Quick Trip Number One

Short walk round Central London

I started this trip by taking a 199 to Canada Water where I changed over to a 1 going to Holborn.  Getting off at Aldwych I crossed over to view the Piccadilly Railway station “Strand” where I got a couple of pictures of the façade.  From there I walked down to the bus stops R and S to view some of the buses passing by.

Walk Two – Deptford to Isle of Dogs

The Walk

I started this walk by gong to the Colonnades and through the arch, passed the houses to the entrance to the garages to find the World War II Memorial for the Royal Victoria Yard.

After viewing the Memorial, I walked along Longshore to the Green Space in front of Bembridge House and walk along the side of it until I got to Daubeny Tower and onto Bowditch, and walked up to Grove Street.

I turned left into Grove Street and continued down to Sayes Court Park, where I walked through and into Sayes Court Street and then into Prince Street, where I joined the Thames Path and followed it all the way to Greenwich.

From here I crossed the Thames to Island Gardens via the Greenwich Foot Tunnel.

From Island Gardens, I followed the Thames Path North side until I reached Canary Wharf, where I took a Jubilee line train back to Canada Water and walked to the Wetherspoon pub The Surrey Docks for a refreshing pint at the end of this long walk.

Photos from this walk can be seen on Flickr and My Site

From here I looked for looked for the Canal Approach.  I found it protected by gates so could not go any further. Continue reading “Walk One – Around Deptford and Greenwich”

Thames Path Deptford to Greenland Dock

On Friday 28th May 2010 I decides to go for a short walk before heading  to Catford for a few enjoyable pints in the Catford Ram.
This walk went in the opposite direction from the one I took on Wednesday.
