So Saturday night was just about as good as it gets. We absolutely love London; we travel the World but totally love the fact that one of the greatest cities on the planet is just 90 minutes train ride away. The St Pancras railway station building is nothing short of magnificent, probably architect Gilbert Scott’s greatest creation and the country’s best example of Gothic architecture; these days it houses surely England’s most majestic bar. We enjoy some very expensive cocktails, silly money but you have to say it’s worth every penny just to be there. On from there to the Darwin Brasserie and the Sky Garden, 35 floors up in the “Walkie-Talkie” building, good food, good service, utterly magnificent views across London’s night scene. Great evening, great weekend, love everything we’ve done, literally everything, all in the great company of Andy (Michaela’s brother) and his lovely wife Claire.
Sunday sees a wander through London’s green spaces, not so green after this long hot and oh-so-non-English summer. Parched parks, barren dust bowl ground, but we’ve loved the weather. We English don’t get many summers like this!
But what we always have is London; wonderful, vibrant, passionate, entertaining and inclusive city that it is. We love our country, we are very proud of London. Great, great city.
