47. Chancery Lane

Chancery Lane is on the Central (Red) Line, bang in the middle of the Inns of Court.

During the week this area is teeming with life - lots of trendy bars and restaurants, but this was a Saturday afternoon, lots of places were closed and the streets virtually empty!

I was meeting a friend for lunch, we then went along to the British Museum and then to a Literary evening at the Yorkshire Grey.

There are some lovely "squares" and gardens here, and being a lovely sunny afternoon it was very pleasant to sit and watch the world go by.

46. South Kensington

South Kensington is on the District (Green) and Circle (Yellow) Lines. It is the station serving Exhibiton Road - the street that the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum are all in.

Now I have to say that I didn't go up onto the street when I left the station because I took the underpass along to the V & A - I was going there to see an Exhibition on Chocolate. Well I thought I was going to see an Exhibition on Chocolate but it turns out it was just a small display, very disappointing. However I went to see several other exhibitons when I was there and I actualy really enjoyed it. I will have to check the write-ups properly before going back though!
