Cosmic Winter Break in London

Lucky me, I just had a lovely weekend in London! We stayed at a hotel in Westminster right next to Big Ben.


It's dark by 4pm now - half moon shining all night...


The South Bank was just full of people enjoying the Winter Wonderland festival.


Lots of things spinning...





So we we ate and drank at the food stalls... soaked up the party atmosphere.







Then Sunday was lovely and bright.  We walked along the river to the Globe Theatre.



Along the Embankment to Tower Bridge.








 ...and then up into the East End.


Where we hit foodie HEAVEN in all the street markets... oh we tried everything...




The East End was just so ALIVE!!!







Then we went on the Jack the Ripper Walk (info here).  Marching with our group all over Whitehall, stopping off and hearing the grisly details...






Brrr... stories that chill the soul... but just enough time to mention the Brick Lane Cocktail... f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c!!


Final day we'd decided to visit the Science Museum - fodder for brain matter!


From development of telegram communications...



... to those supercomputer-thingies...


used very early on to calculate the cost of death...


... and on to the interconnectedness of not just EVERYTHING on Earth - but the entire universe...



Before embarking our flying machine back to Glasgow...


We love London :-)  It turned out to be a COSMIC experience x
