Hoodie Camden Markets
On the 9th we decided to pick a random station on the tube (bank station) & go spend time exploring that area. It ended up being a business district, which included leadenhall markets unfortunately the markets were closed. But the area was really pretty with lots of interesting Artechiture.
Most of the old buildings in london have a plaque near by. These plaques are usually relating to moments in history the most common one being WWI & II. The building in the right hand corner top row, use to be the orignal Lloyds Insurance building. The 2 plaques on it lists the name's of the men & women that fell serving & as civilian casualties during WWI & II that originally worked for Lloyds. So if you would like to learn more about history. & have the time its well worth reading the plaques.
After exploring the area we went off to Forbidden Planet which is the largest pop culture store in the UK. I hugely recommend you guys go to, as they have 2 floors, one of merch & the other is comics/books. Really wish they were in perth as there was so many books I could've easily have walked out with but that was foiled quickly by the luggage allowences. I did on the other hand find this Mabel limited edition pop! & snapped that up. We also walked past the place where the cursed child play is being shown at.
Lastly a surrealist pop art mural that caught my eye in one of the tube stations, turned out to be by Eduado Paolozzi. So I guess the fun fact about london is you could be walking past artwork by famous artists & not even know it. Next just an angel statue from one of the buildings on Oxford st that also caught my eye. Then photos of london skyline after dark from the Emirates air line cable car, this time minus the rain.
