Tower Bridge is one of the most iconic sites of London. I have visited this place a few times, but have never really managed to go back since they had installed a glass floor on the highest walkway.

Walking around the Southbank in London I came across this colourful and amazing tunnel. Although I have passed many times near to this area, I never thought that a place like this existed.

Over the Box Hill!

The very picturesque Box Hill is famous for its fascinating panoramic views of the south. Leopold Salomons gave the original 230 acres of Box Hill to the National Trust, and he had a viewpoint structure, Salomons Memorial, built to commemorate his gift. The views are really impressive. One thing I found interesting was that although... Continue Reading →
