HCC Evening Trip to London

Andy    August 1, 2017

Those of you who have been following the What’s New section of the website, may remember that Rob Weavers was organising an evening trip into London one Thursday evening at the end of July (see the original post here). Well I’m pleased to report that the trip went ahead and 4 of our members were able to join Rob.

As I understand it everyone had a really good time and are all looking to the next trip, however you can read about it here in Rob’s own words

Last week, a small, yet intrepid group of HCC members boarded a train, laden with camera gear and set off to boldly explore Old London Town.

London, as a city, offers such a huge array of photographic opportunities, and we started our walk from Covent Garden (and yes, myself and Matt did climb the 193 steps from the tube to ground level!) with its mixture of stunning architecture and amazing street performers.

From Covent Garden we ambled down to The Strand and along to Somerset House, taking in the summer fountain display and yet, somehow, avoiding the lure of the oh, so inviting Peroni Ambra Bar!

A short walk over Waterloo Bridge and the vibrance of Southbank welcomed us.

Southbank is my personal favourite choice of location as it simply has EVERYTHING. Iconic London landmarks, people of all cultures, street performers, street food, bars, atmosphere and photo opportunities by the bucket load. London never disappoints.

From Waterloo Bridge we made our way along to the London Eye before once again crossing the river, before taking refuge at The Sherlock Holmes for a chilled beverage and a re-cap on a most enjoyable evening.

Plans are already being made for our next London adventure.

As Rob says he’s looking to organise another trip soon. If you’re interested please contact Rob directly (www.lamaisonblanc.co.uk) or keep an eye on the HCC website where it’ll be advertised
