This section of "Places to Go" covers London . I live on the South East fringe of the London suburbs on the borders of Kent. This means that I can easily reach central London in less than half an hour by train and a further journey using the underground railway, docklands light railway or a london bus can take me anywhere in the capital city or the surrounding area..A new clean Nelsons Column

This section describes some of my favorite places in the city that can be enjoyed on a day out, including attractions, gardens, palaces, museums and historical buildings. Some of these places I had never visited before and some not since I was a small child. London was my place of work for over 30 years, but there is a tendency to take all this history forgranted when it is on your doorstep.

A great advantage of a day out in London is that you are not so affected by the weather, you can always find an attraction like a museum or art gallery that makes a great day out even in winter, especially if accompanied by a hot meal in one of the hundreds of snack bars and restaurants.

The number of attractions in London is enormous, so this selection only incudes those that I have visited recently and were interesting enough to warrant a page to themselves.

Please use the links on the left to visit a listed location, where there is a short description and some photographs.
