Snow in Hyde Park and Mayfair London

Some photos I took whilst walking in the snow today through Hyde Park and into Mayfair. Because I wasn't planning to take any pics I didn't have my camera with me and so had to make do with my camera-phone. Apologies if the quality as a result isn't great.

Doesn't London look beautiful covered in snow! Such fantastic photos, and everyone looks like they are having fun!! (except those who have to drive, that is....)

Beautiful images you've captured there! London looks swanky in the snow! Though it looks swanky without it too... It's a city that can be dressed up any which way and not fail to enchant.

Wow, Mayfair looks eerily quiet!

And your phone takes better quality photos than my camera does.

Where there any parts of London that were operating as normal? My mother sent me a text yesterday saying she couldn't get to work because her tube line wasn't running. It must be quite '28 Days Later' seeing Central London without hordes of people.

It must be a HUGE mess when it snows in London, my city goes nuts when it snows, accidents, no transport, not to mention the amount of sludge you have to walk through.

So beautiful seeing London like that. Love the 2nd photo with the girl and guy in the snow and the 3rd one is like a fairy tale. In all the park ones look like Narnia

London looks great in snow. Your camera phone did a very good job as well.

Nice photos, and agree London does look good with snow.

London is not a city that normally gets snow, right?

It usually gets a little sprinkling of snow once a year, or perhaps once every couple of years, but getting 8 inches is very unusual!
