A day out in London

October 14, 2010

Should I should I not go to a meeting of Climate Rush at Toynbee Hall in London? That be the question. I could combine it with a visit in the afternoon to the V&A to see the Sistine Tapestries by Raphael and that is what I did.

I set off later than I wished. I decided first to eat at Food For Thought in Covent Garden. I could have got the tube, but it is a pleasant walk across Hungerford Bridge over the Thames, then through Victoria Embankment Gardens.

From Hungerford Bridge there is a stunning view downstream.

I looked in St Paul’s Church and found a cat either Inigo or Jones curled up on a prayer cushion.

I have been eating at Food for Thought for many years. It is one of the best places to eat in London. I had chickpea and spinach soup (for which I am hoping for the recipe) with their delicious bread, followed by salad, followed by banana and strawberry scrunch washed down with a cup of not very good tea.

I would also recommend their cookbook, New Food for Thought.

From Covent Garden tube station direct line to South Kensington.

I used to be a frequent visitor to the other museums in South Kensington, but never the V&A.

The Sistine Tapestries were breathtaking and well worth seeing.

From South Kensington direct tube to Aldgate East and my meeting at Toynbee Hall with Climate Rush on climate change and what activists can do. The meeting was packed and well worth attending.

After I went to a launch and fundraising party for a documentary film Just Do It.

Then home.
