London – February 2022

Our first trip this year took us to London – in February.  It was pretty cold.  Our first stop was Kingsbury Water Park near Birmingham,  followed by Moreton-in-Marsh in the Cotswolds.

Not much tourist activity on this trip, although we finally got to the tower, on a miserable grey day.  The hiighlight was the Beefeater guided tour.  Our Beefeater was ex-Navy, a jovial chap and highly entertaining.  The group following us got an ex-Army, who took his role-play seriously – half the group looked terrified.  The crown jewels were suitably impressive but also somewhat depressing, having seen the puny-in-comparison Scottish crown jewels a few years ago.

Visited Greenwich on one of the better days:

Returned home on 9 March via a couple of nights at Chapel Lane.
