London

I love and miss London. That's why I'm always interested to read articles like this one.
http://mashable.com/2016/04/06/crystal-palace-subway-reopen-london
Such a beautiful hidden gem, I hope it will be open to the public again soon!


Please use this thread to post anything and everything about the beautiful city of London: photos, videos, articles, books, upcoming events, sketches, blogs, memories etc.

Re: London

Inner and Middle Temple, London. One of the most beautiful parts of an old town, named after Knights Templar, currently full of learned lawyers.

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

And nice people as well.

Lincon´s Inn is a picturesque area right in the vicinity of Inner Temple and Middle Temple, still a part of "Legal London":

Lovely pictures, Nakahara!  I'm only a couple of hours away so can get there and back in a day - it's kind of expensive to go but I'm thinking of another trip (last was for Hamlet, like most of you!).

Re: London

Such lovely pics and a great idea for a thread. I would like to recommend a book I love very much. 

Peter Ackroyd, London. The Biography

It is a very selective and interesting history of the city, told not by a historian but a novelist. You will discover things you never knew and visit places next time you never expected to see. It is not a chronological history. Instead he has overall themes like rivers, crime, madness, entertainment, etc. and connects them over the centuries. 
There is another smaller book by him, London Under, which deals with the world under the metropolis. Fascinating. 
I can highly recommend both of them. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

These are not taken by me, of course (not much of a photographer, I´m afraid), but rather a collection gathered from the internet, of places in London I dream to visit one day. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

So kudos to the skills of an original photographers, for capturing this beauty. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


Hmmm, so that´s how it´s with the doctor. Cunning little rascal! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

And yes, well... we all do have a soft spot for cunning little rascals, don't we? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png


edit: Susi, I think you mentioned the book before and I still haven't bought it. How is that possible? Thanks for the reminder!

Re: London

Another place I definitely wish to see in London is its marvellous "Wetland Centre" placed in Richmond. The beautiful artificial "marsh country" in the heart of the sprawling megalopolis:

I've been to Richmond, but not there.
I did go to a lovely wetland centre with my sister, in Essex.
