The cityscape I shared earlier this week was taken last Saturday. Afterwards, we popped over to Leicester Square to see The Life of Pi at the Empire. I really liked the lights in the square this year.
As it was a dry evening (and there haven’t been too many of those this winter), we walked back to Waterloo.
Of course, I had to snap a few shots as we walked.
I do like the South Bank and its devotion to the Arts. There’s always something to see or do, much of it free. A big playground for young and old, even if you haven’t got tickets for a play, concert or film.
The Royal Festival Hall foyer was cheerful and bright.
The lights outside were pretty.
We wished we’d managed to come up during the Winter Festival and vowed to make it a date for next year.
I love walking in London at night.
As someone who avoids urban areas (especially after dark), I like seeing what I’m missing.
Well there are certainly some parts of London that I would avoid after dark, but the South Bank is not one of them.
Not a safety issue . . . I’m a homebody. Going out in the evening implies socializing. Ugh!
Ah, I understand. I am not a big party goer myself.
Did you enjoy Life of Pi? I miss city night walking.
Yes, the whole family enjoyed it very much. It’s rare that the same film will appeal to all four of us, including a 17 year-old boy and a twelve year-old girl.
london has such a lovely vibe
I agree. 🙂
I love the photo of Charing Cross, you’ve made it beautiful.
Thank you. 🙂
Wasn’t The Life of Pi a great story? You didn’t know what really was happening till the end… 🙂
Absolutely. And it led to a lively family discussion about truth, faith, realism etc, over supper. 🙂
Lovely lights…and I rather enjoy the circle in the background of the escalators…wonderful.
Thanks. Yes, that’s my favourite. A hasty grab shot and not the best alignment as I didn’t want myself in the frame 😉
Still well done…and you’re welcome. 🙂
South Bank is lovely. Always good for a walk. When it’s cold, go for a warm up coffee or sit down in the South Bank centre.
Great photos. Particularly the festival lights along the south bank.
Hi Jaina. Yes, it’s one of my favourite areas.
Beautiful displays – how fun for your family that you’re able to make little jaunts into London!
Thanks, Tricia. We were saying just the other day that we don’t do it enough. We will try to make more time for it this year.
