There’s a sweet spot for exploring London. Late enough for everything to be lit up and pretty, early enough that the city workers aren’t too drunk. I’ve been exploring the area from Barbican to the Millenium Bridge this evening, seeing St Pauls Cathedral and the Guild Hall as well as modern sky scrapers and brutalist architecture.
I’ve been at a database conference all day in the Barbican Centre, and it’s a confusing place. Take a wrong turn and you go from the brutal concrete and glass bridges to tropical gardens. I’d love a proper tour of the place, but all too soon I have to go back to Yorkshire.
Planning on spending some of next weekend in York, mostly for the railway museum.
Oh, and I think I’ve finally found a simple Tumblr theme which works on desktop and mobile for all content types. I don’t get why that’s a difficult thing to achieve.
