Wonderful pics

The City is always so empty at the weekend - still, it gives it a certain charm

Excellent pictures! What's the story behind that Leadenhall Market?

London seems to have countless nook and crannies where interesting buildings, parks, statues, and other stuff can be found.

Superb thread. I love the medevil streets of London, especially when compared to their sisters in Westminster, a surprise around every corner.

I don't know what is on photos number 4,5 and 6 but it looks great. Is this maybe some kind of gallery?

Really nice photos. I like them and I hope you'll continue this thread.

Good work Greco!

London is so unique, the architecture, the narrow streets and alleys and the diversity..

wow you've captured the nooks and crannies of the city of London very well, its this winding random street layout which gives this place so much character!
