From The Tower we walked into the City of London. The City, often referred to as the Square Mile is home to the financial district of London. London is split into districts/boroughs and the City of London is a distinct part of London. We hadn't a plan. Once we'd seen the poppies we just wandered until it was lunch time. We visited places by accident to do with the Great Fire of London and the impressive architecture of Leadenhall Market drew us in; where we found a military band just setting up to entertain the crowds.
Even though I've spent my life living just 50 miles outside of London and have been countless time I am still an unashamed tourist loving the underground signs and old fashioned London Buses.
So I had a lovely, if a little exhausting, day in London. There was definitely lots of red everywhere I went.
