    Thanks ~ you just added nine more things to my “must see” before leaving London ;) Actually, I’ve been wanting to go to the Banqueting Hall for awhile now so I’ll do that then walk through Shepherd Bush. Two birds and all…

      I assume you mean Shepherd Market… not Shepherd’s Bush… don’t go to the latter by mistake… just a big Westfield shopping centre there!

        Opps…I did mean market. Too many trips on the central line has Shepherds Bush in my head. ;)

    I lived in London for 15 years, but knew only five of these. Your blog would have been a wonderful resource at the time!
