Down London...

A great weekend in London... Culture and urbanism...
First up, out to the O2 for the War of the Worlds live... an album I had back in 1978 !
A full house, and we had great seats booked a year ago... a really great show...
Into central London and braved Fortnum and Masons, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, and then a meal in Covent Garden.
Sunday morning we walked along the Thames from Vauxhall, past the clubbers emerging from an all-nighter at Lightbox under the arches, Tate Modern, Westminster and the London Eye. The Southbank Christmas Market was setting up...

A pause at Gabriel's Wharf, where there was a sand sculptor at work... Past Oxo Tower and Coin Street: a classic Geography case study from the past.

Past the Undercroft: a celebrated skate park, which was threatened with removal recently as part of a proposed redevelopment plan.

And a finish at the Tate Modern, where I went to this interesting exhibition of images and artefacts of conflict over the last century....

A good way to kick off the Christmas break....
