Bits of London

I was in London with work this work. Here’s some bits and bobs of what I managed to see while I was there.

This is a new sculpture at Aldgate, commemorating Geoffrey Chaucer. There’s some interesting information about it here. Apparently there’s an owl somewhere in the rafters but I only found that out later.

On Tuesday I visited the John Sloane Museum for their once-a-month candlelit evening opening. It’s an eclectic collection of Roman/Egyptian artefacts and Victorian narrative paintings set in a mini-architectural maze. Quite wonderful and well worth the visit. Unfortunately they don’t let you take a camera inside, but you can browse some pictures here if you like.

And here’s some of the more ‘famous’ sights from near Tower Gateway where I was staying.
