a shot, whilst trying to avoid the hundreds of tourists and business types.

However, the views are still pretty spectacular and, for a small price, are worth climbing the steps for. Plus, as an added bonus, you receive a certificate to say that you have climbed it.

Leadenhall Market

Arcade of Iron and Glass.

It was a strangely quiet Friday lunchtime, wandering around the Unfinished City, when I found myself heading toward the City of London.

This is an area hat I am the least familiar with, so I decided to take a look at Leadenhall Market and its immediate environs.
