London Doors

We walked ALOT during our recent visit to London. Sooooo much to see. And so little time. But i would argue that the very best way to really see a city is from the street. 

And I couldn’t help but collect a few photos of Doors along the way….. 

The gates to Kensington Palace.

The Household Cavalry Door. 

A pub door. 

Doors at Shakesphere’s Globe Theatre

The Door to Spencer House

Near St. James Park. 

A Fleet Street Door – and friendly doorman. 

And, of course, the doors to Canada House … with Nelson’s Column reflected in the window.

Reflecting …

A couple of moments of peaceful reflection in the middle of London – the self-proclaimed “capital city of the world”.  

A swan and some clouds in Hyde Park, London.

The view from the bridge in St. James Park.

Doors of Portobello Road 

Exploring Notting Hill, just over a week ago, we were treated to some gorgeous doorways along this famous, vibrant road.  Let’s take a walk ….

Each of the entrances to these terraced houses have such a lot of individuality and personality.  

And, at No 22, the the former home of George Orwell. 

That’s enough walking.  Time for a cup of tea …. or maybe a gin & tonic.

The Doors of Mowsley

A stop in South Leicestershire village of Mowsley and Sunday Lunch in the local. 

This 500 year old village has a population of just over 300.  It boasts a terrific pub …. The Staff of Life, where we found a wood fire in the fire place, an older gentleman in a chair by the fire and a handful of fellas leaning on the bar with their pints … and some very fine food. 

And in Mowsley, of course, there are lots of very pretty Doors …
