Ha ha! Well done Rosie for winning the hypothetical prize, I have indeed been to Paddington Station in London and found a whole heap of Paddington Bears in WH Smith entertaining the tourists. Darkest Peru is still on my list of places to visit.
Today, I'm just going to give you a flavour of some of the grand buildings which looked fabulous in the sun.
|Royal Academy of Arts and Burlington Arcade with one of the Thomas Heatherwick designed buses outside.|
|Apsley House, where the Duke of Wellington used to live and the entrance to Hyde Park|
|Wellington on his horse near the Wellington Arch, the bronze on top of which is currently undergoing conservation.|
|The Ritz Hotel|
|Horse Guards Parade with the London Eye in the background|
|Coming out of the Arch at Horseguards|
|Another new block of flats changing the skyline in Blackfriars|
21st April 2016 is Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday. All the celebrations are taking place in Windsor so the flagpoles of The Mall leading up to Buckingham Palace didn't have any celebratory flags on them, they did have crowns on though!
