London

Here some pictures i took in London, where i stayed 10 days ago. I have tried to show you not only touristical pictures, but also many pictures of less famous neighbourhoods and some suburbs far away from the city-center. I hope you enjoy!



1.



Near Leicester Square.

2.



Southwark/ Bermondsey.


3.



The Docklands, a large area with offices, appartmens and a shopping mall, in the east of London.

4.



Clapham Junction, in my opinion an ugly suburb.

5.


Near Trafalguar Square.

6.




7.



The City, with the St-Pauls Cathedral and some skyscrapers.

8.





9.



Southwark/ Bermondsey.

10.



11.



Feeding the birds in the Hyde-park.

12.



Near Greenpark.


13.



The Docklands.

14.



The Thames with the Houses of Parlement, at left you see a bit of the London Eye.

15.






16.



Westminster Abbey.

18.



Southwark/ Bermondsay, nearby the Tower Bridge.

19.





20.



A pelican! in the Greenpark.


21.




St.-Pancras, one of the many trainstations. The trains you see are the Eurostars. The train that connect Brittain with France by the Channel tunnel.

22.





23



I think this is Oxford Street, a main shopping street in the city-center.

24.





25.




26.



The tube, the oldest metro in the world. Some stations are very futuristic, other ones (like this) a bit oldfashioned, but with a good ambiance.


27.



Near Paddington Station.

28.



MI6, the Secret service.

29.



Houses of Parlement.

30.



The Docklands.

31.



Mayfair, expensive houses near the Hyde Park. look at the Lamborghini.

32.




Just a few flatblocks near Waterloo station.


33.






34.



Near Paddington Station.

35.




36.



Southwark/ Bermondsey

36.



Sunrising Hyde-Park.

Jesus I love this city so much. Nice thread, decent mix of tourist and non-tourist London.

Great pics.

You can see the old commie-block where my ex-girlfriend used to live in no. 35 (tall tower block near the centre of the pic). I see this building every time I travel into town and every time I see it, I get a little shiver up my spine. Good times.
