Reasons to Love London: No. 47

I work in central London.  On my way to work it is not unknown for me to witness the burnt-out shell of a motorbike being doused by fire-fighters.  Ambulances siren their way up and down the major route outside my office window.  Diesel engines in their death throes amble past, all deafening low-frequency noise and very little motion.

And yet a three-minute walk from my office is this lunch-haven.

This is a tiny corner of one of London’s famous park squares.  Check out a map of the city and you’ll see they are all over the place.  Today, while eating my lunch in the centre of one of the busiest cities in the world, I listened to the birds sing their hearts out for 40 minutes.

    :) It’s just beginning to warm up a bit here, I’m excited to spend lunches and afternoon stress-breaks outside.

    A little nature goes a long way to lifting my mood. Beautiful.

    I’ve just caught up with your blog…and your living room is looking great. The new fireplace completely transforms the space and the F&B looks fab on the walls. I’m sorry about your rubbish-tradesmen palaver. How frustrating? Very.

    When I worked in London I loved going exploring at lunchtime. I used to walk through Spittalfiends, and down through Finsbury Park. It was wonderful…
