If you can find Perivale Park on the Western edge of London you will discover the Nicky Hopkins Memorial Park Bench
Nicky, a session muso, played with them all: the Beatles, the Rolling Stone, the Who, the list goes on.
On the the North Walk on the Thames there is the Temple which is the centre of the English law fraternity and where in the 1200s the Magna Carta was signed-making even Kings subject to the Rule of law.
It also has a beautiful garden in the centre of London.
Black Friars Hotel just because it’s there.
Borough Market of course.
If you have your bike or car in London you must go to the Ace Cafe.
So if you have done the Big ones.
St Pauls, the Tower Bridge and all the other big attraction. Look a little further!

A nice park bench to sleep on, Michael. Also, what’s a slow old Guzzi doing lurking outside the famous Ace Cafe? Hope you didn’t start a riot. Weather looks great. Enjoy
You know a slow old guzzi is the perfect machine for a slow old bloke!
What a beautiful little glimpse. Some day I would like to visit. ❤️
Thanks there are special things to find everywhere
What a teaser to check out London, big fan of markets as well. Moved it up on the list lol.
