My trip to London, part 2

This is the second part of my photographic report of London.

This place is Piccadilly circus. Probably it is the most funny place of London:













And this is Piccadilly st. This street communicates Piccadilly circus with Green park:



The Meridien hotel in Piccadilly st:





The japanese embassy:



Ritz hotel:



More smart buildings in Piccadilly st:








On the north of Piccadilly st, it is Myfair district. It is one of the most expensive areas of London:



Grosvenor place in Myfair district:











And this is Hyde park. In this corner, Hyde park, Green park and Piccadilly st. join. It is known as Hyde park corner:



This is an statue of Wellington:



This arch is the entrance to Hyde park:



An statue of Aquiles:



And this is the inner of Hyde park. It is enormous, and it is plenty of big trees and extensive meadows:





This is the Serpentine lake. This long lake is in the middle of the park:



In the park, there are roads for horses:





An small statue of Peter Pan:



This italian garden is at the end of the Serpentine lake:





And Kensington gardens. Actually, they are the same park that Hyde park, then I don't understand why it is called with another name:



Kensington palace. In this palace, Lady Di lived after her divorce:



These are the gardens of the palace:







And this is the Orangerie, where the tropical plants are kept during the cold winter of London:



In the other side of the park, it is the Albert Memorial, dedicated to Albert prince, married with queen Victoria:



At the corners of the monument, each statue represents a continent:

África:



Asia:



America:



On the south of the park, it is Kensington district. It also one of the most expensive of London:









This is Royal Albert Hall. It is like a theatre for operas and other big spectacles:



This is the Bromton Oratory, one of the few catholic church in London:




This is Harrods:



During the night, this is a bit pretentious:



Also in Kensington, some of the best museums of London are here. This is the Royal Albert Museum:





This other building is the Natural History Museum:







And this is the Science Museum:



Near Kensington, it is Belgravia district. This district is plenty of embassies:








Far from the center of London, Notting Hill is a residential district. Several years ago, it was the house of inmigrants from caribbean countries. They painted theirs houses with alive colors:





Portobello road is the main street of the district:



If we return to the center, Regent street is another monumental street, plenty of buildings of John Nash:



















And this is Oxford st, maybe the most commercial street in London:







At the end of Oxford st. it is Marble arch:



At the north of the center of London, it is Euston road. In this street, there are two big train stations : King's Cross and St. Pancrass:

King's Cross is a bit modest:



However, St. Pancras station is a extraordinary neogothic building. In my opinion, one of the best buildings of London:









In Euston road, this church adorned with greek statues:



And more buildings of Nash:



And several high buildings made with glass:

droolable photos. Stunning. If anyone doubts London's credentials as a world class city. Show them this.

A great illustration of the West End in all its glory.
