|Southwark Cathedral is built of flints. It is beautiful inside and out, We heard some fine singing by the Cathedral choir. Possibly a piece by Lauridsen
From the Anchor Tap we walked across a very crowded Tower Bridge and made our way to the Barbican Centre, new ground for both of us. There is a very interesting Conservation area where tropical plants are grown and it includes a small pond with a great number of large fish which are easily seen in the very clear water.
|Although the Barbican conservation area is spectacular there is a well frequented outdoor area with many water features which was bell frequented by people as well as coots.
We finally caught the Piccadilly line back to Gloucester Road and a short walk took us to the Drayton Arms which served up an excellent Sunday roast pork lunch.
