Saw this coming into Waterloo for the first time today. It looked like it could have been a block or two away! I'm planning to get to London early next year to have a proper look. Got to do it soon, it's like an American having the opportunity to watch the ESB go up.

Imagine being in the Shangri-La Hotel on a snowy day. A white carpert over London.
