There’s something to be said about earning your afternoon tea. When you walk for miles all over London in cold weather, you can work a big appetite. Even in rainy weather, London is more magical than ever when you explore the sites of the All Souls Trilogy with a kindred spirit. And afternoon tea at The Wolseley tastes better when you’re in the company of a foodie that can tell you all about the tea sandwiches. The whole experience is truly a double treat!
I have been fortunate enough to visit London a few times, and London has always been my favourite place to go on vacation. But this time, it was like looking at this wonderful city through a different set of lenses. I went to places in London that I had never visited, or even heard of, and when I went back to the sites I had been to in the past, I saw things that I hadn’t noticed before. Our friend Wendy recounts her adventure in London, finding Diana and Matthew’s old friends and places.
Proceeding south from St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Blackfriars is just a few blocks away, whether you’re consulting the Agas Map or Google Maps. Since the Blackfriars and Baynard’s Castle are featured in Shadow of Night, and The Book of Life, finding them on the two maps, and comparing the maps is a lot of fun.
