It was a much shorter walk today. And in the sparkling winter sunshine, through the centre of town from Covent Garden to the City, it was also a more picturesque walk. Along High Holborn, where the lawyers hang out, we saw some highly decorated buildings.
Shervington's - the famous tobacconist's in High Holborn
Entering The City at Holborn
High Victorian gothic architecture in High Holborn - the Prudential Assurance building
The Old Bailey - central criminal court
Inscription above the door of the Old Bailey: "Defend the Children of the Poor & Punish the Wrongdoer"
Then we came into The City, very close to where I used to work near St Paul's Cathedral and Cheapside. It was really good to remind myself what a incredible place The City is to have an office.
There has been a whole new fancy-pants shopping centre built and opened down Cheapside since I left work. For a moment, it all felt a bit too new and different for my liking.
