Poppies at the Tower of London

By | November 10, 2014

Little Sis and I had a rather epic day out. We took our favourite Met train to the end of the line, ticking off Aldgate Station from our neglected list of Underground stations.

Then we walked to the Museum of London to see their latest exhibition, Sherlock Holmes: The Man Who Never Lived and Will Never Die. On the way we spotted this Paddington statue by the Guildhall, part of the Paddington Trail for the new film.
