Trafalgar Square

Day 11 – Trafalgar Square, London, England

April 2015

From Victoria Embankment Gardens, we walked towards London Charing Cross train station. Once in-front of it, we’re able to see Nelson’s column looming. Nelson’s Column is in Trafalgar Square and is a monument erected in remembrance of Admiral Nelson, who died in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

Trafalgar Square is a public space and tourist attraction in central London. Many may not notice or know Britain’s smallest police station is located at one corner of it. London’s secret in the open yet many passed by unaware.

Portobello Road

Day 10 – All Saints Co Ltd, Portobello, London, England

April 2015

It’s worth to mention at the junction of  Portobello road and Westbourne Grove you’ll see this store named ‘All Saints Co Ltd’. They manufacture quality garments. The interesting part of the store, there are not particularly many garments on sale compared to the umpteen sewing machine nicely stacked from floor to the ceiling. I consider this as a sewing machine ‘museum’ rather than a garment store and definitely one of London’s secret.

Neal's Yard

Day 4 – Neal’s Yard, London

April 2015

With time to spare after getting down from Sky Garden, we headed to Neal’s Yard. It’s within walking distance from Covent Garden underground. Be informed as at April 2015, Covent Garden underground is undergoing upgrading works and you can only get off from there. You would have to take Leicester Square or Holborn underground to return.

Neal’s Yard is a short alley which opens into a small courtyard. It contains several health food retailers based on anything natural & organic. I came here after seeing several pictures of the courtyard which the buildings were painted in multiple bright colors and just had to take a few photos of this place. One of London’s secret and a photo spot hidden in a small courtyard
