Victoria here, relating our activities after the Duke of Wellington Tour back in September 2014. After wandering Hampstead, Kristine and I needed a good sit-down -- and where better than on a London bus...so we grabbed one and had a ringside seat for the street scenes from Hampstead all the way to the City of London. It is always fun to explore a new area -- and we were looking for Cheapside, once a popular shopping area.
Here's a bit of what we saw -
Elia, Charles Lamb, a bust by William Reynolds-Stephens in Gitspur Street on the wall of St. Sepulchre-without-Newgate
Christchurch Greyfriars Garden
St. Mary-le-Bow interior
Bank of England
Duke of Wellington by Francis Leggatt Chantrey;
The Duke, Queen Victoria, and Frederick Augustus II, King of Saxony, attended the unveiling on June 18, 1844, anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.
