Having been to several of the other sites around London, I wanted to check out a different attraction.  This led me to the Museum of London

 

Stuck in the middle of a business area, the museum seemed a bit out of place initially.  Walking in, I was shocked by how big it was.  Greeted by a young lady with the lovely British courteousness, I walked into this free museum and started diving into the depths of London’s vast history.

Talk about old, London before London….

 

Medieval London

 

The People’s City, 1850’s – 1940’s.

 

More of the People’s City

 

The pictures do not do it justice.  In hindsight, I should have taken more, but was caught up reading everything.  We all know that London is an old city, built upon wars and triumphs, but really seeing the changes through the years helps you to appreciate the tumultuous history and pride that Britain has for our ancestral country.  From essentially conquering the world, then war, plague and fire, the United Kingdom has lived through the ups and downs that no country wants to experience.

Definitely worth checking out.

Dinner at Blacklock in London, England

Blacklock
24 Great Windmill St,
Soho, London W1D 7LG

After shooting some sunset pictures over the historical Parliament building, I wanted to eat at a nice, nearby restaurant.  Doing a quick Google search, I found the chop house Blacklock hidden away on Great Windmill Street.

At first I couldn’t find it, I walked down the street, hit the cross road Brewer Street and turned around only to unknowingly pass it again.  After asking for directions from teh nearby security guard, I eventually found it hidden away underneath the structure above.

Into the restaurant we go! The small, hidden door off of Great Windmill St.

Dinner, a little green and a lot of meat. All washed down with a local beer.

Pork belly anyone, yes please!
