Each year when I come back from the Eastbourne at the English coast, I try to arrive early morning in London and spend the day there before catching the Eurostar back to Brussels early evenings. This year after Eastbourne I stayed 3 days in Oxford and had wonderful summer weather, but the day I had to leave for London it rained cats and dogs.
My London tour was fallen into water litterally. I checked out as late as possible and catched the Bus from Oxford to London. It rained and rained. I sat on the top of the bus and had a wonderful view through the rain drops !
London when I arrived. Water streamed over the windshield
The streets looked rather wet ! I took the bus from Victoria Station to St. Pancras to see as much as possible from rainy London. It was August 4, fortunately before the riots started.
It cleared up a bit when I arrived at King's Cross, St. Pancras Station is just on the other side.
I had 3 h to discover the Station and did some window shopping. I also had a nice little lunch and
listened to the music of this lady group. They were real good. By the time I had digged out my other camera to make a little video, they stopped for a pause !
The Eurostar part of the station was already decorated for the Olympic games
The people who arrive in London have this view
I also had for once the time to see this beautiful statue
in all it's details. Finally time went by quiet quickly and I had to check in at 4.30 to leave at 5 pm. Outside it still rained. What a pity.
