Lunch time in London is when I wander around the central city, taking photos and enjoying the new environment. It has nearly been 1 month since moving from New Zealand to London. After moving into a flat last weekend, I’m finally starting to settle into the UK lifestyle. People have even started asking me for directions – which never ends well.
As always, I’ve been taking the camera with me every day and taking photos during my lunch time walk around the city. Surprisingly, I’ve only been rained on once since arriving in London.
Below are a collection of photos from lunch time in London, as well as a few snaps from a very ‘touristy’ weekend.
Working in the London Bridge area, makes lunch time in London especially interesting. The well known Borough Market is at the end of the road, and from there you can walk along side the River Thames.
The photo above is Shakespeare’s Globe and below is St Paul’s Cathedral – both within 5 minutes of the office.
One thing that I really enjoy about London, are the many buskers throughout the underground. They actually go through an audition process to make the cut, so they are always really good!

Last weekend, we hired some bikes to explore the Buckingham Palace / Westminster area. The highlight of the day was running into the protestor pictured below with an interesting message (and outfit).
Friday’s lunch time in London usually makes the start of ‘Friday drinks’. The photo above shows a group of business men enjoying a pint or six to celebrate the end of the working week.
We’re off to Prague tomorrow night. I’m really looking forward to having a look around there. I hear there is a lot of history. If you know of any interesting places or activities to do in Prague please let me know by commenting below or sending me a message.
Until next time,
