Went to photograph the new Banksy in Knightsbridge today only to find that it's now been boarded over and cannot be seen!

Today in history. It was on 30th July 1900 that the Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice was unveiled in Postman's Park close to St Paul's Cathedral. This is one of London's most poignant spots, and a lovely garden to sit and chill in as well. There are 54 ceramic plaques on the wall of the memorial commemorating 62 men, women and children who sacrificed their lives saving the lives of others.

I've always enjoyed the street art around the East End of London. But on Saturday in Fashion Street I stumbled upon the artists creating a piece of street art.

Disabled Travel in London. The only two stations on the London tourist trail that are convenient for Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament (Westminster) and St Paul's (Blackfriars). The secret is to go to the barrier and ask for a member of staff to escort you down to the platform. The new trains have easy roll on access, for the older trains there are ramps that the staff will but down. A member of staff will then be waiting at the other end to escort you off the train.  To get to the Tower of London you can take the 15 bus, the modern ones of which have wheelchair ramps. Tell the driver and he will put the ramp down. You then have an area which is reserved for wheelchairs once on the bus.

Just had a fun, though very wet, day exploring Chelsea in the rain. This remains one of my favourite signs in London.
