A Rambling Trip Around South London

After a meeting at Purley I Stopped off at East Croydon where I decided to Ramble Around South London seeing where the Buses and Trams would take me.

My first journey was from George street to Wimbledon on the number 4 Tram.  At Wimbledon, I stopped off at Greggs for a hot slice then decided to travel back to Central London via the bus network.  To this end I got a 156 which terminated at Vauxhall (going past Battersea Power Station I got to see the TBMs that are being used to create the tunnels for the Northen Line spur to the power station).

I had a choice here of heading home or continuing somewhere else, so I picked a bus at random which ended up being a 360 going to the Royal Albert Hall, where I got to take a couple of pictures of the Royal Albert Hall and the Albert Memorial.

    

From the Royal Albert Hall, I took a number 10 to Kings Cross via Oxford Street and Euston.  At Kings Cross I went looking for, and found the entrance to Platform 9¾.  After pottering around for a short while I the randomly picked a number 214 going to Liverpool Street.

At Liverpool Street, I managed to get turned around a bit and ended up totally missing the station and ending up on Gracechurch Street.  I decided then to take a 47 back home.  On the way, I managed to get a snap of the Monument.
