the southbank

we went exploring on saturday. we had tickets to see the paul smith exhibition at the design museum on the south bank of the thames. after this there was no plan. so we wandered, we fooled around, we stopped for lunch, we snooped around on a battleship. here are just a few snaps that we took along the way. more to follow in posts about the exhibition and the battleship hms belfast.

    South Bank is possibly my favourite part of London. What was HMS Belfast like? Keep wondering whether to take L or not. As ever beautiful pics too, but that goes without saying πŸ˜‰ xx

    Stunning photos as always that always remind me of family day trips to London. My children love to visit the tower. I love the colour in all your photos and the angles you take. Looks like a lovely stroll along the river. Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.
