No Parking

On the day when the local newspapers were reporting that car owners will be given a grace period before they are clamped (booted) I thought it was very ironic that right beside a sign which says “No Parking” that there were two cars parked illegally. Whilst I was taking the picture someone came along who lived in the mews and they didn’t seem very happy either.

London Underground

I had to navigate the London Underground today by myself. I was able to travel from A to B without any problems. I will look at the journey planner next time to ensure that I know the quickest route.

There is a Guinness World Record for travelling around the 275 stations in the fastest time possible. I can’t imagine where you would start looking at the map, but apparently the record stands at 18 hours 25 minutes and 3 seconds. It must be really frustrating if the northern line train is going to High Barnet when you want to go to Edgware.

Primrose Hill

Primrose Hill is a park on the north side of Regent’s Park in North London. It has been a couple of years since I visited the park. The hill has a wonderful view of central London. It overlooks Regent’s Park and London Zoo.

The aviary for London Zoo can be seen in foreground of the picture beyond the path. Centerpoint on Tottenham Court Rd., London Telecom Tower (formally BT Telecom Tower) on Cleveland St., and the Millenium Eye on the South Bank can be seen in the distance.

You might recognise the park. It was in the films Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason and Maybe Baby.
